Chelsea vs Liverpool Free Betting Tips
Here is the shock of these eighth finals of FA Cup: Chelsea vs Liverpool!
Beaten this weekend at Watford for the first time in the Premier League season, the Reds will barely have time to digest this defeat that will require putting on the blue jacket to go to seek a qualification for the quarter-finals at Stamford Bridge. Still disappointing this weekend in the league with a draw in Bournemouth (2-2), the Blues would see themselves take a little breath of fresh air by offering the scalp of the future champion of England, especially since they could benefit from an unexpected ally: Jurgen Klopp.
In open war with UEFA and the English federation concerning the overload of the calendar, the Liverpool coach did not hesitate to send the young people of the club academy to face Aston Villa in the League Cup (defeat 0-5 ) or Everton and Shrewsbury in previous FA Cup rounds. Will he do the same against Chelsea or will the prestige of the opponent encourage him to review his copy?
Key stats for the match Chelsea vs Liverpool
The composition that Jurgen Klopp will line up is the great unknown of this meeting. Difficult to leave on a 1N2 under these conditions.
During the first leg in Shrewsbury (2-2), the German coach had aligned a mix between young players and professionals (Fabinho, Lovren, Origi, Minamino, Matip, Adrian. Ditto against Everton, where Milner and Lallana were also holders.
This match may remind us of the 5-5 between Liverpool and Arsenal on October 30, during one of the first rounds of the League Cup. Again, many young people, but competitive!
The Reds played less in February (5 games) than in January (7 games) or in December (9 games), and have 5 games scheduled for March. Maybe that will prompt Jurgen Klopp to line up more regular incumbents.
Chelsea will start as a bookmaker favorite and will have 6 days to prepare the next championship match against Everton. Frank Lampard should line up a quasi-standard eleven!
The two teams have already faced each other this season, and the nets had trembled on both sides: 2-2 in the European super cup last summer, 2-1 for the Reds at Stamford Bridge in the championship.
In its last 11 home games, Chelsea have only produced 2 clean sheets, including 1 against Nottingham Forest in the cup.
The Blues have not particularly shone recently at home: 2-2 against Arsenal, 0-2 against Manchester United, 2-1 against Tottenham and 0-3 against Bayern in LDC.
Free Betting Tips Chelsea vs Liverpool
Chelsea share favorite with the bookmakers (2.10), but the latter keep a relatively “low” rating (2.75) in the event that Jurgen Klopp decides to play this eighth final thoroughly. Even with a redesigned eleven, the Reds have proved that they are nevertheless capable of very good performances (victory against Everton, 5-5 against Arsenal) and bet that the two teams will score at least 1 time seems to us the best option. less risky for an interesting added value!
