Capital One Cup Semi Final 2nd Leg – Chelsea vs Liverpool Betting Preview

Liverpool travel to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night to for the second leg on their Capital One Cup semi final with Premier league leaders Chelsea. The first meeting between the two clubs ended in a 1-1 draw at Anfield last week with goals from Hazard to scored from the penalty spot and then from Sterling who went on a solo run and then fired home from inside the box. A place at Wembley is up for grabs for the winners and they will face Tottenham Hotspur or Sheffield United who are in the other Semi Final, that game also ended 1-1 and the return leg is Sheffield United’s stadium.

Liverpool have been in some good form recently which has seen them rise up to eighth place in the Premier league table after a very poor start to the season. Last time out they played against Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup 4th round, where they drew the game 0-0 at home. Chelsea will head into this game as the Premier league leaders, however in their last match which was also an FA Cup 4th round tie, ended in a defeat at home to League One team Bradford City, the game ended 2-4.

Chelsea Team News

Jose Mourinho does have a couple of injuries going into this game, however they are more than capable of bringing in good solid replacements. Mikel and Schurrle will both miss the game through injury and I expect Costa to come back in to the starting 11.

Liverpool Team News

Liverpool manager will also be happy going into this game as they only have a few injuries to contend with. Flanagan remains a long term absentee. Sturridge will miss this game but might be back for the weekend and Brad Jones will also miss this trip to London.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the 160 previous meetings between these two clubs over the years there has been a total of 460 goals which produces an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.88.

When the two teams have met at Stamford Bridge there has been a total of 220 goals scored in 81 matches played, which generates us with an average of 2.71 goals per game.

Both statistics seem to suggest that we will see between two and three goals scored.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

On Tuesday Night live on Sky Sports 1 HD you can tune in and watch Premier league leaders Chelsea play host to eighth placed team Liverpool in the 2nd leg of their Capital One Cup semi final class with the first leg ending 1-1 at Anfield last week. Chelsea head into the game having lost their last game against Bradford City in the FA Cup and manager Jose Mourinho said after the game that the loss was absolutely disgraceful.

Liverpool should be quietly confident going into this game with them having secured more overall victories than their opponents Chelsea over the years and they also have the better recent form than the London club. Balotelli might make the squad as he has been left out recently and the reason is that he is not good enough at the moment.

My banker for this game is going to be Chelsea to win to nil.

My saver is going to Costa To Score first.
