Marquee Match of the Week
Liverpool’s agonies could multiply when they meet Chelsea at Anfield tomorrow. Chelsea look rampant in attack and solid in defence, while Liverpool look unsure in attack and shaky in defence. Sadio Mane is back from his international duty, but he has arrived only in the weekend, and may not be risked for this match. Philippe Coutinho too is a doubtful starter for Liverpool. Had these two been available, Liverpool would have been the favourites.
Liverpool have not lost against Chelsea in the last four Premier League outings. While they won both their games at Stamford Bridge, they drew the games at Anfield. Chelsea look the more dominant side, and their fast and skilful wingers could destroy Liverpool’s defence, which looked vulnerable to high balls. As for betting predictions, another win beckons for Chelsea.
Other Interesting Fixtures
Arsenal and Tottenham have relatively easy matches. Manchester City and Manchester United are expected to win their matches against Hull City and West Ham United, respectively. However, Everton’s away match against Stoke City will be a cracker. There are handsome odds of online betting for an Everton win. Swansea’s home match against Southampton too offers attractive odds for all three results.
