The new Premier League season gets seriously exciting in game week two, as big-spending title pretenders Chelsea host reigning champions Liverpool at Stamford Bridge – and it promises to be an absolute thriller.
You won’t get many chances to back Liverpool at odds-against in a Premier League game and there will be plenty of punters willing to take 6/5 (2.20) in the hope that Liverpool will start this season as they started the last one. Chelsea are as big 9/4 (3.25) to win, while the draw is available at 11/4 (3.75) in places.
It could be that the settled Liverpool team has too much experience at this stage of the season but, with Chelsea having spent £200 million on some great signings, I’m happy to give the outright market a miss. Our Chelsea vs Liverpool tip is over 3.5 goals at odds of 6/4 or better.
There’s no doubt that Jurgen Klopp found the correct balance between attack and defence last season and Frank Lampard’s summer signing suggest he’s also trying to do the same. But that didn’t stop Liverpool starting the season by coming out on the correct side of a 7-goal thriller against Leeds.
Chelsea also scored three against Brighton on the opening weekend, with the Seagulls hitting one in reply in a 1-3 defeat at the Amex Stadium.
Not all past head-to-heads between Chelsea and Liverpool have been high scoring. Indeed, the three matches before last season all produced two goals or less. But Chelsea’s managers were defence-minded coaches at those times, and Frank Lampard enjoys entertaining the Stamford Bridge faithful with a style of football they fully appreciate.
That certainly showed last season when Liverpool won 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in a game that had you wondering why it didn’t end at least 3-3. The two teams then confirmed that impression by producing an 8-goal stunner at Anfield in which eight different players scored.
With Salah looking back to his best last weekend and Timo Werner confident he’ll recover from a late knock, I’m happy to put my money on this being a goal-fest.
