JURGEN KLOPP vented his fury about having to play at Brighton at 12.30pm today and claimed he could just hand them the points.
No one believed that for a moment but what the German did was rest players on Wednesday and see a makeshift side go down tamely to Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Liverpool made five changes and fielded three teenagers with the likes of star trio Andy Robertson, Fabinho and Diogo Jota left out.
Klopp explained they'd be needed “a few hours later” in the Premier League and victory on the south coast will in some part justify his selection.
Jota has been on fire and will be raring to go again. Liverpool failed to have a shot on target against Atalanta despite starting Mo Salah and Sadio Mane so let's go with Jota to score at 6-4 with William Hill.
Man City's 1-0 win at Olympiakos was easier than the scoreline suggested and Pep Guardiola insists his side are ready to hammer someone.
That someone could be Burnley today although the Turf Moor men will be feeling better after picking up a first win of the season against Crystal Palace.
City are no bigger than 1-6 to take the points but should cover the -1 handicap at 1-2 with bet365.
After back-to-back 4-1 defeats Leeds arrested the slump with a draw against Arsenal but I fancy the Toffees and it's difficult to ignore Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score first at 4-1 with bet365.
The big game tomorrow sees Jose Mourinho return to Stamford Bridge having resdiscovered his mojo.
Spurs are genuine title contenders and Mourinho could revert to type by trying to frustrate Frank Lampard's men.
In the Championship best bets on Saturday are Watford at home to injury-hit Preston and high-flying Bournemouth at Rotherham.
