Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to pick up all three points from the Premier League clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
Jose Mourinho’s side are the current league leaders, having collected 26 points from 10 matches so far this season.
Liverpool are 12 points behind Chelsea in seventh place, and former Reds striker Owen believes that Brendan Rodgers’s side will lose the contest.
‘It is well documented that Liverpool are struggling for goals and I don’t expect to see many against the unbeaten title favourites’, the ex-England international wrote on Betvictor.com.
‘After Saturday’s game at Anfield Chelsea will have played both Merseyside and Manchester Clubs away from home and, one could argue, their most difficult PL games for the rest of the season will be played in or around the capital.
‘Jose Mourinho will be well aware of this and the current 8/1 at BetVictor about Chelsea going through the current PL season unbeaten is likely to be much shorter if, as I expect, they get a result at Anfield’.
Owen’s prediction for the game between Liverpool and Chelsea will be backed by many.
On paper, Chelsea have a much better and stronger squad and will head into Saturday’s match as the favourites.
However, Liverpool do have some quality players who can step up in the big games. The Merseyside outfit’s fans will hope that they do so against Chelsea.
