Suarez off to a flying start?

| 01.02.2011

Luis Suarez is 7/2 with Ladbrokes to score first on his Liverpool debut against Stoke City on Wednesday night.

It’s 4/5 the Uruguayan finds the net at any time and 20/1 he marks his debut with a hat-trick.

The bookies also prefer Suarez to Carroll in the battle of the new Liverpool strikers, making him 5/6 to score more than his colleague who is 5/4 chance in the match bet.

The record breaking deadline day activity also saw Liverpool cut from 12/1 to 8/1 for a top 4 finish as Chelsea were trimmed from 7/1 to 6/1 for the League.

Newcastle’s relegation odds also shorten from 12/1 to 10/1.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We expect Suarez to steal a march on Carroll and find the net at least once on Wednesday. A hat-trick would quickly banish any memories of Torres as the Kop looks for a new hero.”
