Our match prediction:
Wednesday’s game at Anfield sees Liverpool take on Chelsea in a postponed fixture. The Reds are eager to stay in the race for a place in the Europa League and they will be looking to build on a 3-0 win over Watford when they host Chelsea at their Anfield. Jurgen Klopp’s men have been producing splendid displays in the second half of the season and thanks to a 3-0 win over Villarreal on Thursday evening the team made it to the Europa League final. Chelsea, on the other hand, are having a season to forget, but, as things stand now, they are likely to finish the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign in the top half of the standings. The Blues suffered a 3-2 loss to relegation strugglers Sunderland at the weekend and, as a result, we predict that the visitors are going to leave their hearts on the field in Wednesday’s football game. Taking everything into account, the two teams are likely to share the spoils at Anfield.
Highligted Player (Sturridge):
Daniel Andre Sturridge is an English footbal player born on 1st of September 1989 in Birmingham. Sturridge started his football career for Aston Villa. After playing for Chelsea, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers Sturridge got transferred to Liverpool for approximately 11 million euro. Daniel Sturridge made his debut for the English national team on 15th of November 2011.Sturridge is known for being a strong and fast left footed striker. Because of his great technique defenders don’t know what to expect once they are in a one against one situation with Sturridge. Sturridge won several prices with Chelsea like the Champions League, the Premier League title and the FA Cup. Sturridge’s best individual season was in 2013/2014 where he and Suarez were able to reach to the second place in the Premier League. The way Sturridge celebrates his goals are very recognizable and widely mimicked.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash. After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
