Liverpool v Chelsea Betting Preview, Odds & Tips
- Date: 14/04/19
- Time: 16:30
- Venue: Anfield
With Liverpool looking fairly comfortable from their Champions League quarter final, opponents Chelsea did enough to snatch away a single away goal to take back to the bridge in the second leg.
With Klopp’s men playing yo-yo at the top of the Premier League, if both win, Liverpool will return to the top of the tree albeit having played a game more and relying on City slipping up to hand them the title assuming the mighty KOP do not slip up here.
Some slight value to be had in this game as readership will discover further in this feature.
Jordan Henderson is odds on to feature alongside Fabinho
Andrew Robertson is available for selection and Naby Keita should make the starting eleven
Dejan Lovren replaced Joel Matip at the back in midweek but Joe Gomez will be competing after the all clear from injury
Maurizio Sarri economised in the Europa League meaning most of the side that beat West Ham on Monday are available
Callum Hudson-Odoi has a great chance of making the cut, whereas Ruben Loftus-Cheek may not be as fortunate if Sarri opts with Mateo Kovacic or Ross Barkley.
Potential Liverpool Starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Dijk, Robertson, Keita, Fabinho, Henderson, Salah, Firmino and Mane
Potential Chelsea Starting XI: Arrizabalaga, Emerson, Luiz, Rudiger, Azpillcueta, Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Hazard, Higuain and Hudson-Odoi

Does Liverpool’s desire to win the Premier League overrule the chances of winning the Champions League for the first time since 2005? I believe that Klopp’s players realise the chase for the title keeps them in the position to pounce City if they slip up. It does go with the preference of is it easier to be leading or chasing?
Chelsea will have as near to full strength side at their disposal, so you have to factor this into the pricing on the basis they are also fighting for position, despite them chasing this, are the favourites to win the Europa League. One could say their priority is the league, and have tactically presented themselves in the European competition as a smart playing side applying the depth of their squad.
How much of the gas will be taken off by Liverpool in this game? Zero with their lead in the Champions League. However, Liverpool will want to maintain the pressure on the top spot. Liverpool chinned us recently against Southampton by conceding early to win 3-1. Chelsea will want to maintain the pressure. Checking the BTTS prices bested with bet365 at 4/5. Liverpool at 7/10 best to win the match combined creeps in around the 2/1 mark. Layers are as big as 12/5 for Liverpool to win but both sides to score, which is a smidgen of value, and has happened more recently than I care to admit. I suspect if there is an early goal, this is prime trading territory.
The shape of betting is changing, and the ability to trade positions is becoming the smarter way to play from the recommendations on this feature, which has subsequently led to a negative position without in-play intervention. For punters not familiar with trading is potentially a good time to consider some self-taught in time for the next campaign. You might be surprised by how judgement will be sharpened in time
