Liverpool travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea for the second time in just over a week on Tuesday night. The Reds came away with all three points in their Premier League encounter but this time they will be aiming to secure a place in the semi-finals of the Carling Cup.
Kenny Dalglish would love to bring some silverware to Anfield once again and he is likely to field a relatively strong team for this one. The bookmakers, however, don’t fancy Liverpool all that much and Unibet have priced them at 50/13 for the win. Chelsea are odds-on at 3/4 with Unibet while a draw is on offer at 12/5.
Some of the pressure on Andres Villas-Boas was relieved with his side’s 3-0 win over Wolves on Saturday. Chelsea dominated the match from the start and were three goals ahead before the break.
Villas-Boas is likely to make some changes to his line-up for this game but Chelsea should still have a strong team out.
