Liverpool Vs Chelsea: Prediction
Liverpool is perceivably strong defensively, especially with the return of the goalkeeper Alisson and Fabinho. Though they have not looked as strong as they should this season, they have a front three capable of creating trouble for the Chelsea side.
As Chelsea players are still adapting to Thomas Tuchel’s reign, it is difficult to predict the outcome. For Chelsea too, Defense has improved but they will need to find a way to score more consistently.
Despite no crowds, the match between Liverpool and Chelsea is expected to be a thriller. With an evenly contested match, there will be lots of betting on football for the match between Liverpool and Chelsea.
Liverpool 0- 0 Chelsea
