Liverpool ace boosted to maintain strong record versus Magpies
Liverpool against Newcastle is a fixture synonymous with goals and one man in a red shirt has certainly enjoyed marking recent meetings.
Daniel Sturridge was not available for the November clash between the sides in the Premier League due to injury, but now he’s back in the side, the England striker will be eager to increase his burgeoning tally against Newcastle.
The Reds frontman netted home and away vesus the Magpies last season, to take his tally to four in just three appearances against them in a Liverpool shirt.
Sturridge also notched against the north east club in a prolific loan spell at Bolton back in 2012 when still on Chelsea’s books.
Great news for Ladbrokes customers lies in store then because Studger has been enhanced to grab the game’s first goal from 10/3, out to 9/2, when John Carver’s side arrive at Anfield on Monday night.
The caretaker boss has overseen a wretched run of results ahead of the fixture, with Newcastle slumping to four straight league defeats and five in six.
Even worse, they’ve only managed two score twice in those half-dozen fixtures so the odds look favourable for Sturridge and co to resurrect their ailing top-four challenge.
Victory in the FA Cup quarter-final will have breathed some confidence back in to the Reds who had picked up a significant head wind before Manchester United and then Arsenal stopped them with a bump.
Sturridge may have struggled to reach the heady heights of last season since coming back from injury, but encouragingly for backers of this bet, three of his four goals have come at Anfield.
