Liverpool vs Fulham – Hard to see any goals for the visitors
Fulham have never left with victory in their previous 29 trips to Anfield and this record is unlikely to end this season, despite the fact that Liverpool have still not hit top gear under Roy Hodgson.
Liverpool’s betting odds are 1/2 to beat Fulham and for many reasons this appears to be a respectable price for a number of reasons.
Hodgson’s team have kept clean sheets in their last four games at Anfield in all competitions, while they have claimed 17 of their 22 points in the Premier League this season at home.
Furthermore, Steven Gerrard is expected to return following a month on the sidelines to give the team an extra boost.
There is little to be optimistic about for Fulham as not only do they find it virtually impossible to win at Liverpool, they tend to struggle to collect three points in the Premier League full stop.
They have only won one of their last 13 league games, while it is 26 top-flight fixtures since they last collected maximum points on their travels.
On a brighter note is that they have collected goalless draws at Liverpool in each of the last two seasons.
Premier League betting odds have Fulham at 6/1 to beat Liverpool.
To Win To Nil
It is not only Liverpool’s run of clean sheets of late that lead to the belief that they will avoid conceding against Fulham.
Fulham have not managed to find the target in the last four Premier League seasons at Anfield, while they are averaging less than a goal a game across their 17 fixtures so far this season.
Liverpool are 6/5 to beat Fulham without conceding a goal, while it is 1/1 that they simply keep a clean sheet.
A £10 bet on the scorecast of Liverpool winning 1-0 and Gerrard scoring the only goal could see a return of £220. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
