Premier League Betting: Liverpool v Chelsea Top 10 Vital Statistics


10) Just three days after beating Liverpool 2-1 to lift the FA Cup, Chelsea head to Anfield in their last Premier League away game of the season. The Blues are 3.00 to win again.

9) The final was the first time Chelsea had beaten their opponents in five games, stretching back to a 2-0 away victory in May 2010. Victory that day gave the Blues a one-point lead at the top of the table, with goals from Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard. Chelsea are 16.00 to repeat the scoreline.

8) Liverpool can move to up eighth position with a win at Anfield. Their heaviest Premier League home defeat over Chelsea came in September 1996: a 5-1 victory helped by winger Patrick Berger’s brace. The Reds’ current left-winger, Stewart Downing, is priced at 5.25 to score at any time.

7) Kenny Dalglish’s side had 18 attempts on goal in the final on Saturday, with 10 on target but just one scored. They have scored just 20 goals from 18 league games at Anfield this season, yet are 3.60 to score in both halves.

6) Andy Carroll has scored three goals in his last five outings in a red shirt, a run started by an injury time diving header against Blackburn in April. Carroll can be backed at 8.00 to score another with his head.

5) Three players were booked in the Cup final, yet none are favourites to be shown a card on Tuesday. Both Chelsea’s David Luiz and Ramires are at 3.00 to see yellow.

4) Before the Cup final, Liverpool had won the last four meetings between the two sides, conceding just one goal. The Reds are priced at 4.50 to win without conceding any on Tuesday evening.

3) The corner count at the Cup final was 7-1 in Liverpool’s favour. The Reds are 1.95 to record the same figure or more again, with Chelsea at 1.65 for +4.5 corners.

2) Chelsea have gone on to win 15 of 22 competitive matches this season where they have scored first. Meanwhile, Liverpool have lost 11 of 15 games where they have conceded first. A price of 12.00 can be backed for the home side to win after going a goal behind.

1) Drogba and Luis Suarez are tied favourites at 7.00 to score first, while Fernando Torres and Carroll are joint second favourites at 7.50.
