A loss for Chelsea this weekend would finish any slim hopes that the Blues may have in catching Tottenham for the last Champions League spot, particularly as Spurs have won just one of their last three Premier League matches.

A patchy form at home has been Chelsea’s downfall this season; they have accumulated the third best away record but just the sixth best home record in the league.

They have won just two of their last six at Stamford Bridge, with both victories coming against Crystal Palace and rock-bottom West Brom.

For Liverpool, there is very little to play for as a team in the Premier League, as all focus will be on their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday.

A 0-0 draw against Stoke at the weekend was an example of the Premier League fixtures holding much less bite in comparison to their 5-2 win against Roma. They did however have an expected goals total of 2.12 to Stoke’s 0.78, so it may have been a different story had their strikers finished their chances.

Jurgen Klopp rarely makes wholesale changes to his starting lineup and with Mohammed Salah chasing the Premier League and European Golden Boot, it would be a surprise to see him rested. Klopp did start Alexander-Arnold in a more forward role against Stoke, however, so some changes would be likely.

Chelsea vs. Liverpool betting: Where is the value?

Whilst Liverpool are most certainly in better form and have had a better season than Chelsea, Sunday’s game looks to depend on what Liverpool turns up at Stamford Bridge.

If it is the free-flowing Liverpool we have come all too accustomed with this season, then their odds of 3.540* to take all three points may offer value.

However, there are more important games in Liverpool’s calendar and therefore this tie may be overlooked. If you believe this to be the case, then a bet on the +0.75 handicap on Liverpool at 1.602* will help to cover the draw.

Whilst Liverpool have been in incredible scoring form this season, this is a game that could go either way and their forward options were not the strikers we have seen recently against Stoke. Under 2.5 goals at 2.110* could be the smart bet.
