Simply put, neither club is anywhere near where they'd like to be in the Premier League.
Forget the title race, their respective hopes of a Top-Four Finish are looking bleaker by the week given that they are both now 10 points off the pace. Instead, this is a battle of mid-table mediocrity: 9th (Liverpool) and 10th (Chelsea).
Saturday's duel does, however, give each of the under-performing clubs an opportunity for a fresh start in order to galvanize their season and get their Champions League hopes back on track.
Liverpool are the odds-on 17/20 favourites for the win, Chelsea are out at 16/5 to claim back-to-back league victories for the first time since mid October, with a draw available at 14/5.
Below, we reveal our 11/1 Bet Builder and justifications for each pick.
Liverpool vs Chelsea Bet Builder Tips
Liverpool may still be recovering from the shell-shock of that 3-0 spanking against Brighton, which bewildered Jurgen Klopp labelled his worst game in charge, yet back on home soil the Reds will be expected to bounce back against struggling Chelsea.
Liverpool can count on an impressive home record in the league, where they've won 19 of their last 23 matches in front of their own fans, and lost only once in 32 games stretching back nearly two years.
As for Chelsea, they've won just two of their last 10 matches in all competitions, in the process losing seven times (all to nil). On top of that, their away form is absolutely shocking: a draw and six defeats from their last seven road trips.
So, with all of the above in mind, Liverpool to win is the first selection at 5/6 with BoyleSports.
Next up we're backing Mo Salah, at 6/5, to wipe the dust off those goalscoring boots and find the back of the net against a jittery Blues defence that hasn't kept a clean sheet away from home in seven games since October, and conceded six goals in their last two away games alone.
Salah has only scored once in his last five games, but has been on the scoresheet in five of his previous eight home games, while he scored in both league encounters with Chelsea last term.
Finally, our Boylesports Bet Builder springs up to 11/1 following the addition of our third and final pick, which requires Jorginho to be booked at 11/4.
No Chelsea or Liverpool player has received more league yellows this season than the Italian midfielder, who has four cards on the board, which he's amassed in his last seven starts including in his last outing against Crystal Palace.
