Chelsea play host to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening, and it’s a massive game none of the teams would want to lose, as Manchester City are currently 11 points clear at the top.

Chelsea are second in the league and one point ahead of Liverpool, albeit Jurgen Klopp’s side has played a game less.

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen is backing Liverpool to beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Owen said in his prediction for BetVictor: “Chelsea continued their poor run of form with that draw to Brighton.

“They had some chances, but I thought a draw was a fair result and the pressure is massively on them.

“Wing-backs are very important in Thomas Tuchel’s system, so to lose Ben Chilwell for the season is a huge blow and I’d expect a new signing as soon as possible.

“I didn’t see that Liverpool defeat to Leicester coming. I know Klopp was unhappy with what he saw that night but even if wasn’t a great performance, they still had chances.

“Schmeichel was outstanding in goal and Liverpool just had an off night, that can happen!

“This is a huge game and I think that whoever drops points here will find it very difficult to catch Man City.

“I can’t see Liverpool losing two games in a row, so I’m going for them here. It’s such a hard one to call but I think Liverpool’s extra quality in attack will be the difference. 2-1 to Liverpool.”
