The pressure is all on Liverpool ahead of Sunday afternoon's live clash with Chelsea at Anfield and the latest Premier League Odds make them second-favourites to win the division.

The Reds are in action after title rivals Manchester City, who visit Palace in the day's earlier kick-off, and this Super Sunday could well define the race for the top-flight crown. Liverpool simply cannot afford to slip up.

Under 2.5 goals    Best Bet 11/10
Eden Hazard anytime scorer 13/5
1-1 correct score 15/2

Liverpool are unbeaten at Anfield this season and, in theory, this could be a good time to play Chelsea, who return from a long trip back from the Czech Republic following their 1-0 win at Slavia Prague in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Blues have been relatively poor in away games in the Premier League too as all nine of their away wins this season have come against teams who are placed 10th or lower in the table going into this weekend's fixtures. In contrast, Maurizio Sarri's men have lost all five of their away matches at the current top-nine in the table.

The Blues are 9/2 underdogs in the betting for Sunday but they have a remarkably good record at Anfield, where they haven't lost in eight visits since May 2012, winning three and drawing five. Four of those five draws ended 1-1 and a repeat of the 1-1 correct score is a tempting 15/2 this weekend (Betfair).

In fact, four of the past six league meetings between these sides have ended 1-1, with the other two ending in a win apiece. Furthermore, five of those six games have produced two goals or less and under 2.5 goals is a stand-out bet at 11/10 with Betfred.

Liverpool do have the best defensive record in the top-flight, conceding only 20 goals, and they will have to be on their guard against a Chelsea side that has lost just once in their last seven Premier League outings.

Eden Hazard is starting to find form again as he has scored four goals and laid on two assists in his last six league appearances. The Belgian has as good record at Anfield too as he has scored four goals in seven appearances at the Merseyside ground in domestic competitions, with Paddy Power going 13/5 for Hazard to score at anytime on Sunday. Could he be the man to derail Liverpool's title charge?
