This promises to be a humdinger of a game at Stamford Bridge, where Liverpool have a decent record in recent seasons – 4 wins in their last 8 league visits (D2, L2).

But Chelsea are favourites with the bookmakers at 13/10 (generally), while Jurgen Klopp’s side can be backed at 23/10 with Bet365 and the draw at 28/11 with Unibet.

Last season the Reds won here 1-3 – Klopp’s first win as Liverpool manager – in a game featuring two goals from Philippe Coutinho (who was rested last weekend).

But the Blues look a different team to last season – Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are back playing well, while the return of David Luiz provides added intrigue here.

Antonio Conte has won his last 21 league games at home as a manager at Juventus and now Chelsea, while Liverpool have conceded in their last 8 league away games.

We can see this being a draw but rather than backing that, we recommend betting on both 1-1 and 2-2 at best odds of 13/2 and 12/1 respectively with BetVictor.

9 of the last 10 league games between these sides have seen both teams score – and that looks a banker at 4/7 – while 3 of their last 5 games (all comps) finished 1-1.

Finally, Coutinho can be backed to score a goal at stand-out odds of 14/5 with Unibet, while his compatriot Luiz is at 9/1 with Paddy Power to score on his return.
