Big game tonight at Anfield where troubled Liverpool hosts Chelsea who are on fire. IMO for this match odds should have been closer when we consider the current situation and form of both teams. Maybe the reason behind such odds is the news that Alisson, Fabinho and Jota will be in squad tonight. Except from Alisson, both Fabinho and Jota come from long injuries and I don’t believe they will be 100% fit, especially Jota who still is not sure to make squad for tonight. 


As we all know Liverpool lately has been in a little crises and are struggling a lot in the league. Many injuries and fatigue have done their job. They have suffered a lot since the beginning of this year having gone from top of the table and title contender to as low as sixth placed. 

Their title hopes dead already and finishing in top four should be their priority now. After four consecutive defeats in the league Liverpool finally managed to win against the worst team of the league Sheffield, but tonight they will face totally different opponent. 


Chelsea on the other hand are in a quite different position than Liverpool. Tuchel has been a great replacement at the helm and now Chelsea is on a great run in the league and even in Champions League where they managed to win against Atletico. 


Their defense which was the worst part during Lampard have improved a lot and in the last nine matches that Tuchel is in charge has conceded only two goals. The attack is struggling a bit with only ten goals in nine matches, but that has been due to the tactic and stability that Tuchel has given to the team. Chelsea now is more pragmatic team. 

?

For this game Liverpool still with the same injured players except for Fabino and Jota, while Chelsea still without Silva and Abraham, but I rate them no big problem for Chelsea. So with a full team Chelsea has another advantage tonight. 

 

To sum up, both teams are in desperate need of a win in their battle for a top four placement. I see this as a closely contested game, but I think that Chelsea are in a better form and come to this match in excellent mood and with the recent poor form of Liverpool I believe that they have every possibility to take at least a point tonight. Although the +0.5 pays very good, I will take the +0.25 line because I feel that Chelsea could get something more than a point tonight.
