Hull have the direst of records against Liverpool – they haven’t beaten them in 16 attempts in all competitions, losing 12 – and with Luis Suarez spearheading the visitors’ rampant attack, 13 losses can be added to that stat after this clash.
Hull had begun to lay the foundations for a steady season on their return to the top-flight by making the KC Stadium a really difficult place to win, until they let bottom-placed Crystal Palace collect all the points last time out that is.
Like any of the Premier League’s big sharks, Liverpool will certainly be smelling blood now, and punters should not hesitate in placing the 8/13 on an away win at the head of any prospective accumulators this weekend.
Although Liverpool are winless in their last three road trips since beating Sunderland 3-1, they have just visited Newcastle, Arsenal and Everton respectively.
Meanwhile, when faced with sides from below the Premier League waistline, Brendan Rodgers’ Reds have dispatched all six – scoring sixteen times across the last four of those victories.
Immediately this adds gloss to Ladbrokes’ offering of 29/20 on the Liverpool win with over 2.5 goals being scored in the match, especially as the Reds have a propensity to ship at least one goal per game.
Liverpool tend to be fast starters as well, so it may well be worth backing the 2/1 that they score more goals in the first-half – as if the league table was based purely on half-time results, the
Merseysiders would be sitting pretty at the summit.
Finally, if you had to pick a man to do the damage then who better than Suarez, who has bagged nine in his last eight Premier League appearances and is priced at 7/2 to score first or last, 5/6 anytime and 16/1 to net a second hat-trick of the season
