There is live action from the Premier League on Monday night as Liverpool welcome West Bromwich Albion to Anfield. The Reds are looking to extend a decent run of form that has seen them earn creditable draws at Arsenal and Manchester City in recent matches and they are odds on to beat a West Brom side who have endured a torrid few weeks.
The Baggies are sliding down the table after a quite brilliant start to the season and morale at the club hasn't been helped by the bizarre Peter Odemwingie transfer saga, while Goran Popov's red card for spitting was an embarrassment for the club. It leaves Steve Clarke with a tough job to lift his troops and they go in as 8/1 outsiders with Betfred for Monday.
It is Liverpool who are 2/5 odds on favourites and they have bounced back impressively from their FA Cup defeat to Oldham. They have drawn 2-2 with Arsenal and Man City respectively and Daniel Sturridge has struck up an exciting partnership with Luis Suarez. Sturridge has weighed in with three goals in four league appearances since moving from Chelsea and he is sure to attract interest in the first scorer market.
Sturridge is 7/2 to be first goalscorer and Fred are offering to double your odds if your correct first scorer pick goes on to score another and they will treble your odds if he goes on to score a hat-trick. Liverpool have certainly been in fine scoring form of late as they have scored in each of their last 12 outings and they can take advantage of a porous West Brom defence.
West Brom have kept just one clean sheet in their last 29 away league matches, including none this season, and Liverpool are 11/8 to score three or more goals in Sunday's match. That could be worth a look as Liverpool's last three games at home have seen them beat Fulham 4-0, Sunderland 3-0 and Norwich 5-0.
They have obviously kept clean sheets in each of those three and they have now kept a clean sheet in five of their last six at Anfield. They are 5/4 to win to nil on Monday and that could be worth a look as the Baggies have failed to score in five of the last six Liverpool v West Brom fixtures on Merseyside.
West Brom face a real task to lift themselves after a torrid few weeks at the club, during which they have lost five of their last six. Their only positive result came in the form of a 2-2 draw at home to lowly Aston Villa but they are now winless in eight in all competitions. Their 3-0 win over Liverpool on the opening day of the season at the Hawthorns must seem like a lifetime ago and the Reds could exact revenge on Monday.
Liverpool are 9/1 to win 3-0 as they bid to beat a team in the top-half of the league for the first time this season. Their new found scoring ability ensures they will be a real threat against a struggling West Brom side and Betfred go 19/20 that Liverpool win the match with a -1 goal handicap.
