Chelsea vs Liverpool – Premier League: Manchester City’s excellent start to the season…
makes it seem like Liverpool and Chelsea already have little to no chances of making an impact on the fight for the title.
However, both teams present enough quality on some of their sectors to compromise the Citizens’ dominance. In order for that to happen, the outcome of this match next Saturday seems to be decisive.
Liverpool is coming off a match where their strengths and weaknesses were well exposed.
In attack, they are a team with an enormous ability to take advantage of their opponents’ mistakes, with Salah very well joined by Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino, creating imbalances and presenting a good efficiency with their finishing.
However, defensively, Jurgen Klopp’s team is very far from the minimum standards that are demanded from a team that intends to win the Premier League title.
Chelsea is almost the opposite. With a defence that has been performing at the top level, their attack hasn’t been capable of imposing itself in the same fashion as the other teams that are positioned ahead of them.
Since they only have 1 less goal scored than Liverpool, the changes made in the attacking front were made to try and get a better output
from the creative pieces of Antonio Conte’s starting line-up, but that still hasn’t reflected in terms of quantity.
It is on the alignment of those characteristics that next Saturday’s match ends up being fundamental.
On one hand, realising that, both teams will respond to the challenged they are proposed in this match.
On the other hand, more in terms of resilience, it will be interesting to understand who takes a step forward to keep chasing the leader Manchester City more closely.
Chelsea vs Liverpool – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The data will point towards a more capable Chelsea of, in the long term, being in that race.
But the quality and talent available on Liverpool’s attacking front give them the possibility of being fortunate whenever they play.
