Liverpool v Sunderland tips – Black Cats can avoid defeat
Liverpool typically short to claim victory against Sunderland
December 5th, 2014
Gus Poyet saw his Sunderland team lose 4-1 against Manchester City on Wednesday although the Black Cats have only lost four of their fourteen Premier League encounters this term.
On the road, they have avoided defeat in four of their six matches, with the 8-0 mauling at Southampton the low point of the season, although last weekend’s goalless draw against Chelsea illustrates that they can mix it with the best.
We think that Sunderland can get something at Anfield against a team who are far from convincing this season, despite recent wins against Stoke and Leicester.
The former victory was only achieved late in the game and Steven Gerrard may once again be rested for this encounter, with a Champions League clash against Basel fast on the horizon.
BetVictor offer 7/1 about a Sunderland victory although we like the visitors and the draw at odds of 17/10 with the same firm.
Liverpool are suspect defensively and will have one eye on next week’s crunch clash against Basel, with Paddy Power offering a best price 8/15 that the Reds win this game.
