Competition: Premier League
Market: Liverpool to win against Stoke City
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365
Liverpool have a tricky trip to face Stoke City this afternoon, with the Reds having nightmares of their last meeting against the Potters that saw them comprehensively thrashed in their final game of the previous campaign.
This time, however, there’s some optimism with the Merseysiders having worked hard to fix their defensive woes from the last two years. Manager Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to take advantage of Stoke not having captain Ryan Shawcross in the defence, which could prove pivotal.
Liverpool are slim favourites to come out on top with their side full of attacking talent and pace, while Stoke could suffer after having also lost influential midfielder Steven N’Zonzi this summer. As a result, the visitors have a real chance to kick off the new season with all three points, and Rodgers knows he must deliver.
Bet 365 are backing the Reds with odds of 5/4 for Liverpool to come away with the points despite being the away side, as Stoke’s absentees could well play into the visitors’ hands this afternoon.
