Betting Tip: @ Chelsea to win @ 23/10 with bet365

It’s fifth against third on Saturday evening, with this clash at Anfield look less of a title decider and more a match which might determine which team qualifies for the Champions League come the end of the season.

Liverpool are unbeaten at home this term and that explains why they are warm favourites with Unibet free bets, although Jurgen Klopp’s side haven’t had the most difficult opponents, with Burnley and Manchester United claiming a point.

The Reds did beat Arsenal 4-0 although the Gunners simply weren’t at the races in that game and played into Liverpool’s hands with some sloppy errors and then needed to come out and play themselves back into the game.

Make no bones about it, the Merseyside team are pretty special going forward, with ex-Chelsea man Mohamed Salah shining in virtually every match this season, while Mane, Coutinho and Firmino make them an attractive proposition.

However, Antonio Conte will be aware of the threat posed by their opponents and Chelsea have some attacking weaponry of their own. What is equally important is that N’Golo Kante is back to full fitness and that means they have arguably the best defensive midfield in the Premier League.

Eden Hazard has had a few injury problems this season although the Belgian is now producing fine performances on a regular basis and his understanding with Alvaro Morata should go a long way in this game.

Conte will persist with three central defenders and it was a formation which worked a treat last season where the Blues were able to soak up Liverpool pressure and sting on the counter-attack.

Liverpool struggle when they aren’t afforded space to exploit teams with their pace and there will be plenty of times that Fabregas and Kante are covering the defence and staying compact against a team looking to move the ball quickly.
