Competition: Premier League
Market: Rickie Lambert to score anytime
Odds: 6/5 @ Ladbrokes
With Liverpool’s first Premier League game of the new season against Southampton, there are sure to be fireworks as the Reds signed three of their best players in the summer,
One of them, Adam Lallana, won’t be playing as he’s sidelined with injury. The other, Dejan Lovren, is expected to start at the heart of the defence, while Rickie Lambert could start on the bench. With only Daniel Sturridge as their chief attacking option for the Saints clash, there’s every chance Lambert could get on the pitch to score if Brendan Rodgers’ side are chasing the game.
Ladbrokes are giving odds of 6/5 for the 32-year-old to score against his former side today. Lambert has enjoyed two prolific campaigns in the Premier League, scoring 15 goals in his first season and 13 in 2013/14. Rodgers was willing to pay £4M this summer as he believes Lambert can be a useful squad player.
Southampton beat Liverpool the last time the two sides met at Anfield, so a revenge mission will be on the cards this afternoon.
