Top Premier League Clash: Chelsea vs. LiverpoolPublished October 31, 2015 by Florin P
Chelsea seeks redemption at Stamford Bridge against Liverpool (12:45 p.m UK Time)
Chelsea is running out of time and faces crushing pressure and they’ve got just 11 points in 10 games and are three places above the relegation line. They lost once again against West Ham and with one victory in more than a month, they are in real danger of missing all objectives for this season.
Mourinho's Position in Jeopardy
The Portuguese manager could afford to be arrogant and patronize everyone as long as he met and exceeded expectations. Now that the ship is hit from all their direction and in real danger of sinking, his position is in danger and something needs to be done quickly. Losing to Liverpool could be the stroke that broke the camel’s back and this is the kind of outcome that Chelsea can’t afford this weekend.
Courtois is still injured and Chelsea players are picking up red cards at an alarming rate, adding insult to injury. The good news is that the offensive is intact and the midfield is also showing significant signs of improvement, so the home side could mount successful attacks.
Back-To-Back Draws for Liverpool
The Reds haven’t lost in nine consecutive games but they won just twice over the span, with seven matches ending undecided. Their winless streak now features five games and the low scoring performance is starting to annoy the fans who expect more from their team. Injuries have played a part in this lack of success, with key midfielders and strikers being still injured.
Under normal circumstances Liverpool would be expected to play offensive football, especially now when they have Klopp at the helm. Having said this, it would be a mistake to go against the recent results and with Chelsea struggling heavily it makes perfect sense to take the generous even odds offered by bet365 Sports and bet on Liverpool not to lose at Stamford Bridge.
