Liverpool v Chelsea: Tense clash on Merseyside as Reds look to bounce back from Champions League disappointment

With recent meetings between the Reds and Conte's men having proved consistently tight affairs, Al Hain-Cole does not expect too many goals at Anfield

A heavyweight clash takes place in the Premier League on Saturday as Chelsea travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool.
 
Currently enjoying a three-match winning streak in the league, Jurgen Klopp's men are on offer at 23/20 (2.15) with dabblebet to move level on points with their third-place opponents by coming out on top.
 
However, the Blues have not lost in any of their last six visits to this ground, and can be backed at 12/5 (3.40) to come away with all three points in this one.

Each of the last three encounters between the sides on Merseyside have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 5/2 (3.50) available on them cancelling each other out once again here.
 
Still sore from letting a three-goal half-time lead slip to draw 3-3 away to Sevilla in midweek, the Reds will be determined to avoid another defensive collapse in front of their own fans.
 
In fact, the hosts have displayed little of their notoriously brittle backline at Anfield, where they have conceded just a single goal in their last eight Premier League fixtures.

Considering Antonio Conte’s side have let in only four goals and kept five clean sheets in their previous eight league matches on the road themselves, another six-goal thriller seems unlikely in this clash.
 
Indeed, recent encounters between these sides have proved consistently tight affairs, with five of the last seven producing no more than two goals; that trend has been particularly pronounced on Merseyside, where there have been under 2.5 goals in each of the previous three meetings.
 
All in all, odds of 21/20 (2.05) certainly seem to be where the smart money lies on no more than two goals being scored for Chelsea’s fourth consecutive trip to Liverpool, as well as the sixth encounter in eight in general.
