In the day of january transfer window closing transfers are always in focus. But not this year, because Chelsea are playing Liverpool tonight.
That is the duel that starts 15 minutes after all other fixtures, and teams are heading into this game in very different moods. Chelsea are secure at the top of the Premier League, while Liverpool dropped to fourth place after serios of dreadfull results.
Sadio Mane is now back from AFCON, so he could feature in some capacity. Seeing how he had been missed in recent games it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him start.
Chelsea don’t have any squad worries. On the other hand Liverpool are without Grujić and Ings, while Lallana and Clyne aren’t fully fit. This could meand Trent Alexander Arnold will start at right back position.
In last six games these teams are dead even with two victories each and two draws. All of these were tight games, even 3:1 Liverpool win at Stamford Bridge. Second Reds goal came in 76th minute.
Liverpool always was team that plays well in big games. Problem for Reds were duels with less famous opponents, where they regularly lose points. Now, after period of crisis we think that it’s time for win on Anfield.
Odds on Liverpool are good, 1 pays with 2,65, while Chelsea’s win is resulted with 2,90 odds. Liverpool will win, but then they will have to start winnig “small games” in order to compete for title.
