It’s the second Premier League prediction weekend of the season here at BettingTips.net. As always our team of Premier League tips & betting experts have analysed the facts, the figures and more to help bring you the very best betting tips possible for this week’s chosen fixtures.
For our Premier League predictions today, we’re focussing on Sunday’s fixture in west London. Frank Lampard’s newly bolstered Chelsea squad host the champions for their second outing of the season in what looks to be a closely fought encounter, with goals at either end.
Chelsea have been busy over the short summer break, as Roman Abramovich has handed Frank Lampard the checkbook now that their transfer ban has been lifted. Chelsea have made multiple signings in recent weeks, with the most notable being the arrivals of Tmio Werner and kai Havertz from the Bundesliga. Despite the international arrivals, it was academy product Reece James who impressed on Chelsea’s first game of the season. The 20 year old grabbed a long range goal and an assist while playing full back in the 3-1 away win over Brighton on Monday night.
Our Premier League predictions experts couldn’t have foreseen the 7 goal thriller the reds served up against new boys Leeds in their opening game. The champions rolled the clock back to Jurgen Klopp’s early reign as they conceded 3 but still came out on top at the end of a 7 goal thriller. A rare mistake from Virgil Van Dijk was responsible for one of Leeds’ goals. Meanwhile a less rare stellar performance from Mohamed Salah saw him bag a brace in the thrilling win. For this Premier League prediction weekend, we’re expecting goals at either end once again.
The last meeting between these sides was a thrilling 5-3 encounter at Anfield towards the end of last season, which saw Chelsea manager Frank Lampard lose his temper on the touchline. With all of the goal scorers playing that day still at their clubs and likely to feature, our Premier League predictions today suggest there could be another goal fest on Sunday. Prior to the lockdown goalfest in July, Chelsea knocked Liverpool out of the FA cup back in March. In this fixture last year, which took place almost a year ago to the day of this one, Liverpool ran out 2-1 winners.
Below we’ve provided a list containing the last 5 results of the matches between these two teams as well as 3 statistical highlights. We’ve used all of this and more in creating our Premier League tips & predictions for this week.
Having analysed the above information, our Premier League predictions for this week point to a Liverpool win with goals at either end.
Chelsea’s Timo Werner impressed on his debut, but failed to make any real impact against Brighton. Whatsmore, after the game he admitted to struggling against Brighton’s big defenders, so it’s likely he’ll also struggle against Virgil van Dijk on Sunday. Chelsea’s old guard and youth products, however, are likely to impress, and we can very much expect them to score goals on Sunday.
On the other hand, Liverpool will probably have studied their defensive mistakes extensively following the game against Leeds, and they have an extra 2 days to prepare for this game. While we expect it to be close, and for both sides’ attacking talent to impress, the signs point to Liverpool coming out on top. That’s why our betting tip for this game is a Liverpool win with both teams to score. You can place this with Bet365 on odds of 3.75.
