Chelsea have been in impressive form since Thomas Tuchel succeeded Frank Lampard as manager of the club in January. The Blues have yet to lose a game since the German was appointed as their manager. Liverpool have been in poor form since the start of the year and though they did win their last game, it was against the worst team in the league. Liverpool also have defensive frailties which Chelsea will be aiming to exploit. However, both teams are not in the best form and a 0-0 or 1-1 draw can be expected, especially if both managers opt to play things safe with their tactics.
Anytime goal scorers
Chelsea- Olivier Giroud. The veteran French striker has been a reliable performer for Chelsea since his arrival at the club in January 2018, even chipping in with four goals in the league so far this season. The Frenchman will be a threat to the Reds defence and it will not be surprising if he does score.
Liverpool-Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian is one of the best finishers in world football and has netted 17 Premier League goals so far this season. He may well find the back of the net, regardless of whether Liverpool win, draw or lose the game.
