The Reds have won three consecutive games and new Betway customers can get an exclusive price on another high scoring win in Saturday’s match with Aston Villa
The most entertaining Premier League game last weekend saw Liverpool claim three points at the Britannia Stadium thanks to a dramatic 5-3 win over Mark Hughes’ men.
After starting the season with three consecutive 1-0 wins, clean sheets have been a problem for Brendan Rodgers of late, with his side recording just two in their last 10 Premier League matches. With Jose Enrique, Daniel Agger and Jon Flanagan all side-lined through injury, Brendan Rodger’s men look far from confident at the back.
Saturday’s opponents Aston Villa will be encouraged by what they saw at Stoke, with some particularly accommodating defending allowing the Potters to claw their way back into the game before eventually succumbing to Liverpool’s superior firepower. Saturday’s visitors are available at 11/1 (12.0) to stun the Reds with a win, the draw trades at 5/1 (6.0).
Due to Liverpool’s impressive goalscoring record this season there are some short prices in the anytime goalscorer market. Luis Suarez (7/20) and Daniel Sturridge (7/10) are both very short with penalty taker and captain Steven Gerrard priced at 31/20 (2.55) to score anytime. For the visitors, Christian Benteke, who scored his first goal in 12 games against Arsenal, is a 3/1 (4.0) shot to score at Anfield.
Despite losing four of their last six matches in all competitions, Villa have found the net in five of those games and as a result it’s no surprise to see Liverpool to win and both teams to score at a best price of 2/1 (3.0).
New Betway customers can get an exclusive price of 5/1 (6.0) on this market though, giving punters a great opportunity to profit from a game where this selection looks a particularly appealing one. This offer is exclusive to Goal readers who sign up through the links on this page.
Paul Lambert’s side managed to find the net against Arsenal on Monday but their efforts were in vein as a quickfire double from Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud proved decisive and Liverpool – who are just 1/4 (1.25) to record a fourth successive win – look unlikely to drop more points as they battle to remain inside the top four.
At the current best price of 2/1 (3.0) this bet is given a 33 per cent chance of proving a correct selection, with Betway’s exclusive price, the implied chance of success percentage drops to 16.67%, meaning punters have a significantly better value proposition than backing inferior prices elsewhere.
