Chelsea v Liverpool Preview

Chelsea’s Form

Chelsea, in a sense, are an active football experiment of plucking promising footballing talents from across the world – signing as many as possible for big fees and long contracts – and seeing if they can click together into an unstoppable force.

It hasn’t quite happened yet though, best evidenced by their mediocre league form with 10 wins, 5 draws and 10 defeats to put them 10th in the league. The underlying metrics have them 6th in the Expected Points table suggesting they’re performing better than what the real table would show.

Chelsea’s Path To The Carabao Cup Final

Due to the absence of European football, the Blues started in the 2nd round against Wimbledon. That day an Enzo Fernandez winner gave them a 2-1 victory. That was followed by 1-0 and 2-0 wins over Brighton and Blackburn respectively. Chelsea overcame Newcastle by the skin of their teeth when Mudryk equalised in the 92nd minute before eventually winning out 4-2 on penalties.

They finally booked their place in the Final against Middlesbrough, despite losing the opening leg 1-0 they proved far too good in the second leg to win 6-1 on the night and 6-2 on aggregate. It has been a long journey to Wembley but there does seem to be a grit and resilience present in this Chelsea side’s cup run.

Liverpool’s Form

Liverpool are recovered from the poor season last year which ended trophyless (aside from a Community Shield success) and are now fighting for trophies on fronts in both the Premier League (which they currently lead), into the Fifth Round of the FA Cup following dispatches of Arsenal and Norwich and into the Round of 16 of the Europa League. They will have to win their first chance to win silverware this season under Klopp come Sunday in the Carabao Cup Final.

Liverpool’s Path To The Carabao Cup Final

Liverpool started their cup run in the 3rd Round when they overcame potential banana skin Leicester City 3-1 and Bournemouth in the 4th Round 1-2 with Gakpo scoring for the second successive game.

It was the Quarter-Final stage where they announced themselves as serious contenders with a 5-1 demolition of fellow Premier League side West Ham with Gakpo scoring for the third successive game of the competition.

In their Semi-Final first leg, they won 2-1 against Fulham with Gakpo scoring again, they sealed their Final spot with a 1-1 draw in the second leg.

Key Players To Watch

Conor Gallagher – Chelsea

A product of the Chelsea Academy, Gallagher plays as a box-to-box midfielder but can play further up the pitch or even deeper depending on the tactical system. Gallagher’s style of play is reminiscent of Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.

Gallagher recently saved Chelsea’s blushes with a brace against Crystal Palace to earn them a 1-3 victory which was followed by a full 90 minutes in their 1-1 draw against Man City.

Cody Gakpo – Liverpool

The versatile Dutchman has played all across the front-three this season along with occasionally playing central midfield making him a key cog in the Klopp wheel. In all competitions, he has 11 goals and 5 assists but has saved his best form for this competition with 4 goals from 5 matches.

He’s not even guaranteed a spot in the starting side Sunday but given his form I’d expect he gets the nod.

Chelsea v Liverpool Prediction & Best Bet

Prediction: Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

Chelsea have saved their best performances for cup competitions this season and a victory in this final could be their kick-start to becoming a more confident, consistent side.

Liverpool will be driven by the opportunity to land Klopp another trophy before he departs this summer and their rampant victory against Brentford mid-week suggests they are coming to the boil nicely ahead of Sunday.

Anything can happen in a final, but Liverpool are worthy favourites in this one.

Best Bet: Liverpool -1 @ 14/5
