Liverpool vs Man City – Visitors to drop more away points
The final Premier League encounter of matchday 32 pairs Liverpool against Manchester City, who they haven’t defeated in their last four attempts.
Whenever questions are asked as to whether Kenny Dalglish should be given the Liverpool job on a permanent basis, they tend to respond with a victory, and there are certainly doubts right now after the loss to Roy Hodgson’s West Brom.
The Reds have overcome Chelsea and Manchester United under their interim boss though and are unbeaten with him at Anfield, winning three of their last four there in the Premier League, so look generously priced at 7/5.
Manchester City stepped up their pursuit of Champions League football by thumping Sunderland 5-0 last time out, but having once been the best travellers in the division, they have gone nine away games without a win in 2011.
That’s why they are 19/10 outsiders to claim three points, while a fourth draw in five meetings between these clubs is a 23/10 prospect.
Roberto Mancini’s side may have scored five last week, however they haven’t been too prolific on the road in recent months, failing to fire in each of the last three.
Combine that statistic with the fact that both clubs have scored in none of the last seven matches that the Citizens have been involved in, and one of the last 11, and the Reds win to nil holds plenty of appeal at 10/3.
Andy Carroll is yet to score since his £35 million move from January, so instead Dirk Kuyt has filled the void since Torres’ departure, grabbing their last four goals on Merseyside. He is 9/4 to net again here, and 7/1 to strike first.
A £20 stake on the hosts winning without conceding would provide a £66.67 profit. New customers can sign up here to claim a £30 free bet.
