Premier League Betting Tip | Chelsea v LiverpoolPublished September 15, 2016
Friday night fatties will love the treat in store this week. Stuff your face full of compelling action as Liverpool travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea. Fresh from a week without European action, pundits are looking at this ‘unburdened’ schedule as an opportunity for both clubs to mount title challenges. That’s what the Liverpool of Suarez, Sterling and Rodgers did in 2014.
It’s fair to say that they’ve both had strong starts for this Premier League 2016/17 betting season. Chelsea didn’t fully capitalise on Manchester United’s defeat in the derby versus City but they did move ahead of the Red Devils with a controversial draw against Swansea. Liverpool took seven points from their first four games of the season and, substandard defeat to Burnley aside, have justified their outsiders tag.
As nine goals against Arsenal, Spurs and Leicester illustrate, Jurgen Klopp’s men relish a big match. They won at Stamford Bridge last season but that was during the breakdown of Jose Mourinho’s title-winning side. Now Antonio Conte is in charge of a side recharged by his energy and drive. It’s going to be a closely-fought encounter.
