Top predictions for Liverpool vs. Chelsea

Green is leaning under 2.5 goals in Thursday’s showdown between Liverpool and Chelsea. Liverpool’s Sadio Mane has had plenty of success against Chelsea in his career, scoring seven goals in 16 matches against the Blues. It’s the 28-year-old from Senegal’s third-highest total versus any club, behind only Crystal Palace (10) and Aston Villa (eight). However, Mane has been in a bit of a drought, scoring just two goals in his last nine matches.

It will be difficult for Mane to break through against Chelsea, which has surrendered an average of 0.96 goals in the Premier League this season. Scoring also could be a problem for the Blues, who have lost four straight meetings with Liverpool. Tammy Abraham leads the team with 12 goals but has fallen out of favor with manager Thomas Tuchel and was kept out of the lineup for the last two matches, and his questionable status is one of the reasons Green is leaning toward the under on Thursday.
