AT Anfield today we may find out if Liverpool can win the Premier League.

If Brendan Rodgers’s side beat Man City in their biggest test of the season they’ll be installed as hot favourites to end 24 years of agony.

It’s been 25 years of pain for everyone associated with the Hillsborough disaster and of course the anniversary will be marked on an emotional afternoon.

Will the Reds follow up with a win that will leave just Chelsea in their way on the route to glory?

Liverpool tempt at a best 7-5 at William Hill and I don’t think they’ll lose. If they play their usual game – and they’ve won all four meetings at home to top-seven sides – they should win against a side who could crucially be missing their best defender in Vincent Kompany.

It’s likely to be a nervy occasion – as several meetings of the top sides have been this season – so a draw is a possibility and I’ll also be on Liverpool not to lose at 4-9 (Coral).

Rodgers’s side will be at full strength while the key could be the fitness of Kompany and Yaya Toure who both have had knocks. If they don’t shake off injury I’d edge even more towards Liverpool and there is a chance of a return for Sergio Aguero who has been badly missed.

Liverpool were unlucky to lose 2-1 at the Etihad and the way both sides go there could be plenty of goals. Over 2.5 pays just 11-20 (Ladbrokes) and the likes of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge will be thrilled if Kompany is absent.

I like the chances of Steven Gerrard to net at any time. He potted two penalties at West Ham last week and the Reds have been awarded 12 spot-kicks this season – the most in the league. Gerrard is 11-4 (Coral) to score.

Chelsea should see off Swansea with the minimum of fuss and are 3-4 (bet365) to win. The Blues know something has to give at Anfield and they can't afford a slip-up if they want back into the title race.

Recommended Bets

Liverpool (4.07pm)
(7-5, William Hill)

Gerrard to score
(11-4, Coral)

Chelsea (1.37pm)
(3-4, bet365)

    Apparently Kompany will play Mr F as he has recovered from the training knock he suffered today. I think Liverpool at 7/5 will still be a good price to take but with Kompany in, I don’t think it’ll be the goal fest I know some people are tipping.

      Alex, OK – I read he wouldn’t make it but you never know these days. Will keep an eye on it but sticking with Liverpool.

    It’s Kolo Toure that might decide this game more than Yaya, I’ve read a few different reports stating Toure may well start for Liverpool. He must fill the Liverpool supporters with dread when they see him walk on the pitch.
    I was firmly on the fence for this one, now I’m swinging towards Man City. As good as Liverpool are going forward you’ve got to worry about their defence, especially if Kolo plays.
    For me I think it’ll be City DNB to be safe.

    I’m pretty confident on both teams scoring. Liverpool have been attacking unbelievably well over the past months but their defence isn’t the strongest and they concede quite a lot. Secondly it’s Man city we’re talking about here and with the talent they have on offer it’s hard to see past both teams notching.

  4. darran 7 years ago

    mr f my opinion chelsea certs prob 0-4 or 1-4 seriously

  5. Hoosha 7 years ago

    Just to point out Mr F. that the Liverpool game is the early kickoff and Chelsea start at 4.

    Liverpool : fighting for justice for 25 years
    : fighting for the title for 24 years

    Both teams to score and Liverpool win 3/1 @ williamhill

    • shaky 7 years ago

      this is the first time in about a decade that Liverpool have been fighting for the title. City to nick this i think.

    Well done Gunners and Wenger.Wenger finally went positive yesterday starting with sanogo,and then having two forwards,showed he went for it, even arteta started to fight in the second half and win balls.But arsenal drawing lost me winnings of 2k yesterday. Today I can see Valencia,Hull,athletico Madrid winning and I’ll add ac Milan or PSG onto that,depending on team news.Does anyone have any news on Milan or PSG?

  8. John 7 years ago

    Liverpool v man city is so hard to call anything can happen.I think the best best is either both teams to score or over 2.5 goals.

  9. Stueyd 7 years ago

    I like the look of btts in first half with bet 365 13/5. Think we will see fast paced end to end first half.

  10. cally g 7 years ago

    man city (+1) vs liverpool (3/5) and doubling up with cheslea

    defo cant see liverpool after there west ham performance. the didnt deserve anything from that game. well man city are about 3 levels better than west ham so liverpool dont have a prayer

    this is the game were liverpool realise that the league is too big for them

    and chelsea is a dead cert i think . maybe 1-0 2-0

    • paddy gooner 7 years ago

      fully agree cally. man city machine will prob get this one, and chelsea win by one goal.

  11. Zoobsk 7 years ago

    Kompany and Aguero are both set to be playing.

    I am backing City

  12. robbie d 7 years ago

    Bets:
    Liverpool win and btts 3/1
    Gerrard to score a penalty about 7/1 but can’t find odds right now
    Gerrard motm 11/1 Betfred

    Not sure about Chelsea, really bad away form of late

  13. paddy gooner 7 years ago

    What Hoosha said – got yer times mixed up MrF – Liverpool at 1:37 and Chelsea 4:07. Being an Arsenal fan I hope they both lose! Being a gambler my money is on Gerrard anytime and Chelsea away win. Being a fantasy manager I’ve got Aguero, Dzeko, Yaya and Suarez (captain). An interesting day awaits.

    This is the biggest game of the year in the Premier League. I expect it to be very tight and whilst most punters are going for one or the other, I will be backing a draw, which I think is most likely and its at the best odds for match result (as usual). I’ll even have small stakes on 0-0 @20/1 just because these hyped up games do finish 0-0 often. Cant see that coming in though, I’m thinking more of a 2-2 game. I also think Yaya Toure will run the game in Midfield, he’s got too much quality on his day for any of the Liverpool midfielders and could be a massive impact on the result today. He is also @21/10 to score anytime, which I will have a bet on.

  15. Ricky C 7 years ago

    Just noticed too that Man City (+1)/Double Chance is @8/13 which I think is a huge price, considering they are usually odds a lot lower to just win.

  16. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    For big games I like to look for value on the Goalscorer markets. Considering Skrtel’s goalscoring record this season, he represents excellent value to score anytime with Coral generously offering double the odds of most other bookies who go 8/1 for him anytime. Goals may come from set pieces and going by his price I think Coral May have overlooked him in the goalscoring market.

    Martin Skrtel First Goalscorer @ 40/1 Coral
    Martin Skrtel Anytime Goalscorer @ 16/1 Coral

    Good luck everyone.

  17. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Kompany starts and Aguero is on the bench

  18. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Confirmed #LFC team v @MCFC: Mignolet, Johnson, Flanagan, Sakho, Skrtel, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Sterling, Suarez, Sturridge

  19. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Confirmed @MCFC team v #LFC: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy, Toure, Fernandinho, Navas, Nasri, Silva, Dzeko

  20. Sanj 7 years ago

    Everyone expects a high scoring game and rightly so but often we can be surprised. cue 0-0. No goalscorer 10/1 or slightly safer under 2.5 goals 6/4. Possible draw 1-1 pays 7/1

  21. lord clegg 7 years ago

    Great tip Chris guy_ glad I took your advice!

  22. Stevie H 7 years ago

    22/1 at h/t for City, said to a guy in the pub worth a cheecky fiver….what a total crap bag I am for not putting it on! Hope they dont win it now lol

  23. Stevie H 7 years ago

    Chris, wish I seen your post earlier on, always good for a goal Big Skertel, huge price aswell
