Reds looking to get points in the Baggies
Liverpool (2/5) take on West Brom (7/1, Draw 7/2) on Monday night hoping that the visiting strikers won't make the headlines for their goal scoring exploits. Peter Odemwingie makes his first appearance for the Baggies since the transfer deadline day debacle and is likley to receive a frosty welcome from both sets of fans.
Jamie Carragher (40/1 first/last 16/1 anytime) announced last week that he plans to retire at the end of the season so he is sure to receive a hero's welcome in his first game at Anfield since his announcement. The Liverpool legend who spent his career at the Reds and made 723 appearances, has been described as their best ever defender, high praise indeed, especially when it comes from his club and England captain Steven Gerrard.
Current Reds manager Brendan Rodgers said: "He is a real iconic player for this club and, for me, one which will be irreplaceable. He has been a giant for me since I came in here, an incredible man, he is one of a dying breed.
New signing Daniel Sturrage is to be assessed as to whether he can take his place in the starting line up after missing last week's international with a thigh injury, and winger Raheem Sterling (, who also withdrew from the England squad should be fit to face the Baggies. Philippe Coutinho has come in from Inter Milan but could need more time to make the transition.
Top scorer for the Reds by far and away this season is Luis Suarez with 22 goals in all competitions. The Uruguayan has averaged a shot every 21 minutes, a more prolific rate than any other player in the top flight. (He is 10/3 to score the first/last goal and 4/5 to score at anytime in the match). We have also enhanced the price on Suarez scoring in a Liverpool win from 5/4.
If Daniel Sturrage does play we have him at (7/2 first/last, 10/11 anytime). The ex -Chelsea man has scored in three of his four Premier League appearances for Liverpool. Reds captain Steven Gerrard has weighed in with the goals again this term and has 7 to his name so far. You can get (11/2 on him to score the first/last, 6/4 anytime).
Liverpool are turning Anfield into the fortress of old having won their last 3 games their without conceding a goal. For them to make it 4 on the trot we offer (10/11) for Liverpool to keep a clean sheet and (11/10) to win to nil.
West Brom are attempting to beat Liverpool home and away in the same season for the first time since 1966-67. They need to get their season back on track quickly, they have lost five and won none of their last six Premier League matches.
They need Odemwingie back in the side as soon as possible to halt their slide. They have missed his goals latley and for him to make amends in the best possible way, we go (12/1 first/last, 5/1 anytime). The loss of Goran Popov, sitting out following his sending off at Tottenham for spitting, has made that task all the harder. The left-back will start a 3match suspension.
However Baggies midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu (25/1 first/last, 8/1 anytime) is in contention to return to the starting line-up for the first time since the beginning of the year after returning to training this week following a knee problem.
West Brom have kept just one clean sheet in their last 29 Premier League away games but that was in their 1-0 win at Anfield in April 2012. To stop the Reds scoring this time round we are (13/2).
Liverpool haven't beaten any of the other teams in the top half of the Premier League this season going into this weekend so this would be a good time to start with the two teams separated by just 2 points. They have have scored the joint-most goals from outside the penalty area of any team in the top division (9), while West Brom had conceded the joint-most from long range going into the weekend (9, along with Norwich).
