Liverpool Goal

Liverpool V Man United
Do you go with recent history of current form in this one. If you scan back of the previous five meetings between the clubs at Anfield, Liverpool haven’t lost. If you look at current form in the Premier League, then Manchester United clearly have an advantage. There will no doubt be a highly charged atmosphere on Sunday. Will Liverpool be able to post their first win of the season?

Liverpool v Man United Betting Odds at online bookmaker Paddy Power:
Liverpool 17/10, Man United 13/8, Draw 23/10

Verdict:
A match, which looking at things will probably be pretty close. Liverpool have done well at home against United in recent times, and have won four of the last five on home soil against Sir Alex Ferguson’s men. But they are not carrying any form,s coring just three and conceding eight this season in the league with two draws and two defeats. It hasn’t been an easy start for Brendan Rodgers, but he won’t need much of a motivational speech this week. The Reds will be up for this one, they always are. Liverpool’s home form against United can’t totally be dismissed here and it has happened for a reason, they raise their game for visits of United, even when their season hasn’t been going well. That will be a factor, but United have the far superior goal scoring power and there is a balanced feel about this game all the same. A 1-1 Correct Score for a price of 5/1 with online bookmaker Paddy Power (along with their Money Back Special) may not be too far away in this match.

Stat Attack:
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last five home games against the Red Devils
Robin van Persie has 4 goals in his last five against the Reds
Liverpool have won just two of the last eleven league games at Anfield
Man United have had seven different scores in the EPL this season, a league high

Head to Head:
So Liverpool have won four and drawn one of their last five home matches against the Red Devils. This match ended in a 1-1 draw last season and overall in the league meetings, United do lead the head to head by 61 wins to Liverpool’s 53. Liverpool have just found a way to eke out wins against Man United lately though, will they be able to repeat and get their season off and really running with a win? The two sides met three times last season, each earning a win along with that 1-1 draw at Anfield. Home advantage usually pays big in this fixture.

Liverpool v Man United Betting Preview:
Can Brendan Rodgers inspire his side to a first league win of the season? They needed a Luis Suarez strike to earn themselves a point away at Sunderland last weekend, and that was only their second point of the season. Worryingly it was only their third goal of the season, while their defences have been conceding at an average of two goals per game. The lack of power up front is a major concern and something that needs to be redressed. If Luis Suarez is having an off day then Liverpool haven’t got much to offer up front at all. At home this season they have managed just one point from six, and they have won just two of their last eleven matches at Anfield in the Premier League. Not a great stretch of form at all, but at least they can look at their recent home record against Sir Alex Ferguson’s men and be relatively content. The problems for Liverpool going forward can be clearly seen in their rating of a 27% shooting accuracy this season, which is the league worst. Liverpool can’t match United in terms of scoring power, so they are going to need a really big performance in midfield from Joe Allen and Steven Gerrard.

United meanwhile have been ticking along and have had seven different players on the score-sheet this season in the Premier League, a league high. After losing on Merseyside in their opening fixture against Everton this season, United have simply won matches that they should have won. Honestly they haven’t really been that convincing, but they know how grind out points. They have the quality of Robin van Persie as well who enjoys scoring against Liverpool and his link up play with Shinji Kagawa has just about been the brightest thing in United’s season so far. With Javier Hernandez also weighing in with two goals in his last two Anfield appearances, there are goals wherever you look in the United side. The same can’t be said of Liverpool and at the end of the day, that may be the difference. There are holes in the United back line and they have only kept one clean sheet in four league matches, but can Luis Suarez expose them?

Liverpool Goal

Liverpool V Young Boys Europa League
While the Premier League season may not be going as well as planned for new Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, there are some good omens ahead of Thursday’s opening Europa League fixture. Liverpool head to Berne to face Young Boys, with a 40 year unbeaten run against Swiss sides. This will be the first meeting between these two clubs though.

Liverpool v Young Boys Europa League Betting Odds at online bookmaker Bet365:
Liverpool 11/8, Young Boys 2/1, Draw 9/4

Verdict:
A match you would expect Liverpool to be able to negotiate without too much troubles, but they have troubles of their own. The Reds are without a win so far in the new Premier League season, and boss Brendan Rodgers saw his side have to work hard to get an equaliser against Sunderland on the weekend. Young Boys are eight games into their new domestic season and are sat in the middle of the table. So Liverpool shouldn’t have too much to worry about. They really need to find a solution to their lack of goalscoring though, as they have only netted three times in their four Premier League matches. This is a potential banana skin, but the Reds are probably worth backing to get a narrow result in a Liverpool One Goal Winning Margin for a price of 3/1 with online bookmaker Bet365.

Stat Attack:
Liverpool’s record against Swiss sides is W5 D2 L1
Liverpool’s record in Switzerland is W2 D1 L1
Young Boys have won eight, drawn two and lost one of their last 11 European matches
This is Liverpool’s 100th UEFA Cup match

Liverpool v Young Boys Betting Preview:
So Brendan Rodgers will be a little nervous about this one, as his side aren’t in the greatest form. They had to grind out a point at Sunderland on the weekend, and they have had nervy matches in Europe already. They narrowly beat Slovakian side Gomel 1-0 away from home, then the same scoreline saw them win at Hearts in Edinburgh. They were then pushed hard by the Scots back at Anfield in a 1-1 draw, which just saw Liverpool edge through on aggregate. So it hasn’t been convincing stuff from the Reds, and granted the boss hasn’t put out his strongest sides, but it will be important for the Premier League side to get off to a good start because there are tougher challenges to come in the group from Italian side Udinese and Russian Anzhi Makhachkala. Liverpool contested their first Europa League campaign in 2010/11 and only made it to the round of sixteen. The Reds are currently unbeaten in five European games.

The Swiss outfit have only met English opposition once before and that was in the 2010/11 Champions League play-offs. That was against Spurs and just a warning to Liverpool, they beat the Premier League side 3-2 in Berne before crumbling totally back in England in the return leg. The Young Boys reached the round of 32 in their only previous Europa League campaign back in 2010/11. They were on a ten match unbeaten streak in Europe until they lost against FC Midtylland in the play-offs, but they had done enough away from home to progress though. An average record in the league this season, they could give Liverpool at tough time, but will just be underdogs.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal)

Liverpool V Arsenal
Both of these giants are still looking to record their first wins of the season, so will something break here, or will the two take the share of the spoils? Both are looking to really kick start their season and have taken some disappointing results already this team. Liverpool have already came through one of the stiffest challenges in holding Man City to a draw, so will that give them the edge at Anfield on Sunday?

Liverpool v Arsenal Betting Odds at online bookmaker Paddy Power:
Liverpool Evens, Draw 12/5, Arsenal 11/4

Verdict:
The Gunners haven’t found the back of the net yet this season, while Liverpool did put in an improved performance against Manchester City last weekend. So the Reds may just have the edge in this one and why odds are leaning towards the home side. However, it will require them overturning some poor history against Arsenal. Six of the last ten matches between these two have ended in draws and it looks as if that is going to be a sound option against this time. However, there could be value in backing Arsenal in an +0.25 Asian Handicap for a price of 23/20 at online bookmaker Bet365 because the Gunners have good form against the Reds.

Stat Attack:

Arsenal have allowed the fewest amount of shots on goal in the EPL so far
The Gunners have drawn five of their last six Premier League matches
Liverpool have won just one of the last ten against Arsenal
Liverpool have just one home win in the last six in the EPL

Head to Head:
Liverpool have only won one of the last ten matches against Arsenal, drawing six and losing the other three. So not a great run of form against the Gunners. During the run of the last seven meetings between these two, there have been seven goals scored after the 90 minutes of regulation time. So expect some late drama as that has happened quite a bit here. In the last four meetings at Anfield, there have been two draws and two defeats for Liverpool.

Online bookmaker promotion:
Online bookmaker Paddy Power have a great money back special running for your Liverpool v Arsenal betting on Sunday. Liverpool may need a big game from captain Steven Gerrard, and if Gerrard scores at Anytime in the match, then online bookmaker Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer/Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast single bets placed on the match. Great coverage from the bookie, who also offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account with them.

Liverpool v Arsenal Betting Preview:
After taking a hammering against West Brom on the opening day of the season and having Daniel Agger sent off, Liverpool responded quite well with a much more composed performance against Man City. The Reds were a little unlucky not to come away from Anfield with a win on that occasion, as a defensive error from Martin Skrtel gifted City a point. However, the Reds stuttered again on Thursday night, as only a late strike by Luis Suarez meant that they avoided home defeat against Hearts in the Europa League. Just as West Brom had done against Liverpool, Hearts worked very hard through the middle of the park and didn’t let Liverpool get into too much a rhythm. But what may work in Liverpool’s favour is that they will be up against a passing side who won’t harass them so much when they are on the ball. Joe Allen looks an important part of the Liverpool side, when the former Swansea man is dictating things in the middle of the park, Liverpool look good. If he is not on the ball, then Liverpool lack. Liverpool’s form at Anfield isn’t great though, winning just one of their last six games at home and if they happen to suffer defeat on Sunday, then it will be their poorest start since the 1962-63 season.

Arsenal have recorded back to back 0-0 draws to kick the season off, not the confident start that Arsene Wenger will have wanted in the post Robin van Persie era. In their opening fixture of the season, Arsenal struggled to carve out any decent chances against Sunderland, and were frustrated last weekend against Stoke as well. But Arsenal did look much better going forward after Wenger had changed things up, they looked to be a bit more cohesive and it doesn’t look as if too much more is needed before the new forward line with Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud start knocking in the goals. Some have questioned Arsenal’s selling this summer, with Alex Song also departing there is a transition period here for the Gunners. But there are positives to take, even though Arsenal have now drawn five of their last six Premier League matches. Defensively, the Gunners have looked far more sound than they have done for a long time and have allowed the fewest amount of shot on their goal out of all Premier League teams this season. If the forwards can just start scoring without sacrificing defence, Arsenal should have a very good balance to them.

Jordan Henderson - Andy Carroll (Liverpool)

Liverpool v Hearts betting will see the battle of Britain continue in the Europa League Play Off, with the Reds taking a narrow advantage back to Anfield with them. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers saw his understrength side come back from Scotland with a 1-0 win, courtesy of an own goal by the home side. The Reds had found the going tough, as expected, against Hearts who spurned some good first half chances to get a grip of the match. Some of Liverpool’s key players like Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez were taking a rest, and the Reds came under fire with goalkeeper Pepe Reina being busy. The game would have taken on a totally different context if the home side’s forwards had brought their shooting boots.

But Liverpool gradually worked their way into the game, with youngster Raheem Sterling looking the bright spark and a tremendous talent once again. The breakthrough for Liverpool came when Martin Kelly’s cross hit Hearts’ Andy Webber and deflected into the net. As much as Hearts tried to push forward for an equaliser, they couldn’t get the breakthrough and now the advantage firmly lies with the Reds. Liverpool have an important away goal and they should get their foot on the ball and be able to control the pace of the game better at Anfield. The visitors have to come at them at some point and that should just open the doors for Liverpool. The Reds almost took three points off Man City in the Premier League on Sunday, a late defensive error by Martin Skrtel gifting City a goal which shared a point. The Reds this week captured midfielder Nuri Sahin on loan.

City, although they will be without Sergio Aguero have all the aces up their sleeve when it comes to goalscoring power. If they get themselves in front, will Liverpool be able to muster up a response?

So this provides some nice coverage for your betting on this one and over in the First Goalscorer market Carlos Tevez is trading as outright favourite for a price of 6/1.

Liverpool Steven Gerrard

 

Liverpool V Man City
A mouthwatering clash for Sunday’s small Premier League fixture list. Liverpool of course had a terrible start to the new season, getting crushed 3-0 by West Brom, while Man City had to pull out all the stops to battle their way past a spirited Southampton This is the first away test of the season for City, can they impress against the Reds?

 

Liverpool v Man City Betting Odds at online bookmaker Paddy Power:
Man City 6/4, Liverpool 15/8, Draw 9/4

 

Verdict:
Out of the two sides, the natural tendency will be to lean towards the reigning Champions Manchester City. That is because they just look as if they have a lot of goals in them, and in the Community Shield and their opening EPL fixture, they have produced some immense passages of play. Liverpool in a way, are not going to cause the City back line as many problems as Southampton did. That is because the Saints were direct, Liverpool won’t be and it will be easier for City to dictate the pace. The visitors have a lot more match winners in their ranks at the end of the day and that is why City are heading into this one as favourite to take the three points. A Manchester City -0.75 Asian Handicap for a price of 7/4 at online bookmaker Bet365 looks a decent call.

 

Stat Attack:
Man City won just one of four meetings between the two sides last season
City have not won at Anfield in ten attempts
Four of the last five matches at Anfield between the two have ended in draws
There was a 1-1 result in the corresponding fixture last season

 

Head to Head:
Liverpool do have a strong head to head record against Manchester City at Anfield. The Reds have won 48 of 82 matches, while City have managed just 14 wins there. City have not recorded a win at Anfield in the last ten matches there, the last victory coming at the end of the 2003 season. So a strong record for Liverpool, but could it give them the edge on Sunday?

 

Online bookmaker promotion:
Online bookmaker Paddy Power have a Money Back Special running for your Liverpool v Man City betting on Sunday. If Luis Suarez or Carlos Tevez scores the final goal of the matches, then Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct score and Scorecast single bets placed on the match. The popular bookie offers a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account with them. The bookie will match the value of your first stake on a new account.

 

Liverpool v Man City Betting Preview:
The Reds need to avoid defeat, that pretty much seems to be the order of business for them on Sunday. The Reds crashed at West Brom on the opening day of the season, losing three nil and most of the damage was self inflicted. The Reds gave away two penalty kicks and had Daniel Agger sent off in the match. Further causing their ruination was the fact that they were, once again, wasteful in front of goal. Liverpool did create some chances, but with Luis Suarez off target and substitute Andy Carroll failing to make any impact, Liverpool struggled. Perhaps one of the biggest areas of concern was that the Liverpool midfield was out smarted by that of the Baggies. Steven Gerrard was almost anonymous, while débutante Joe Allen could not get himself into the game. Liverpool beat Hearts in the Europa League on Thursday night, but will get Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson back into the side after being rested. Time is going to be needed for new Reds boss Brendan Rodgers to get his system going. A second defeat in a row though would have more impatient fans on his back.

 

Man City have far more options going forward than Liverpool. They will be without their star striker Sergio Aguero though who has a knee injury. City have also shipped off winger Adam Johnson to Sunderland. But they still have tremendous talent to call upon and the key to their success could be David Silva, who pulls all the strings for City. The City defence was very good on the road last season and while they were opened up by Southampton on the opening day, City proved just why they are Champions. They fought back from a 2-1 deficit and had enough fire-power to call upon in times of need. That could be the difference between the two sides, because Liverpool do not have that same kind of luxury.

Liverpool Steven Gerrard

Liverpool v Gomel Europa League betting sees the second leg of the qualifier get underway on Thursday night. Liverpool’s new manager Brendan Rodgers saw his side edge out a win in his first competitive match in charge, but it wasn’t a convincing win at all. A goal in the second half from Stewart Downing was Liverpool’s only reward on quite a tricky night away in Belarus against Gomel, and the Premier League side was given a good run for their money. Downing’s shot was Liverpool’s only effort of note on goal. It was quite a strong Liverpool line up which took on Gomel with the likes of Jamie Garragher, Martin Skrtel and Steven Gerrard all starting the game. Rodgers did give Joe Cole a start, but he limped off injured after 23 minutes which won’t have done his chances of muscling his way in the Premier League starting eleven much good. Others like Jay Spearing and Fabio Borini got a look in as well, but the work rate of the Belarus side was much higher than that of Liverpool’s.

Liverpool will get their Olympic representatives, Luis Suarez and Craig Bellamy back, and Andy Carroll is still at the club, despite transfer rumours. Carroll sat out the first leg because of a groin strain. Naturally it will take a little time for Liverpool to settle into the new system and style that Brendan Rodgers is going to implement at Anfield, and the Reds looked as if they were sadly lacking any creativity without Suarez in the side. So there are still pieces of the puzzle to fix for Rodgers but at least they got a win under their belt. While Gomel were really up for the challenge of Liverpool on their home soil, having 18 shots at goal to Liverpool’s seven and taking 45% of possession, it is unlikely that they are going to cause any big shock upset. Not at Anfield. Liverpool have the resources to negotiate their way safely through this Europa League encounter.

Europa League

Liverpool v Gomel Europa League betting sees the unspectacular start to the Reds season in Europe. This is the third qualifying round of the Europa League and naturally it will be played over two legs, with the first coming in Belarus. Firstly there is still much transfer speculation up in the air surrounding Liverpool, with Alberto Aquilani apparently on the brink of a move to Fiorentina, a move which has been denied by his agent. Liverpool have also still been aggressively trying to sign Swansea’s midfielder Joe Allen, ruffling some feathers at the Welsh club, but grabbing all the headlines has been Andy Carroll. Brendan Rodgers does not appear to have too much use for the 23 year old, and apparently a loan deal with West Ham was agreed for him. However, according to some reports, Carroll himself has rejected the offer, preferring, if he has to leave Anfield, for it to be a move back to Tyneside to join back up with Newcastle.

New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been sizing up his squad during pre-season, not having had a lot of access to his main stars for one reason or another. It is unlikely that he is really going to need to call on too many of them to face FC Gomel on Thursday. Can Rodgers deliver the glory days back to Liverpool? Well, he will inject a bit of style into the side, style which has been sadly lacking for the past few seasons. Rodgers likes his sides to excel at Stamina, while Liverpool fans will be hoping that Swansea’s wonderful passing game which Rodgers implemented at the Welsh club, will translate over to the Anfield squad. Rodgers has been very good at integrating youngsters and developing younger talent, and the future doesn’t look too bad at Anfield in that respect.

While the new possession and movement style will gradually creep into Liverpool, the one issue that they do need to solve quickly is how to score more goals. Whether Andy Carroll or Craig Bellamy can do enough for them in support of Luis Suarez remains to be seen, and how much can new signing Fabio Borini really deliver? Liverpool still only managed two goals during pre-season, and they will quickly need to find someone to rely on up front.

Liverpool Goal

Liverpool v Roma betting sees the Premier League side continue their pre-season preparations. With new manager Brendan Rodgers at the helm, in his first match in charge he could only watch as his side drew 1-1 with MLS side Toronto on Saturday. It wasn’t anywhere near as strong of a Liverpool side as you will see in the Premier League, as Rodgers has pretty much had to turn to the youth Academy to fulfil the obligations of the pre-season matches. There were a handful of bigger established names in the ranks like Alberto Aquilani, Charlie Adam and Joe Cole, but all of them looked a yard short of pace and struggled to get in the game at all. The match also signalled a return from midfielder Lucas, who has been trying to recover from a cruciate injury for the last seven months or so. So these are nothing but baby steps for Rodgers in his new role, but at least it gives him a chance at looking at the future of the club, and there is a lot of excitement and expectation about 17 year old Raheem Sterling, who scored the equaliser against Toronto.

Liverpool’s Euro 2012 contingent turned up a couple of days after their opening match, so they have been without them. Star striker Luis Suarez is also absent because of his role with Uruguay at the London 2012 Olympics. So no-one knows if any of the late arrivals to the tour party are really going to be fit or match sharp to swing straight into action against Roma. Steven Gerrard and co may be rested, perhaps given a substitutes role because there are more pressing things ahead like their Europa League qualifier on August 2nd. Rodgers has faced this problem of only really having most of the reserves to train with during his short stint at Anfield so far. While Charlie Adam and Joe Cole didn’t really do themselves any favour in trying to lock down a starting place next season, there were some positives for Liverpool as the established players in the side against Toronto were out-shone by youngster like Suso, Jordan Ibe and Raheem Sterling.

So the future of Liverpool doesn’t look to bad. All they really did against Toronto was try and keep position, much in Swansea’s style of last season. But the Reds didn’t have any penetration against the MLS side at all. Roma finished seventh in last season’s Serie A and therefore missed out on a place in Europe next season. The Italians have a pretty solid side and they have been breezing through their pre-season friendlies. Not that they have played anyone of any note so far on their 2012 US Tour. They beat a Romanian Club side, Rapid Vienna and then a Polish club side. So not exactly stern tests, but they are working their way towards next season like everyone else. So perhaps nothing too much for a solid Liverpool side to worry about, but it may not be that strong of a Liverpool side which turns up.

Andy Carroll (Liverpool)

New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will get a look at his squad as they face off against FC Toronto on Saturday. This is part of the Herbalife World Football Challenge out in North America at the moment. This is the first time during pre-season that Liverpool will have been out in action, and it starts a busy week of action for them. After meeting with Toronto, Liverpool then face off against strong Italian outfit Roma, before playing Tottenham in their final pre-season friendly. That is all in the space of a week, so there will, no doubt, be plenty of squad rotation coming from the Reds. The biggest story coming from Anfield this summer, is the saga over England forward Andy Carroll. Carroll’s former club Newcastle have been trying to get him back on loan, while West Ham and AC Milan have also reportedly been interested in getting him. But the clearest picture, despite Brendan Rodgers saying that Carroll remains a Liverpool player, is that Liverpool don’t really want him. It was revealed that Rodgers may be open to loaning Carroll out under the right circumstances, but now the club have said that they will sell him for £20 million.

The problem for Carroll, is not only that he hasn’t performed or produced the goods for Liverpool, but that his style won’t fit in with Rodgers. Rodgers is the one who got Swansea City playing such attractive football, and that is the ethos which he will want to install at Liverpool as quickly as possible. So he needs players who are comfortable with the ball at their feet and forwards who can create themselves space to run on to passes on the deck. That’s not Carroll’s forte. Still his performances at Euro 2012 will keep enough clubs interested in him, and with Liverpool signing Fabio Borini and actively trying to sign Clint Dempsey from Fulham, there isn’t going to be much room for Carroll at Anfield. So Rodgers will start looking hard at his squad, starting with their fixture in Canada against MLS side FC Toronto as they start their warm ups ahead of the new season.

What kind of challenge can they expect? Well the Canadian side are really nothing to fear for Liverpool. Toronto FC are sitting bottom of the Eastern Conference in the MLS, winning just five of their twenty matches so far. Their defence has not been very good at all this season, and they have been under the guidance of a new coach for just ten matches now. So the Premier League side will be favourites to take the spoils in Liverpool v FC Toronto betting, despite the Canadians having a bit of a resurgence with three wins on the bounce in the MLS. It should be a good physical pre-season work out for Liverpool if nothing else.
