Chelsea and Liverpool to draw 1-1 at 6/1
Chelsea and Liverpool battle in a high-profile Premier League clash in what is the second Friday Night Football match of the 2016/17 season, and it is from this fixture that Coral have picked their latest bet of the day.
Sensational odds of 6/1 say that the Blues and Reds will draw 1-1 at Stamford Bridge, in the fifth gameweek of the campaign.
Read on to find out why this bet represents great value…
Chelsea v Liverpool is one on the highest played fixtures in the English top-flight, with the pair having battled a whopping 42 times since 2004/05.
Most recently, they have drawn four times in the last four seasons, with all of them being a 1-1 scoreline.
On top of that, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have already managed that exact result this term, against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, while Chelsea draw 2-2 last time out with Swansea City.
Blues and Reds evenly matched
Liverpool also toppled another north London outfit Arsenal 4-3 on the road, so are perfectly capable of getting a result in the capital against top teams.
Just three points separate the duo in the Premier League table, with Chelsea up in second and the Reds in sixth, which sets up a tasty duel at Stamford Bridge.
While both teams are former Champions League winners, they have the advantage of having not played in Europe in midweek due to their surprisingly low league finishes last season.
As Liverpool have failed to keep a clean sheet this term, while Chelsea have kept just one, goals are certainly expected for this clash.
So, what are you waiting for punters? Take these super 6/1 odds for the English giants to draw 1-1 for a great chance of reaping rewards!
