Chelsea and their manager, Jose’ Mourinho reached a perfectly timed agreement to prolong the Portuguese’s contract until the 30th June 2019 (his previous 4-year contract was signed in 2013 and was worth £10m per season) with the Blues 48 hours after having won their 5th Title. Mourinho is now the highest paid manager in the game, and with a ratio of a title won every 34 matches a top football tipster says that few can argue he doesn’t deserve this accolade. In their next match against Liverpool, the Blues will not have much to play for, whereas the reds are still chasing 4th place and Champions League qualification. A football betting expert still thinks that Chelsea will not be a pushover as their rivalry with Liverpool is rather bitter, and with the summer holidays not too far away the players will be looking for another scalp before hanging their boots up for a couple of months. The visitors have a remote possibility of still finishing fourth but they have to come away from Stamford Bridge with all three points which a top football tipster knows will be an incredibly difficult task especially considering Chelsea are undefeated at home all season. Both sides are still struggling with some key injuries, but of the two, the home team will be less worried and can really just approach this match with the objective of not losing.
Our Probable Formations:
Chelsea (220.127.116.11) Courtois, Azpilicueta, Terry, Cahill, Ivanovic, Matic, Zouma, Hazard, Fabregas, Willian and Remy.

BetAdvisor Top Tips:
A sports betting expert will take into consideration the fact that the home side are undefeated in their last 18 home matches in the Premier League and all season at Stamford Bridge so an away victory really does look like a long shot.
A top football pick will be for an under 2.5 as there have been under 2.5 goals scored in 9 of Chelsea’s last 10 home games and 8 of Liverpool’s last 9 away games in the Premier League.
