Liverpool vs Chelsea
England – Premier League
Date: Thursday, 4 March 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
The Blues have returned to form under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel, and are on an inspiring unbeaten run. As of now, they are placed fifth in the table, and their target will surely be a top-four finish.
They also do have an opportunity to extend their lead this match-day, as they are pitted against the sixth-placed Reds, who arguably are going through their worst phase in the past two decades.
In fact, Jurgen Klopp’s men were lucky to have gotten a break, as they were matched up against the dead-last placed Sheffield United. If not, they would have still been on a worrying and embarrassing winless streak.
Moreover, Anfield used to be their fortress once, and now they are on a run of six winless appearances here. Even more worrisome is that they are on a four-game losing run here.
By the looks of things, expect Chelsea to have the upper hand this Thursday.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Prediction
The Reds recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Sheffield United. In the meantime, Tuchel’s men were held to a goalless draw the past game week, by Manchester United.
Going on, Klopp’s men had lost six of their former ten match-ups, and were winless in ten of their past fifteen overall games. They are also on a four-game losing run at home, and are on a six-fixture winless run here.
Note that they have scored a total of just one goal here from their preceding five appearances, and had conceded six goals from the last two home matches.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a ten-game unbeaten streak, and had won six of their former eight matches. They have conceded a total of just two goals from their last nine fixtures, and had won four of their past five road trips.
Considering these stats, expect Chelsea to have the edge this Thursday at Anfield
