Reds To Add To Black Cats Woes
Liverpool To Win To Nil
Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier has football betting advice for the Liverpool v Sunderland match, live at 8pm tonight on Sky Sports.
This match is of vital importance at both ends of the table as Liverpool can move up to second in the table and within one point of leaders Chelsea with a win, while success for the relegation threatened Black Cats would move them level on points with Crystal Palace and West Brom.
Liverpool continued their fantastic goal-scoring form to put six past Cardiff at the weekend and have now scored at least three goals in their last four Premier League games. A statistic which does not bode well for Gus Poyet’s side who have failed to score in three matches since their valiant effort in the Capital One Cup final.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “It looks as if things are going to get worse for Sunderland, but at least they still have a couple of games in hand on the teams around them at the bottom of the table. Liverpool are odds on 2/11 favourites to win tonight, so I’m going to suggest taking the even money at Skybet on them to win with a clean-sheet to squeeze some extra value out of the game.
The Reds have ambitions of their own and won’t be showing Sunderland any mercy, Correct Score punters might fancy odds of 7/1 with Bet365 on a 3-0 home win, while Raheem Sterling looks a good shout to score anytime at 11/5 with Ladbrokes.”
Brendan Rodgers is expected to keep the same system used against Cardiff, but Philippe Coutinho may make way for Raheem Sterling. Marcos Alonso is suspended following his red card against Norwich, so Jack Colback could be moved to left-back, but the big setback for Sunderland is Fabio Borini’s ineligibility against his parent club and he’ll be a big miss for the visitors.
