Chelsea don’t do ‘Long Term’

When the news broke that Chelsea decided to part company with Graham Potter yesterday night, the first thing I did was to look at the news articles from when he was appointed, less than seven months ago.

Team News & Form

At the time, I remember being quite surprised to read that this was going to be a ‘long-term’ project and that the former Brighton manager would have had enough time to make his plan work.

I thought, “Really?” Since when does Chelsea do ‘long-term’? Time has proven that I was correct in being sceptical, and even so, I was quite surprised about the timing of this departure. 

At first, it looked as if Potter had survived the 2-0 home defeat to Aston Villa, probably on the basis that he is still in the Champions League. But eventually, Todd Boehly took the decision on the back of a meeting he had with Potter himself on Sunday, which probably made the situation even worse than what we saw on the pitch on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

So it is all back to square one for Chelsea, who have invested heavily, very heavily, in the winter transfer window and would now need to find another manager, who will probably tell the board, “These are not the players I choose; bring me someone else.” 

In the meantime, however, Chelsea has decided to put in charge Bruno Saltor, who is Potter’s former assistant. It is difficult to see what changes we should expect to see, considering that he is a coach who has played a key role in Potter’s project.

He will probably try to get players back in their natural positions, but we shouldn’t hold our breath to see something completely different. Another thing to consider is why Potter wasn’t sacked during the international break. At least that would have given the team time to reassess themselves and also given his temporary replacement time to do some work in preparation for the next game.

Of course, the performance against Aston Villa did escalate the situation, but surely Chelsea’s management was well prepared to press the ‘eject’ button before Saturday afternoon. Why not earlier? Now the team only has less than 48 hours to digest the news and avoid being humiliated by Liverpool on Tuesday night.

The toxic atmosphere has been at Stamford Bridge for some time, and with the Blues now in the bottom half of the Premier League, in 11th place, despite all the financial investments, things are unlikely to get any better anytime soon. Bruno Saltor is taking over a team that is now 13 points adrift of the top four and that doesn’t have any realistic chances of playing in the Champions League next season unless they win the current competition, which seems highly unlikely.

But Chelsea don’t only have confidence issues; they have problems all over the pitch. Not only are they struggling to score goals, but they looked very vulnerable at the back, and Bruno would probably need to prioritise this aspect if he wants to avoid a series of humiliations from now until the end of the season. 

The numbers are quite clear, as they have failed to keep a clean sheet in five of their last six games, and I don’t see how they will be able to stop a Liverpool side who, despite their own problems, do have goals in them. Klopp’s men were well beaten by title-chaser Manchester City at the weekend, despite leading 1-0.

It is not a great season for the Reds, who have now slipped to 8th place, but they have at least looked a lot more alive than Chelsea in recent times, with huge peaks like the 7-0 win against Man Utd and huge lows like the defeat against Bournemouth.

When these two teams met in January, they played out a goalless draw, but just two months later, a lot has changed, so a draw will be useless, especially for Liverpool, who still have some hopes of salvaging the season. With the issues outside and inside the pitch, I struggle to see the Blues delivering a good performance on Tuesday, and the value is on Liverpool to get the three points in London. 

If they want to have a chance of making the top four, Liverpool need to take full advantage of Chelsea’s situation and bounce back after losing all their last three games on the road.

For our value bet, I have picked a treble bet builder on this game, which has just been boosted by William Hill. It is currently at 10/1 at the moment of writing, from 15/2. As mentioned above, I believe Liverpool will win, and Mo Salah is likely to make his presence felt against his former club.

Despite this not being his best season for sure, the Egyptian King has still managed to score a remarkable 12 goals in 27 Premier League games this season, with an average of 3 shots per game and 1.3 shots on target per game.

He scored against Manchester City at the weekend, and his good form was also appreciated when on international duties with Egypt, where he netted two goals in two games. He has now scored four goals in the last four Premier League games and surely has what it takes to leave a mark at Stamford Bridge after having scored four league goals in 11 matches played against his former employer. 

We said that Chelsea have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last six games, but Liverpool haven’t done much better on the road. In fact, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have only been able to keep three clean sheets in the league this term. Despite all the problems, Chelsea do have quality players in attack like Mason Mount, Kay Harvetz, Joao Felix, and others, and should be able to find a goal at some point, making betting on both teams to score an interesting proposition as part of this 10/1 bet builder value treble. 

Chelsea vs Liverpool Correct Score Prediction: Liverpool 2-1

Saltor won’t be able to make many changes on such short notice, and this should be an advantage to Liverpool, who need a win to stay in the top four race.

Despite having defensive issues, as we have seen, the Reds do look like a better proposition right now and have shown to be able to raise their game when it matters, as they did against United. Against this morale-depleted Blues side, back them to edge it in a match that should have goals coming from both ends.
