Chelsea faces Liverpool at the Stamford Bridge in Premier League’s big derby of the first round. Let’s preview it in our high odds soccer predictions for underdogs.
Chelsea start a new life with the manager Mauricio Pochettino. Tottenham’s ex-coach is expected to raise the Blues’ levels after a very challenging 2021/22 campaign that didn’t end very well. Surely the Argentine manager will need time to reorganise the team, but we all know what he’s capable of.
Once again Chelsea were very active on the summer transfer market as they signed and sold many players. Among the new faces in the dressing room are Christopher Nkunku, Axel Disasi, Nicolas Jackson, Lesley Ugochukwu, Robert Sanchez and Angelo. Meanwhile Kovacic, Havertz, Mount, Koulibaly, Pulisic, Mendy, Kante and Loftus-Cheek left Stamford Bridge.
In their pre-season matches Chelsea didn’t lose a single game. This gave the club’s fans hope that Pochettino is already doing his magic with the team.
After failing to reach Top 4 last season, Liverpool are eager to fix their mistake and be a contender again. On the market the Reds reinforced their midfield as they signed Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. These two players must improve the team’s midfield and make it stronger. Jurgen Klopp’s team surely needed this. At the same time players like Fabinho, Keita, Henderson, Firmino and Milner left the club.
Liverpool lost just one of their friendly matches this summer – against Bayern Munich in the USA. At the same time they recorded wins against Karlsruhe, Leicester City and Darmstadt.
That’s our high odds soccer predictions for underdogs for the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Liverpool in London. This is a terrific game to start the 2023/24 season in the Prem. Now let’s see how these two teams will do against each other. It shall be really exciting!
