CHE vs LIV Dream11 Prediction for Chelsea vs Liverpool Premier League Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

CHE vs LIV Dream11: Chelsea have been best known for their defensive stability ever since Thomas Tuchel walked through the door as head coach, however such solidarity seems to have disappeared in recent matches, most likely due to the vast injury list that has plagued the Blues. With that in mind, a wounded Liverpool fresh off their first blank of the season will be expected to put things right against a side who have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight Premier League fixtures. However, Liverpool themselves have failed to shut their opponents out in their most recent four matches in all competitions and a Chelsea team boasting the likes of Romelu Lukaku up front are more than capable of accruing plenty of offensive joy in this match with home advantage in their favour.

Who will win today’s CHE vs LIV match?

  • Chelsea have now taken just nine points from the last 18 available after drawing 1-1 with Brighton on Wednesday. Thomas Tuchel continues to lament Chelsea’s injury and COVID problems and things just aren’t clicking on the pitch as they were earlier in the season.
  • They have only managed one clean sheet from their last eight league games and Edouard Mendy leaves for AFCON after this game.
  • Liverpool were also dealt a hammer blow in the title race in midweek after losing 1-0 to Leicester on Tuesday. They could be 12 points behind Manchester City by the time they face Chelsea on Sunday, albeit with a game in hand, but that gap may be too big to overcome even at the halfway mark in the season.
  • Chelsea have lost three of their last five Premier League matches at home to Liverpool and a repeat result wouldn’t surprise given the way things have been going for them of late.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a win for Liverpool in this clash is 2.57 as per bet365.
