It seems ever since he announced he would be leaving Liverpool at the end of the season, Steven Gerrard has been out to bid Anfield farewell in the most memorable way possible.
The Liverpool skipper has been electric for the Reds in the last few games, and was instrumental in avoiding a shock against AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup last week.
His two goals at Kingsmeadow were his third and fourth strikes in two games, so it is no wonder that the Anfield legend is the subject of Ladbrokes’ latest price boost.
As he leads his team out at the Stadium of Light, we have boosted the price on ‘Stevie G’ opening the scoring from 7/1 out to a huge 10/1!
This price is not one to miss out on, and you’d be mistaken to think he saves his best for in front of the Kop.
Of Gerrard’s last 20 goals in the Premier League for his club, 12 have come away from the confines of Anfield, so he is more than capable of putting in a performance on the road.
And with Liverpool bagging two or more in five of their last six matches in all competitions, their mercurial leader will get plenty of chances to shine against a side that have conceded eight in one match this season.
The Reds historically done well against Sunderland, especially since ‘that’ beach ball incident, winning three of the last four, opening the scoring in the same number.
And who opened the scoring in their most recent victory over the Black Cats in March? None other than Steven Gerrard.
Don’t miss out on this price while the 34-year-old is in this rich vein of form.
