Liverpool v West Brom betting tips – Reds to scrape home at Anfield
The return of Daniel Sturridge can help Liverpool to a much-needed three points
October 3rd, 2014
Liverpool were expecting a better return than seven points from six games, with the Reds having taken just a point from their last three matches and Brendan Rodgers will hope that Daniel Sturridge can return firing on all cylinders.
Rodgers has blocked Sturridge from going on international duty next week and he might risk the forward from kick-off in this match, with Mario Balotelli firing blanks and Rickie Lambert yet to score since arriving from Southampton.
All is not well at Anfield although they haven’t become a bad team overnight and BetVictor go 9/20 that they claim a maximum haul against a West Brom team enjoying something of a resurgence.
The Baggies looked like potential relegation fodder a fortnight ago, although a win at White Hart Lane was followed up by a 4-0 thrashing of Burnley and they will be under no pressure when heading to Merseyside this weekend.
Having seen Aston Villa win at Anfield recently, some might fancy the 7/1 about the Midlands side piling more misery on Liverpool, with Albion now enjoying three straight wins thanks to their 3-2 League Cup win against Hull City.
Saido Berahino has scored five times this season and the England forward might enjoy himself against a Liverpool defence who don’t keep clean sheets, with the draw on offer at 4/1.
We think the best bet could be both teams scoring, with Mario Balotelli determined to silence his doubters following criticism of the signing, while Sturridge can provide an extra dimension to the home team’s attacking play.
