Chelsea have won each of their last four league games and have outscored their opponents 6-0 over their last three. The Blues will try to stay hot in a tough road test this Saturday against Liverpool.

Liverpool are going off as +110 betting favorites at home in this match at sportsbooks monitored by Chelsea would pay +240 on an outright upset and +250 if this game plays to a draw.

Despite having three losses so far this season, Chelsea currently sit in third place on the English Premier League Table with 25 points and an 8-3-1 record. Liverpool have 22 points at 6-2-4 and could move into a tie with Chelsea with a win in this one. Each of the last two games between these two teams played in Liverpool ended in a draw.

Two other top-five teams are in action on Sunday as Manchester United (-550) host Brighton (+1900 to win, +600 to draw) and Tottenham (-380) host West Brom (+1200 to win, +500 to draw). West Brom have played to a draw in five of their last eight matches against Tottenham.

Manchester United picked up another blowout win at home last week, improving to 6-0 at Old Trafford while outscoring opponents 19-1 over those six games. This will be the first time that Brighton have faced Manchester United since 1993, with Man U holding a 10-1-5 all-time edge over the club.

On Sunday, Manchester City, the clear EPL championship favorite, will look to remain undefeated as -525 road favorites facing Huddersfield Town (+1400 to win, +600 to draw). Manchester City have been printing money for their backers as a big chalk favorite all season long, running away with the top spot on the table thus far with an 11-0-1 record.

Heading into this weekend, Burnley (6-2-4) and Arsenal (7-4-1) both have 22 points. Burnley is a +500 underdog hosting Arsenal (-180 to win, +330 to draw) on Sunday. Despite being tied for 11th in the league in scoring with only 12 goals this season, Burnley have managed to hang with Liverpool and Arsenal thanks to a defense that is tied with Tottenham for the third fewest goals allowed at only nine on the season.
