A huge derby at the top of the Premier League is about to take place on January 2nd, when Chelsea will play host to Liverpool in what is expected to be THE match to watch. Chelsea have been struggling to get results lately but still remain at the second spot. Liverpool are one point behind with a match in hand and they are also coming off a couple of bad results.
Chelsea (12-2-6) are coming into this match after a last minute shocker at home against Brighton, where they eventually settled for the 1-1 draw. They had taken the lead at the 28th minute with Lukaku but Welbeck pulled even at the stoppage time. Chelsea might be unbeaten in their last 7, but they have a lot of draws in there. They have been really hard to beat at home so far in the season (5-1-4), losing only to Manchester City, scoring 23 goals and conceding just 8 in the process.
Liverpool (12-2-5) met somewhat of a shocking loss on the road against Leicester a couple of days ago. They were actually the better team in that match, and Mo Salah missed a penalty kick at the 16th minute that would have definitely changed the course of the match. Liverpool conceded the only goal of the match at the 59th minute and didn't create an awful lot of shots against one of the weakest defenses in the league. Liverpool have been solid on the road so far (6-2-2), scoring 28 goals and conceding just 10 in the process.
Free Soccer Pick:
The two teams played for a 1-1 draw at the start of the season, while last season they exchanged away wins. All 3 matches had Under 2.5 Goals and something similar is to be expected here, especially with a congested schedule and all the covid cases. Both teams are missing players and those who are available need to be taken care of in order to avoid any injuries or increased fatigue. Taking the Under here.
