Chelsea versus Liverpool

Two teams who will want to score from the onset

This match always has memories for a #LFC fan. This fixture’s history has the controversial Luis Garcia’s ghost goal, heart breaking Torres transfer and the even more heart-breaking Gerrard slip. These moments has ignited an intense rivalry between the historically success Liverpool and the recently successful Chelsea. Both clubs deserve their success and have in the recent past undergone re-structuring. Ok, I agree Chelsea are still in that phase.

While Liverpool started re-organizing and re-structuring the club ever since the #FSG takeover and it looks like the successful re-structure culminated with the champions league trophy in May. Chelsea re-structuring looks more chaotic and a need arising from the boredom of an extravagant owner. With constant shuffling of manager and buying extravagant players to buy success, Chelsea has rightfully underperformed when the extravagant owner cut down the purse. However, in appointing Lampard as their manager, the owner has taken a right step, but will he persevere with him a till the end of 2021, it remains to be seen.

With respect to the match today, it is imperatively going to be a high intensity match with both teams trying to achieve their season goals. Liverpool’s only goal is to win the league this season and the early slip from Manchester City has provided them with an early advantage but more importantly pressure to continuously be ahead of Manchester City. To keep this pressure, Liverpool has to literally win every game, especially, considering how the wounded tiger thrashed Watford yesterday. Therefore, Liverpool cannot afford errors like the ones in mid-week against Napoli. Expect them to play an all-out attack from the onset.

On the contrary, Lampard and Chelsea have on real-pressure of expectations on them because they are in the phase Liverpool was 3 years ago. Lampard hasn’t lost in the league since his first match drubbing against United. His other setbacks came against Liverpool in the super cup and Valencia in the champions league. Expect Lampard to sit behind and use Abraham’s pace on the counter attack to score. With Adrian in the goal, it could be tricky for Liverpool to keep a clean sheet.

Most probable bet: More than 2.5 goals at 1.57 oddsThis match always has memories for a #LFC fan.
