The striker is just one goal away from breaking the best-ever tally and Paddy Power are offering a special 3/1 deal on him to score any time vs Newcastle
Luis Suarez’s tears after Crystal Palace’s incredible three-goal comeback on Monday are bound to one of the defining images of 2013-14’s Premier League season, symbolising the way that Liverpool have disintegrated after a stunning rise up the table.
Manchester City now have the title on their lap and it would be stunning to watch them throw it away at home to a feeble-away-from-home West Ham.
However, Suarez could very well take out his anger on a Newcastle United team who have been one of the worst in the league since the turn of the year. Alan Pardew’s men finally stopped the rot with a win over Cardiff last weekend, ending a six-game losing streak, but they remain ripe for the picking.
Which makes Paddy Power’s Suarez offer for new customers all the more appealing: the bookmakers are giving new customers ludicrously tempting odds of 3/1 (4.0) for the Uruguayan to score at anytime on Sunday.
If the ex-Ajax man scores once more for Liverpool he will break the record for goals scored in a single 38-game Premier League campaign. Considering he did not feature for several matches at the start of the season due to his bite on Branislav Ivanovic last year, this feat is all the more impressive.
Anfield is likely to be rocking regardless of their fall from grace in the past couple of weeks, as the Reds’ improvement this campaign has been phenomenal and they will be returning to the Champions League in 2014-15.
Liverpool are 2/9 (1.22) to win at home to the Geordies this weekend and 16/1 (17.0) to sneak the Premier League title from under Man City’s noses in spectacular style.
At the Etihad Stadium, where the home fans will be praying for a less nerve-wracking end to the season than when they won the title in astonishing style two years ago versus QPR, Edin Dzeko may well be looked to as the hero in Sergio Aguero’s expected absence.
Dzeko scored a double at home to Aston Villa en route to a 4-0 drubbing, though the result misrepresents how solid the visitors were for two thirds of the match.
The Bosnian, who will be at the World Cup this summer, is the subject of another mouth-watering Paddy Power offer: the striker is 7/2 (4.5) to score at anytime against the Hammers.
Considering Dzeko’s brilliant performances in recent weeks, he is certain to be at the forefront of City’s forays forward. It would be more of a surprise if he did not get on the scoresheet in the Manchester club’s final game of the season.
Whichever of the two player offers catches your eye the most, the chance to back either at a vastly enhanced price looks too good to turn down for anyone currently without a Paddy Power account.
