A derby between Chelsea and Liverpool closes the sixth round of the English Premier League. Both sides are coming off disappointing performances in the Champions League and losing another big game would definitely present a massive blow for either side. But besides that, there is a reputation at stake, and a desire to beat the great opponent. Do remember that these two sides played in the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul and that the Red walked away with a trophy after the penalties.
Chelsea lost to Valencia in the Champions League opener, and they did it at home, 0-1. But what made that defeat tragic is the fact that Lampard’s guys had a chance to escape from it. Ross Barkley missed a penalty, and not only that spoiled the chemistry for stubbornly not allowing Willian or Jorginho to take that shot. The tension between them and the English fella was pretty obvious on the pitch following the miss. This was only the second game since the Blues started the season which hasn’t seen at least four goals, and also the second in which both teams haven’t scored. Lampard’s style of play is very appealing and attractive, and demands constant attacking, even if the cost is to concede a goal. Just to mention this data, 5 of the last 10 matches including the preseason ended with five or more scores.
Liverpool lost once again in Naples, and it appears that Carlo Ancelotti knows some secret on how to slow down the Reds regardless of their manager. After six straight wins, this was their first defeat, and the first competitive match this season in which they couldn’t score a goal. We don’t need to tell you about the efficiency of Liverpool’s games. They’ve become a synonym for scoring since Klopp took them over. All the games they played since the preseason started have seen three or more goals.

Great news for all Chelsea’s fans is the return of N’Golo Kante, who will be 100% ready for this match. But several other guys are under a question mark. Emerson, Rudiger, and Mason Mount who picked up an injury against Valencia are all doubtful.
Liverpool will be without three important players. Alisson Becker, the fantastic goalkeeper, Origi and Naby Keita.
Here we have two teams who like to attack and to play very attractive, which is why we believe that anything below three goals would be a massive surprise. On one side you have Abraham, Willian, Pulisic, Pedro, while on the other, Salah, Mane and Firmino. The game in Istanbul is the perfect role model what to expect from Sunday’s derby. There won’t be too much of tactics, but the plain desire for domination on the pitch and for hurting the opponent as soon as possible. Betway’s great odds at 4/7 are the highest on the market, so go there to place your bet.
The next pick is a bit riskier, but pretty common when these teams play. We will propose to invest some of your money on seeing at least two goals in the first half. This match has everything needed for something like that, and we already explained why. 888Sport offers odds at 27/20.
