Liverpool Form & Team News 

Liverpool kickstarted their new Premier League with a dominant 4-1 victory at Anfield against Norwich City on Friday night. 

The Reds didn't look to have lost a step since their Champions League victory in May and will have another European trophy in their sights on Wednesday. 

Jurgen Klopp will be without first-choice goalkeeper Allison for the game after The Brazilian suffered an injury during Friday's game. Former West Ham goalkeeper, Adrian will be drafted into the team to fill in for him. 

Sadio Mane could make a return to the first team after being rested for Friday's game following his run in the African Cup of Nations. Though, Klopp may not want to drop Divock Origi, who grabbed a goal on Friday night and has a brilliant record for the club in European competitions.

Chelsea Form & Team News 

Frank Lampard's run as Chelsea manager didn't get off to the fairytale start he would have wanted. Chelsea were comfortably beaten 4-0 at Old Trafford as Lampard was forced to name an inexperienced side. 

Antonio Rudiger, Willian and N'Golo Kante are all still doubts for the club on Wednesday night, which means Lampard will probably have to field a very similar side to the one that were so easily dispatched at Old Trafford. Youngsters, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount were both handed starts for the club and are likely to make their European debut this week as well. 

Liverpool vs Chelsea Analysis- Liverpool looking strong 

Chelsea's biggest problem on Sunday afternoon was their defence. Kurt Zouma suffered the most and had a horrible afternoon trying to keep the United attack at bay. Things won't get any easier for Lampard's men as they face one of the most deadly strike forces in football. 

With Klopp having a near fully fit squad to choose from, Liverpool should have far too much quality for Lampard's side. 

Chelsea's recent away games have seen a lot of goals scored. The club have seen over 3.5 goals in the 4 matches when they have played away from Stamford Bridge. Given Liverpool's goalscoring prowess, we could see that once again on Wednesday night.

Liverpool Vs Chelsea Tips- A Liverpool handicap victory

Liverpool looked incredibly dominant on Friday night, and they were unforgiving in front of goal against a newly promoted Norwich City side. They will look to punish Chelsea's inexperienced defence in Istanbul. Liverpool to win the game is currently priced at 1.57 with bet365, while Chelsea are valued at 5.50, which highlights the gulf in class between the two sides at the moment. 

Liverpool winning doesn't present the most value betting wise, so a Liverpool -1 handicap at 2.50 is the best value bet you can find on the result of the match. 

In the goalscoring market, Divock Origi, who has an excellent record for Liverpool in Europe, is priced at 2.37 in the anytime goalscorer market, which is a great value bet to place.
