Liverpool vs Chelsea Line Up * 25/11/2017 – in Nigeria0
There is a full Gameweek in the Premier League this week, spread across Tuesday and Wednesday. I appropriately predicted the outcome of four league matches final week, with a single fantastic score. I referred to as wins for Liverpool, Hull and Watford as well as a draw among Arsenal and Manchester City. My best score was Hull’s two-1 dwelling victory more than West Ham. Burnley lost two- at property to Tottenham on Saturday and Stoke lost by the exact same score at Leicester. Burnley’s defeat by Spurs leaves them without a win in seven in the Premier League, losing four and drawing 3. They have not won considering the fact that January and may well be seeking over their shoulders as they are now just 5 points above the bottom 3.
Stoke lost 2- at reigning champions Leicester, their second straight league defeat. The game at Burnley comes specifically a month right after their final Premier League win at dwelling to Middlesbrough, and Mark Hughes will be desperate for three points. These are two solid sides and it should be a close a single at Turf Moor. Burnley are robust at house, but I fancy Stoke to leave with a point. Leicester beat Stoke two- at house at the weekend, whilst Sunderland had been 1- losers at Watford. Craig Shakespeare maintained his one hundred% winning record in the Premier League as Leicester won their fourth straight league match at house to Stoke thanks to ambitions from Wilfred Ndidi and Jamie Vardy.
Sunderland have lost four of their final five just after losing at Watford and stay bottom of the Premier League. They are a worrying eight points adrift of 17th-placed Swansea, but do have a game in hand. Sunderland require to begin winning games, but I can’t see them starting at the King Energy. Leicester have been excellent under Shakespeare, and I see him producing it five league wins from five. Miguel Britos was the goalscorer as Watford ended a run of four league matches devoid of a victory. The Hornets remain 12th in the table. West Brom had been generally organised and disciplined as they frustrated Manchester United, and former Red Devil Darren Fletcher could have won it for the Baggies, his work hitting the bar.
- Arsenal vs Leicester City
- Crystal Palace vs Leicester City
- Chelsea have kept just a single clean sheet in their last 11 Premier League games against Liverpool
- West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur
Tony Pulis will be a proud manager immediately after his side remain 8th and unbeaten in their last two games, against Arsenal and United. I never often go against West Brom but soon after such a huge work in Manchester I can see them losing right here. Watford are decent at dwelling and will be confident of generating it back-to-back wins at Vicarage Road. Manchester United have been frustrated in that – property draw with WBA, while Everton lost the Merseyside Derby 3-1 at Anfield. United dominated possession and developed far a lot more probabilities than West Brom but Jose Mourinho’s group failed to convert their probabilities.
They had been without the need of Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Saturday but he will be back for this clash. Everton have been comfortably beaten at Liverpool in a feisty clash of Red vs Blue. Everton struggle away to the big boys, which is why I am backing United here. Ibrahimovic is back, and I fancy him against a weakened Everton backline. Arsenal drew two-2 with Manchester City at the Emirates on Sunday. West Ham threw away a 1- lead as they lost 2-1 at Hull. Arsene Wenger will be content with a point soon after his side came from behind twice against City. Goals from Theo Walcott and Shkodran Mustafi earned the Gunners a point that they deserved. Andy Carroll scored his 50th Premier League objective on Saturday, but it wasn’t sufficient for West Ham who let Hull in twice in the second half.
The Hammers have now lost four in a row and are without a win in six. Arsenal haven’t won in 3 but I see them returning to winning approaches on Wednesday. They should really be as well very good for an out-of-sorts West Ham United. Hull battled back at the KCOM to beat West Ham 2-1. Middlesbrough drew – at Swansea in Sunday’s early game. Two of Hull’s defenders had been unlikely goalscorers as the Tigers came from behind to beat WHU. Andrew Robertson and Andrea Ranocchia scored in the second-half as Hull bounced back from a four- drubbing at Everton. Middlesbrough picked up their first point below Steve Agnew in a drab – draw at the Liberty. They defended well in the second-half as the hosts applied some pressure, and should have actually left with all 3 points immediately after Rudy Gestede fluffed a excellent headed opportunity.
Boro should really be bolstered following a decent overall performance at Swansea and they will be feeling optimistic ahead of this relegation six-pointer. I consider Middlesbrough will approach this in the very same way as their game at Swansea, and earn a point with a repeat result. Southampton drew – at home to Bournemouth in Saturday’s late kick-off. Crystal Palace stunned Chelsea, earning a outstanding 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge. Claude Puel will be pleased with a point immediately after Bournemouth missed a penalty in the 77th-minute of the game. Southampton are winless in their last two and face one of the league’s in-form sides on Wednesday.
Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke scored the ambitions that meant Chelsea lost for just the fourth time in the league this season. They came from a goal down, too, as they became the 1st team to win at Stamford Bridge since Liverpool in September. Palace have won 4 in a row and are in brilliant kind under Sam Allardyce. Southampton have to have a win, but I consider they will be held to a draw right here. Swansea drew – at dwelling to Middlesbrough in Sunday’s early kick-off. Tottenham earned a solid 2- win at Burnley. Swansea were the much better team against Boro but struggled devoid of Fernando Llorente up front. Gylfi Sigurdsson went close on a couple of occasion but the visitors defended properly and a draw was in all probability a fair reflection. Ambitions from Eric Dier and Son Heung-min earned Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs a fourth straight Premier League win.
They stay second in the table, just seven points adrift of Chelsea. Paul Clement has carried out well at Swansea but I think his side will struggle right here. Spurs have looked great even without the need of Harry Kane and really should gather another three points. Chelsea suffered that shock two-1 dwelling loss to Crystal Palace on Saturday, while City drew 2-two at Arsenal on Sunday. Cesc Fabregas gave the Blues the dream start at Stamford Bridge, scoring following just 5 minutes, but Antonio Conte’s side were 2-1 down just six minutes later right after an fantastic Palace fightback. Remarkably, they could see their lead at the major cut to just four points if they lose this 1 and Tottenham win at Swansea. Man City twice took the lead at the Emirates courtesy of Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero, but saw themselves pegged back twice by the Gunners.
Neither group looked prepared to risk losing the game trying to win it, which means a draw was a fair outcome. It will be fascinating to see how Chelsea bounce back from that Palace defeat as it’s so untypical of them (their only preceding league defeats came at the hands of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham). This is City’s second away game to a major London side in just 4 days, but I feel they will pick up another point on their travels. Liverpool beat Everton three-1 in the Merseyside Derby at Anfield. Bournemouth drew – at Southampton on Saturday evening. Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi scored the ambitions as Liverpool ran out comfortable winners against their neighbours. Jurgen Klopp’s side were the much better side throughout and played some fine attacking football which resulted in 3 well-taken targets. Eddie Howe will be a disappointed man soon after his side played effectively at Southampton but failed to leave with three points. Harry Arter skied a late penalty to let Saints off the hook. If Liverpool play like they did on Saturday then they will be fine right here. Sadio Mane will be missing through injury, but there is extra than sufficient top quality in the Reds’ squad to get another three points at Anfield.
Chelsea’s fixture pile up has been nicely documented and this may possibly play into Liverpool’s hands. In addition, Rafael Benitez clearly still has feelings for Liverpool but is focusing on the job in hand. The key thing is to stay in the best 3 and what I want is to win at Liverpool. Benitez may well effectively rest players on his return to Anfield, ahead of the Europa league Semi-Final with Basle. Following all, he isn’t nicknamed the ‘Tinker Man’ for absolutely nothing. Chelsea ought to strike a balance in their attempts to win a European trophy for a consecutive season & their prime objective of a best 4 finish. Ashley Cole is probably to miss the game with a hamstring injury. John Terry may miss out once again regardless of his two objectives on Wednesday. I’d expect Demba Ba to begin ahead of Torres. As for the Liverpool, I’d anticipate Raheem Sterling to start out from the bench and for Jamie Carragher to stay in defence.
