Pool need to kill off the Black Cats to have any luck
Liverpool seem to go from the sublime to the ridiculous, a win at on-form Real Madrid was followed by a defeat to relegation threatened Middlesbrough.
Reds fans must be cursing the day Rafael Benitez had his rant about Alex Ferguson, since then Pool have seen their lead at the top-of-the-table disappear as Man United and Chelsea have both overtaken them and they currently sit in third place.
Sunderland will take confidence in the fact that the hosts have sometimes struggled to break teams down at home, drawing six times already this season and only winning two of their last six in front of their own fans, the home side are however still undefeated at Anfield this season.
A win is a must for the Reds if they're to have any chance of maintaining a title challenge and at odds of 1/3 for a home victory it's widely expected that they'll pick up all three points. Maybe correct score betting could prove more profitable with a repeat of last season's scoreline 3-0 available at 6/1. If you think the hosts will falter at home again then the draw could tempt you at 3/1. Ricky Sbragia's side are a massive 7/1 to return to the North East with all three points, it's extremely unlikely as the Black Cats haven't won on Merseyside since 1983.
Yossi Benayoun scored a dramatic winner against Real Madrid in the Champions League, but can he find the breakthrough in this game? He's 8/1 to score the first goal or 10/3 to score at anytime in the match. Dirk Kuyt has got seven league goals to his name this season and can be backed at 9/2 to grab the first goal and add to that tally or 5/4 to notch one at anytime of the game.
Djibril Cissé certainly knows how to score at Anfield, he bagged 24 goals in 78 games whilst playing for Benitez's team and has slotted in nine goals out of 22 starts this season. You can get odds of 7/1 on the Frenchman getting the first goal or 2/1 to strike at anytime in the match. Kenwyne Jones, with seven goals from 14 starts so far this season, is available at 8/1 to open the scoring and 11/4 to score at anytime in the game.
