Ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Liverpool at Anfield, Liverpool legend Michael Owen has predicted the outcome of the game.
“Liverpool’s form has been somewhat indifferent since they won the Premier League and were beaten by Arsenal in their last match after two unusual errors in defence allowed the Gunners to come back from a goal down,” Owen told Bet Victor .
“That defeat means that Liverpool can no longer set the record for most points in a season but that won’t in any way, diminish what they’ve already achieved this season.
“The Reds will finally be presented with the Premier League trophy at the end of the match and will undoubtedly want to end their last home game of the season in style.
“Chelsea’s narrow 1-0 victory over Norwich on Tuesday means they sit third in the table at the start of Matchday 37 but this is a tricky match for them to face at this late stage of the season.
“They finish the season with a home game against Wolves and with Leicester City and Manchester United breathing down their necks Frank Lampard will be desperate for a positive result at Anfield.
“Liverpool won the reverse fixture 2-1 back in September and I fancy Jurgen Klopp’s men to grind out another 2-1 victory this time around.”
