Chelsea vs Liverpool Prediction
Chelsea Out to Avenge League Cup Final Defeat by Liverpool
In the final of the League Cup at the end of February, Chelsea and Liverpool played for 120 minutes without either team finding the back of the net. However, the scoreline of 0-0 was not a true reflection of the match.
There were four goals that the linesmen and the video assistant referee ruled out. Although both sides had many other opportunities to score, a combination good goalkeeping and wayward finishing prevented any breakthrough.
In the end Kepa Arrizabalaga won the match. After 21 successful spot-kicks in a row, the Chelsea goalkeeper blazed his penalty high over the bar to give the trophy to Liverpool. Understandably, the Blues felt a bit disappointed. The Reds had matched the Blues all the way. They went toe-to-toe with them. Thomas Tuchel will and his team are determined to rectify that loss when they go back to Wembley on Saturday.
Chelsea has had a difficult few months but there is hope. The sudden, dramatic departure of Roman Abramovich must have affected the on-field performance. Rumours circulated that Chelsea might be expelled from the Premier League or go bankrupt.
However Todd Boehly’s consortium appears to be close to completing the takeover. A deal is expected in place by the end the month. The pitch has also been picked up by
Things. Although Chelsea had been struggling of late, there were concerns they might be pulled back in the race to the top 4. However, Wednesday’s comfortable victory over Leeds United meant that the Blues almost certain will be playing Champions League soccer next season. They will be able to concentrate their attention entirely on the FA Cup final.
Liverpool’s Title Hopes Fade but Other Silverware up for Grabs
Whereas this competition is the only meaningful thing Chelsea have to play for, Liverpool are still hunting silverware on three fronts. Their chances of winning the Premier League title, however, are diminishing.
Manchester City has taken the initiative after last weekend’s draw with Tottenham. This result is not a poor one in isolation. With two remaining games for Liverpool, the champions will have six points to go at the top of the standings if they beat West Ham.
Winning the title is now extremely challenging. Liverpool is in no position to decide their fate. Jurgen Klopp’s team still has a lot to lose. While the League Cup trophy has been placed in its cabinet, the FA Cup as well as the Champions League may follow.
Balancing the four competitions can be difficult, but Liverpool has made it seem easy this season. The Reds have won 25 of their 30 games in all competitions since a 2-2 draw with Chelsea at the beginning of January. Three of the five matches that they didn’t win were irrelevant, as Liverpool won on aggregate.
Their 2-1 win over Aston Villa was significant. It kept Manchester City at the top of the title race. It showed Liverpool’s ability to rebound from relative hardship after the slight defeat against Tottenham. Klopp’s team will be arriving at Wembley with confidence and conviction.
Chelsea Can Beat Liverpool, but Expect a Close Match
All three matches between the teams this season ended in a tie. In addition to the scoreless tie at Wembley, Liverpool and Chelsea drew 1-1 at Anfield. The match at Stamford Bridge was 2-2.
Considering all three matches, Chelsea are probably the superior team, even though they lost by a narrow margin in the head-to-head duel. But the Premier League table does not lie: Liverpool have amassed 16 more points than Chelsea, whom they have scored more goals than and conceded fewer.
Liverpool are in even better shape. Although Chelsea did a great job against Leeds, their opponent was not too hard for them. In fact, Tuchel’s team has lost five of the eight Premier League games they have played. They have suffered defeats at the hands of Brentford and Everton in recent weeks, as well as being frustrated by Wolves’ poor Manchester United team.
Some will be tempted by the attractive odds available on a draw, but note that only two of the last 14 FA Cup finals have gone to extra time. This is likely to be a tight game between a pair of excellent teams, but we would recommend backing Liverpool to triumph in 90 minutes. Bet on FA Cup here!
