Liverpool host Chelsea tonight hoping to add to their back-to-back wins against Villarreal and Watford.
However, fans of the Reds should prepare themselves for a difficult evening, with the upcoming opponents regularly enjoying the trip to Anfield.
The Blues are undefeated in their last four visits across all competitions to the famous ground, winning half of those outings and can be backed at 16/5 to do so again.
Indeed, the last time the Merseysiders hosted the west Londoners in the league saw Jose Mourinho’s men come from behind to take a 2-1 victory.
Jurgen Klopp’s side also won’t be helped this time around by their Europa League exploits causing a substantial amount of fixture congestion.
The Capital One Cup finalists haven’t had more than five days rest between a fixture since April and it looks as if this is now starting to have a detrimental impact on them.
For example, they were winless in their two domestic outings that directly preceded their Europa League semi-final matches, drawing with Newcastle and losing to Swansea City.
Both of these clubs are in the bottom half of the table and Chelsea will present more of a challenge.
The now-former champions have won four of their last six on the road in the Premier League and going to a stadium they flourish in will help them improve on this record.
Eden Hazard has scored three times in as many matches and this return to form shouldn’t be ignored.
Two of those strikes ended up being the final goal in the game and having the Belgian do this again is priced at 9/1, while seeing him find the net at any time comes in at 11/4.
However, the Reds have managed to register at least once in their last seven Anfield outings, so backing both teams to score and Chelsea to win at 6/1 would make sense.
