Chelsea – Liverpool : Preview & Prediction
Liverpool 72 – Tottenham 71 – Chelsea 66. Two of these go in the Champions League, so for Chelsea it is the last beach to hook the maximum continental competition, even more because the Reds have played one more game. Livepool comes from two disappointing draws against Stoke and WBA, the last two in the standings, but have just won the Champions League final despite losing 4-2 at Roma. Thanks to Fabregas’s goal and a good dose of luck, Chelsea took the third consecutive win by bending Swansea home. Even if he reached the FA Cup final, scheduled for May 19th, the lack of qualification in the Champions League of Chelsea would be a disaster for Conte, however, the farewell to the Blues. The Italian coach will certainly rely on 3-4-3, with Willian and Hazard in support of Olivier Giroud, favorite on Morata. No turn-over for Jurgen Klopp despite the efforts of Rome: in the field the magnificent trident formed by Salah, Manè and Firmino, while Emre Can and Oxlade-Chamberlain will be the big absentees.
Only 6 points separate Chelsea and Liverpool, but the latter has one more game.
In 7 of the 8 big-match home games between the league and the Champions League the Londoners have conceded goals. Exception: 1-0 of the first leg with Manchester United.
With 124 seasonal goals the Reds have the second attack of the Premier League and the first of the Champions League.
The last 7 Premier matches between Chelsea and Liverpool ended with goals from both teams.
Mohammed Salah has scored 31 goals in the league and is currently second in the Golden Boot after Messi.
Liverpool have shown to be superior so far but the Champions takes a lot of energy and in London Chelsea is a tough opponent. The goal however Klopp’s team has it in the blood, so even at “Stamford Bridge” we could see real English football, that is a battle to the sound of goals.
