Chelsea vs Liverpool >> 25/11/2017 – in Nigeria0
I enjoyed a decent round of predictions in Gameweek 23, properly predicting the outcome of five Premier League matches with two exact results. I predicted wins for Burnley and Manchester City, as well as 3 draws amongst Middlesbrough and West Brom, Liverpool and Chelsea and Everton and Stoke. My two best scores have been Boro 1-1 West Brom and the very same scoreline in the Liverpool – Chelsea counter. I am hoping for an additional decent round of predictions this weekend. It really is 1st versus third in Saturday’s early kick-off. Chelsea have picked up seven points from their last attainable nine considering that losing to Tottenham, the most current of which came in their 1-1 draw at Liverpool on Tuesday. Arsenal suffered a shock two-1 dwelling defeat to Watford, also on Tuesday evening, ending a run of five league matches without having defeat.
Chelsea had been strong at Anfield on Tuesday and took the lead by way of David Luiz’s excellent totally free-kick. Chelsea are so great once they have a purpose lead and it was really hard to see Liverpool scoring but Gini Wijnaldum equalised for the Reds. Arsenal endured a dreadful opening thirteen minutes against Watford and identified themselves two goals down at the Emirates. Alex Iwobi halved the deficit in the second period, but Watford clung on to leave with the three points and leave Arsene Wenger’s males nine points adrift of Saturday’s opponents Chelsea. Arsenal genuinely need to have a outcome right here and it should be an entertaining game at Stamford Bridge. Saying that, Chelsea’s game management is so excellent, and I believe they’ll put themselves at a massive benefit for the title with a comfy victory.
Sam Allardyce finally earned a initial win as Palace boss with an impressive two- victory at Bournemouth on Tuesday. Sunderland earned a excellent point at house to Spurs in a – draw at the Stadium of Light. The Black Cats ended a run of two straight defeats with a dogged – draw against Spurs. This is a massive six-pointer at Selhurst Park. Each sides are scrapping for survival and defeat would be a real blow to either side. Sadly for David Moyes, I feel his troops will be travelling back to Wearside empty-handed on Saturday evening. Everton are in fine form, unbeaten in six in the Premier League following a 1-1 draw at Stoke on Wednesday evening. Bournemouth lost 2- at home to Palace on Tuesday and are now 4 matches with out a win.
The Toffees identified themselves a goal down following just seven minutes at the Bet365 Stadium, but fought back nicely and forced an personal-goal from Ryan Shawcross. A point at Stoke is a fantastic result for any group, and Everton are starting to put some stress on the best six – Ronald Koeman’s guys have just 5 points fewer than Manchester United. Eddie Howe will be extremely disappointed with the Cherries’ functionality at property to Crystal Palace on Wednesday. His group failed to score in a Premier League fixture for the first time since Boxing Day, and he will be devastated to have observed Callum Wilson endure one more season-ending injury this week. This is not an easy game for Everton, but they are a solid outfit at residence and come across themselves in brilliant form. Bournemouth have had a tough final four games, and I feel they will lose once again at Goodison Park.

Hull’s resurgence beneath Marco Silva continued with an excellent – draw at Old Trafford on Wednesday. Liverpool place in a genuinely good performance against league leaders Chelsea on Tuesday evening, but ended January winless in the league following the 1-1 draw. The Tigers defended like lions against Manchester United, keeping out the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to earn a mightily impressive point. I’ve been genuinely impressed with Hull beneath their new boss, and felt they had been unlucky to exit the EFL Cup final week against the Red Devils. Simon Mignolet was Liverpool’s 1st half-villain against Chelsea, falling asleep entirely and permitting David Luiz the freedom of his net from a Blues free of charge-kick. Nevertheless, Mignolet redeemed himself entirely in the second half following Wijnaldum’s equaliser for Liverpool, diving spectacularly to his ideal to maintain out Diego Costa’s penalty.
It was a fantastic point for Liverpool against what looks to be the clear favourites for the title, but Jurgen Klopp could feel his side could have truly won the game on the night. This should be a good game at the KCOM Stadium. Hull have turned a corner under Silva, while Liverpool have Sadio Mane back and put in a truly very good overall performance against Chelsea. It wouldn’t surprise me if this was a draw, but I just fancy Liverpool to nick it here. Both of these sides suffered disappointing defeats in Gameweek 23. Southampton lost two-1 at Swansea on Tuesday, while West Ham had been battered four- at household to Manchester City on Wednesday. Southampton are on the slide in the league despite progressing to the EFL Cup final last week.
Claude Puel’s guys have lost five of their final six Premier League matches just after defeat at Swansea on Tuesday, although Shane Long kept up his excellent recent type with a different objective at the Liberty Stadium. West Ham have been ripped apart by Manchester City, Jose Fonte enduring a horrible debut at the heart of the Hammers’ defence. The Portuguese international conceded a penalty in that a single, and it will be intriguing to see the welcome he receives on his return to St Mary’s on Saturday. Neither side is in inspiring form of late, and it’s 12th versus 11th on Saturday. It ought to be a close a single, and I believe we’ll see a draw here. Watford ended a run of seven league games with out a victory with a magnificent two-1 win at Arsenal in midweek.
Burnley continued their fine home kind with a 1- win more than champions Leicester. Former Spurs man Younes Kaboul set Watford on their to victory at the Emirates, with influential skipper Troy Deeney doubling the lead shortly immediately after. Walter Mazzarri’s males defended effectively from then on, and managed to see out the game to earn one particular of the upsets of 2017 so far. Burnley left it late against Leicester, Sam Vokes’ winner coming with just three minutes left on the clock. The Clarets never cease until the final whistle, and I’ve been so impressed with Sean Dyche and his group in their very first season back in England’s top flight.
Burnley are nonetheless without having a win away from home, even though, and Vicarage Road is not an uncomplicated spot to play football. The Hornets will be buoyed following their accomplishment at Arsenal, so I’m going for a narrow residence win here. West Brom stay 8th in the league right after their 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough on Tuesday. Stoke’s match with Everton on Wednesday saw the identical scoreline, leaving the Potters just a location and 4 points behind Saturday’s opponents. The Baggies located themselves in front early at the Riverside on Tuesday, James Morrison netting his fourth objective of the season following just six minutes.
