Old foes Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel meet again on Thursday night as Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield.
Since his arrival at Stamford Bridge things could hardly have gone better for Tuchel who is unbeaten in his first nine matches but he’ll need to improve upon his record against Klopp if his record is to continue. He’s yet to win an away match against his fellow German, drawing two and losing five.
He may not get a better chance given Liverpool’s current injury concerns. There is light at the end of the tunnel for the Reds though, Allison is expected to return in goals, Fabinho is likely to be in the squad and Diego Jota could also make a return.
With much at stake for both sides it’s the kind of match no-one will want to lose and the draw appeals at 13/5. Goals have been few and far between since Tuchel’s appointment. Under 2.5 goals is 10/11 and no first-half goals is 2/1 (Under 0.5).
Elsewhere Spurs make the short trip to draw specialists Fulham aiming to build on two impressive wins against Wolfsberger and Burnley. The Cottagers are scrapping for their Premier League lives and are unbeaten in eight but Spurs’ significant firepower should be the difference at 19/20.
In the night’s other Premier League match Everton face West Brom at the Hawthorns. Sam Allardyce is running out of games to save the Baggies from the drop but Saturday’s win over Brighton brough a very welcome three points. The Toffees, who have been excellent away from home this season, present a different proposition and the themsleves will be desperate for the three points that could take them back up to fourth.
