Why you should back Liverpool
With top scorer Mohamed Salah missing due to a hamstring injury, the Reds will be looking to players such as forwards Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota to provide offense. They are tied for second on the club with seven goals apiece, and both converted in Liverpool's 2-0 triumph over Burnley and registered a brace in their win at Bournemouth. The 24-year-old Nunez also is tied for seventh in the Premier League with six assists, his highest total since notching nine in 2020-21 for Benfica of Portugal's Primeira Liga.
Nunez and Jota also each recorded a goal in the Reds' 5-2 victory against Norwich City in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday. That result extended Liverpool's unbeaten streak across all competitions to 10 games, and Jurgen Klopp hopes his squad can extend its run of 22 straight matches without a loss at Anfield. The Reds are 8-2-0 at home in EPL action this season and finished 9-3-0 on their pitch last campaign after dropping a 2-1 decision to Leeds United on Oct. 29, 2022. See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Chelsea
The Blues also will be without one of their top scorers as striker Nicolas Jackson (seven goals) is representing Senegal in the Africa Cup of Nations. Chelsea will be expecting Cole Palmer to continue his impressive pace as the 21-year-old midfielder has recorded five goals over his last six Premier League matches. Palmer, who failed to convert in 19 EPL contests with Manchester City before joining the Blues last September, leads the club with nine goals in 17 games.
After registering a brace in Chelsea's 3-2 triumph over Luton Town on Dec. 30, Palmer netted the lone goal versus Fulham in the club's last league contest. He also converted twice in the team's 6-1 victory against Middlesbrough in the second leg of their EFL Cup semifinal tie last week. Winger Raheem Sterling has recorded five goals and three assists in league play for the Blues, who are unbeaten in nine of their last 11 visits to Anfield. See which team to pick here.
