Crystal Palace v Liverpool tips – Sterling can steal the points
Liverpool set to land three points against Palace although they are no value to win
November 21st, 2014
Liverpool have won just four of their eleven Premier League encounters this season although it hasn’t stopped the bookies making them strong favourites to claim three points in this encounter.
Indeed, the Reds have lost their last three matches in all competitions, with two Premier League reverses sandwiching the reserves’ defeat at the Bernabeu in the Champions League.
Therefore, the 19/20 best price is still a touch skinny even if William Hill deserve credit for those particular odds, with Liverpool having won two and lost three of their five road trips this term.
A 3-0 triumph at White Hart Lane suggested that the Reds could be back in business although defeats at Upton Park and St James’ Park suggest otherwise, with a 3-2 triumph at Loftus Road certainly falling into the lucky bracket.
However, the chances are that Liverpool can defeat an ailing Palace side who lost their last home match by a 3-1 scoreline to Sunderland and appear to be going backwards since Tony Pulis left the club.
Raheem Sterling was used sparingly for the England match in Glasgow and perhaps it’s time for the youngster to once again shine, with Paddy Power going 13/2 about the forward scoring the first goal.
Sterling looks set to operate in an advanced position now that Daniel Sturridge has been ruled out for another six weeks, with Steven Gerrard among those players likely to be fresh after a fortnight’s break since the last match.
Some are claiming that Palace are a big price at 7/2 with William Hill although this is more a reaction to the Liverpool odds than any real conviction that this team can land the spoils.
