IT’S one of the most famous football derbies in the world – and Marathonbet is celebrating by offering a HUGE 5/1 on Liverpool to score at ANY TIME on Sunday.
That’s right. New customers can get 5/1 on Liverpool to stick one past Everton at any point during the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park, something the Reds have done in ten of their last 15 visits to the ground. Thank us later!
The pressure on Brendan Rodgers has ever so slightly eased following the 3-2 win over Aston Villa at Anfield last weekend. But defeat in the old enemy’s back yard on Sunday could leave Liverpool fans reaching for the pitch forks.
The good news for Rodgers is that Everton haven’t beaten Liverpool at home since a 2-0 win in October 2010. England man Daniel Sturridge is also back in the fray and picking up where he left off before injury – scoring goals. He’s 28/5 to score first on Sunday and 17/10 to score any time.
The bad news is Roberto Martinez’s side haven’t lost in the Premier League since a mid-August defeat to rampant Manchester City and have already seen off Chelsea at Goodison this campaign.
Everton are a healthy 5/3 with Marathonbet to take all three points while Liverpool are 13/7, but one glaring statistic is too big to ignore: the two sides have DRAWN five of the last six meetings against each other. A repeat on Sunday is a particularly tasty 61/25 and the 2-2 correct score is 12/1.
Tens of thousands of scousers will pack the stands of Goodison Park to cheer their teams on, but there will be a distinct lack of Liverpudlian spirit on the pitch. Stevie G’s departure to the bright lights of LA means it will be the first time Liverpool have not started with a local-born player in a Merseyside derby since the 1986 FA Cup Final.
If you think a lack of scouser-pride could leave Liverpool vulnerable to the roar of Goodison, take a punt on Everton to run riot and win 3-0 at 33/1.
