Both these sides can boast having inform strikers, with Chelsea frontman Tammy Abraham top of the goalscoring charts along with Sergio Aguero with seven already to his name. Sadio Mane hit a double in the 3-1 win over Newcastle last weekend and has now scored three times in his last two Premier League games and that could be why the bookies expect goals.
MATCH TO END WITH MORE THAN 3.5 GOALS
Liverpool’s front three are in devastating form already this season, with ten goals between them, while Chelsea’s youngsters Abraham and Mason Mount share the same amount of goals for the Blues.
AWAY TEAM TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE

Head to Head

Chelsea will be confident after that good win 5-2 win over Wolves on the weekend and will want to prove something against Liverpool in this one. The Blues are unbeaten since losing 4-0 to United on the opening day of the season and Coach Frank Lampard will want his side to derail the Reds title charge.
For Liverpool, this match is a big test of their title credentials, with Manchester City slipping up against Norwich last week they have a chance to lay down a marker in this tie and keep some distance between themselves and Pep Guardiola’s men.
