Liverpool backers boosted by draw concession against Chelsea
The race to become 2013/14 Premier League champions rolls towards a climax at Anfield, as Liverpool look to extend their lead over second-placed Chelsea to eight points with a 4/6 win, which would be their 12th top-flight victory on the spin.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have landed the joint-highest home points haul in the league this term and last failed to win on their own patch seven games ago, when drawing 2-2 against Aston Villa, but punters steaming into the Reds against Jose Mourinho’s side needn’t fear a repeat of that result.
Ladbrokes are committed to refunding all losing Win-Draw-Win, correct score, first goalscorer and scorecast wagers up to £25 as a free bet if the Merseyside meeting ends up all square.
This means you can pile into the 1/6 title favourites safe in the knowledge that, should Liverpool draw in the Premier League for just the fifth time this term, there’ll be a free spin waiting for you at the till.
In the first-goalscorer market, England hopeful Raheem Sterling looks wildly overpriced at 10/1 after bagging stylish openers in Liverpool’s last two games against Manchester City and Norwich, especially seen as the 19-year-old doubled up in the second half at Carrow Road.
The Reds have won two of their last five fixtures 2-1, which was also the scoreline when Chelsea lost last time out in the league at home to Sunderland.
With a tight clash anticipated and taking into account the hosts’ recent propensity for one-goal wins, 15/2 about the same again here looks the way to play, while a scorecast combination of Sterling to score first/Liverpool win 2-1 can be backed at a meaty 50/1.
For those of you who can’t split the sides the draw is available at 11/4, with Mourinho’s visitors at 4/1 for a victory that would put them right back in the reckoning for a third league title under the Portuguese.
