Liverpool take on FC Utrecht at Anfield this evening safe in the knowledge that they have already guaranteed themselves top spot in Europa League Group K .
Roy Hodgson will take the opportunity to play the youngsters with Jonjo Shelvey , Martin Kelly and Dani Pacheco all likely to be given a run out . Following the disappointment of the 3-1 defeat to Newcastle on Sunday , Liverpool need to regain their momentum in the Premier League quickly and Hodgson will have more than one eye on Saturday’s home game with Fulham .
Utrecht also have little to play for but are likely to start with star striker Ricky Van Wolfswinkel and will have a side with alot more resemblance to theit first eleven than Liverpool will .
The earlier Group K game between these two teams ended goaless and it would be no suprise to see a repeat of that scoreline again this evening .
Utrecht can be backed at odds of over 8/1 on Betfair and that may be worth a small interest whilst a 0-0 correct score is available at around 15/1 .
Irish bookie Paddy Power offer Utrecht with a goal start on the handicap at odds of 15/8 which is worth taking . With this bet Utrech and the draw are both winners and 15/8 represents good value .
The match is live on Channel 5 from 8pm
