Chelsea vs Liverpool Betting Odds, Predictions & Winning Tips (English Premier League 2022/23, April 4)
Chelsea meets Liverpool for the second time in the English Premier League this season, and this time with a new interim manager. The Blues parted ways with Graham Potter after he failed to deliver the goods for the London-based team. Jurgen Klopp is under pressure at Liverpool, but his job doesn’t seem to be in danger for now; however, both teams are in desperate need of a win in this game.
Chelsea vs Liverpool (2022/23 English Premier League) Key Info
Chelsea’s defeat to Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge last weekend saw them slip into the bottom half of the table, and that led to the sacking of Graham Potter. The Blues are 12 points away from the top four, and they need a quick response if they are to participate in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Liverpool has had their fair share of troubles this season, and their loss against Manchester City at the Etihad wasn’t surprising. The Reds are four points ahead of Chelsea in the league, having played one game less. Liverpool can get closer to the top four if they manage to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, a feat they haven’t achieved since 2020.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Match Preview and Statistics
Chelsea vs Liverpool Odds
The odds on this game are quite similar to the first leg earlier this season. Chelsea has the home advantage and is slightly priced as the favorites to win at 2.50 (6/4), while a bet on Liverpool to win is not far off at 2.80 (9/5). A draw has been a frequent outcome in the last few meetings between these two teams, and the bookmakers are offering the highest value at 3.40 (12/5).
Chelsea’s Premier League chase is practically over, as they cannot win the league mathematically. However, they are still in the UEFA Champions League with a quarterfinal tie against Real Madrid coming up this month. The Pensioners are playing under a new manager and would like to get the best possible finish in the league, but they need to improve, especially in attack. A new manager bounce might be extra motivation for the Blues against Liverpool.
Liverpool is currently two spots ahead of Chelsea in the league, and like the Blues, there is little to no hope of winning the league this year. The Reds are already out of the UEFA Champions League and domestic cups, so they have just the top-four finish as their priority this season. Liverpool has most of their players returning from injuries, and Jürgen Klopp will be eyeing all three points when he leads his team to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Predictions
Total Goals – Under 3.5 @ 1.44 (4/9)
Chelsea and Liverpool are experiencing one of their lowest-scoring seasons ever, and that is mainly due to a drop in the quality of the attack. The Blues have managed just 29 goals in 28 league games and are averaging just over a goal per game. Only three out of Chelsea’s last 20 games have produced goals past the three-goal mark, and they’re likely to produce another low-scoring encounter alongside Liverpool.
Things haven’t been rosy for Liverpool in attack, even after signing young blood in the face of Nunez and Gakpo. The Reds have managed just one goal in their last three games and usually struggle to score on the road, but the English football bookies are offering good odds for the ‘total under’ wager. The last three meetings between Chelsea and Liverpool have not produced a goal, and with both teams looking very blunt in attack, you should bet on a low-scoring game with three goals or less.
Mohamed Salah to Score Anytime @ 3.20 (11/5)
Liverpool’s number 11 has been one of the few bright spots in the team, and he has been quite productive despite Liverpool’s failures. Mohamed Salah has scored in his last three games; two in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers and his last against Manchester City at the Etihad. The Egyptian forward has a good record against the big six in the English Premier League, and he should get at least a goal against his former team. Backing Mohamed Salah to score anytime is a valuable option to bet on.
Chelsea to Win or Draw @ 1.50 (1/2)
Liverpool’s away troubles don’t look like they are ending anytime soon. They have won just three games away from home this season – the third-lowest away win tally in the English Premier League. Chelsea is expected to play with better intensity, and they can pull off the new manager bounce against Liverpool. Both teams already faced off at Anfield this year, and Liverpool was lucky to get away with a draw in a game they created very little. Playing under a new manager at home, Chelsea’s odds of winning this is enticing, but backing the Blues to avoid defeat is a great option in this game.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Team News
Chelsea doesn’t have any new faces on the sidelines. Thiago Silva and Wesley Fofana are injured, and the Blues have to continue using their makeshift backline. N’Golo Kante made a key return for Chelsea with his first minutes this year against Aston Villa. He is expected to start against Liverpool, and this is a huge boost for the Blues.
Jurgen Klopp has his starters available for this game, and the only big exceptions are Thiago Alcantara and Luis Diaz. Darwin Nunez started on the bench against Manchester City in the previous game, and he is well-rested for the trip to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.
