Premier League action resumes on Tuesday, May 1 with Liverpool taking on Fulham and Stoke City hosting Everton at the Britannia Stadium.
As usual, this segment will feature betting odds, match previews and match predictions for Tuesday’s fixtures.
Without further ado, let’s kick-off with the betting odds for tomorrow’s matches.
English Premier League Betting Odds: 1 May 2012
Bet of the Day: 1 May 2012
Tuesday’s bet of the day is under 2.5 total goals when Liverpool host Fulham at Anfield, paying 11/10 odds.
Preview: Liverpool v Fulham
Kenny Dalglish and Liverpool play host to Martin Jol’s Fulham on Tuesday, with the Reds surely eyeing three points ahead of their massive FA Cup final clash with Chelsea at the weekend.
Liverpool have been less than clinical at Anfield this season, scoring a meager 20 goals in 17 home matches. Meanwhile, Fulham have been absolutely anemic away from Craven Cottage in 2011-12, netting just 11 away goals in 17 English Premier League fixtures.
However, both clubs’ defences have been on solid form in 2011-12, so don’t expect a ton of goals at Anfield on Sunday.
FA Cup Tryouts
Tuesday’s match is a tryout of sorts for Liverpool, according to Kenny Dalglish.
“We’ve said to all of the players we want to give you the best possible chance to be available for selection on Saturday,” said King Kenny.
“We want the strongest possible squad we can to pick from for Saturday’s game, and there are many ways we can do it.
“If someone needs a break we’ll give them a break and if someone needs a game we will give them a game, because every single one of them are more than capable of playing in a cup final for this club.
“It’s going to be a difficult selection as it always is but it’s a difficult selection for Tuesday night as well. Everybody will be treated fairly and equally and everybody will be allowed to put their CV in for selection on Saturday.”
Which players will shine for the Reds on Tuesday? Suarez, Gerard and the back four are surely locks for Saturday’s FA Cup final, but the other spots are up for grabs when Liverpool battle Fulham.
Prediction: Liverpool v Fulham
Liverpool tally three points, 1-0 Reds.
Preview: Stoke City v Everton
David Moyes’ Everton travel to the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke City on Tuesday night.
Everton have been on a purple patch of late, tallying 11 points in their last five Premier League fixtures.
On the other side of the touchline, Stoke have just bagged five points out of their last 15 possible.
With that said, Stoke are unbeaten in their last five matches at the Britannia, while Everton have lost just once in their last five away games in the league.
All things considered, expect a hard-fought game, resulting in both sides earning a point.
Prediction: Stoke City v Everton
Nothing to separate the two sides, 1-1 draw.
