Competition: Premier League
Market: Christian Benteke to score anytime
Odds: 8/11 @ Coral
Liverpool striker Christian Benteke is expected to spearhead the Reds’ attack against AFC Bournemouth tonight, and will be hoping to get off the mark at Anfield. The Belgian international, 24, signed from Aston Villa this summer for around £30M, and was identified by manager Brendan Rodgers as a secondary option to injury-prone Daniel Sturridge.
Benteke has hit double figures for goals in the last three Premier League seasons, and he scored an impressive goal in pre-season in a Liverpool shirt too, so expectation is high on him to deliver. He didn’t net in the Merseysiders’ opening league outing against Stoke City, but he could have an easier time on home soil where Liverpool will dominate possession.
Rodgers’ men are one of only a small handful of sides currently enjoying a 100% record in the Premier League, and such momentum should be of a benefit for Benteke is his pursuit of a debut goal. The 24-year-old will certainly get chances at home to deliver, and Coral are giving odds of 8/11 for the Belgian international to find the back of the new against Liverpool’s newly-promoted counterparts this evening.
