What Trueform says for Chelsea vs Liverpool
Liverpool achieved a huge Trueform rating for their recent Champions League win over Roma at Anfield but are very evenly matched with Chelsea judged on recent Premier League form.
The Blues have kept alive their slim top-four hopes with a hat-trick of victories in this competition, as well as beating Southampton to reach the FA Cup final.
With the Reds having drawn three of their last four domestic fixtures, 5/2 for another stalemate is a value pick for our Chelsea vs Liverpool betting predictions.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea closed to within six points of Liverpool when obliging 1-0 at Swansea and they have a game in hand.
Liberty Stadium goalscorer Cesc Fabregas said: “We have been winning games, not comfortably, and that is the most important thing.
“Sometimes when you are in a dip of form and you are struggling to get points, to win whatever it takes is always positive.
“I think we’ve been doing well that way, because every team we play is fighting for something.
“We have had to dig in at certain moments and we are ready to do that.”
However, an inferior goal difference means they still face an uphill battle to overhaul the Reds as they seek to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool must recover from a tiring midweek trip to Italy, when hanging on for a 7-6 aggregate win over Roma, despite a chaotic 4-2 defeat in the Stadio Olimpico.
However, Jurgen Klopp is confident his players can cope with the emotional effects of qualifying for the Champions League final.
“I have not a little bit of doubt about the mindset of my boys,” he said.
“It’s not a question of ‘are we recovered?’ – we have to be recovered.
“We have times in between the games for the boys to switch off and it is only important we switch on at the right moment and everything can be fine.”
Klopp knows that his team will be well suited by sharing the spoils and the Reds do have a superb record at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have won this corresponding fixture just once in the last seven Premier League seasons.
The visitors often start fast in big matches, so let’s add 13/1 for the Reds to be leading at half-time and then the result to be a draw to our Chelsea vs Liverpool betting tips.
