Marquee Match of the Week
Liverpool host Chelsea in an all-important match for both the teams. Chelsea are third in the points table, having registered 25 points so far. Liverpool are fifth, with 22 points. This is a great chance for Liverpool to get level with Chelsea. Liverpool are unbeaten against Chelsea in the last seven outings. However, five of these matches ended in draws. Both the Liverpool wins came away from home as well. Curiously, the last time Liverpool defeated Chelsea at Anfield was in 2012. Chelsea have won twice at Anfield after that defeat, which included that heart-breaking loss in April 2014 that derailed Liverpool’s title push.
So stats do not give away any clear-cut indication for online betting. Neither does the recent form. Liverpool have won all their last three EPL matches, while Chelsea have won all their last four EPL matches. Liverpool seem to have the better attack, while Chelsea seem to have the better defence. In situations such as this, the teams with better defence either win or get away with a draw.
Other Interesting Fixtures
Arsenal travel to Burnley on this weekend. Arsenal will be high on confidence after their victory in the North London derby. But Burnley too will be equally confident, after having notched up three straight wins. Burnley’s attack has shown bite and purpose all through the season. And they defend tirelessly. Arsenal have a dazzling array of attackers. But their defence may not be able to contain Burnley’s attack.
Swansea City vs Bournemouth has attractive odds for all three results. Swansea have been struggling, while Bournemouth are engineering a recent resurgence. Both the teams have been utterly unpredictable right through the season. Still, it is hard to see Swansea winning this.
