Two potential title rivals meet in the late Premier League kick off on Saturday as Liverpool entertain Chelsea at Anfield.
Based on some selections from our dedicated Match Predictions section, we’ve put together a huge bet builder for the standout fixture in England’s top flight on Saturday that pays out at 136/1.
136/1 Liverpool vs Chelsea Bet Builder
Chelsea double chance (win or draw)
Anfield is always a tough hunting ground for visiting teams, but Chelsea may well be able to get a result this weekend.
Since Thomas Tuchel took charge at Stamford Bridge the Blues have lost just three of their Premier League games and he has a formidable record against Chelsea’s ‘Big Six’ rivals – with six wins in eight games so far.
Both teams to score
Both Liverpool and Chelsea are yet to concede in the Premier League this season, but they have also both scored in each of their two games so far. Something has to give on Saturday and given the attacking talent both teams have to call on there is a good chance we’ll see two perfect defensive records ended at Anfield.
Over 10.5 Corners
There have been at least 11 corners in both of Liverpool’s games so far, while one of Chelsea’s games has produced over 10.5 corners. At odds against, this selection adds further value to this bet builder and looks to have a reasonable chance.
Marcos Alonso anytime goalscorer
You need at least one bold selection to really boost a bet builder and in this case we’ve opted for an anytime effort from Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso.
The Spaniard has one goal in two league games this season and getting wing-backs into shooting positions is part of Tuchel’s game plan. Wing-backs have scored in four of Chelsea’s last six league games, with Alonso scoring twice.
Joel Matip to be booked
The to be booked markets also offer big prices and Liverpool defender Joel Matip is our pick here. The Cameroonian only managed 10 Premier League appearances in an injury hit campaign last term but still picked up two yellow cards.
