Liverpool have started the season with four points from two games which isn’t a bad return at all from Sunderland at home and Arsenal away and the home game against Bolton this weekend will provide Liverpool with another good opportunity to chalk up more points. In a season where no sides outside of Manchester look particularly strong, there are plenty of places near the top of the league up for grabs so every point is crucial.
Going from last season’s evidence there should be plenty of hope Liverpool can pick up a win on Saturday in the televised evening kick off. This game sees one of the best home sides in the Premiership take on one of the worst travellers. Liverpool had the fourth best home record last season with 12 wins and just 3 losses from their 19 games whilst were the worst away side in the league, winning just 2 matches on the road and picking up just 11 points in total away from home.
This is reflected somewhat in the odds for the match, at the time of writing Liverpool are available at 4/9 to win the match which is a fair price but unlikely to make you rich. Bolton are available at 7/1 whilst the draw is priced up at 7/2. From the evidence so far this season there is cause for supporting a high scoring match on Saturday, Bolton’s two matches so far this season have provided 9 goals so over 2.5 goals will surely be popular at 7/10.
Luis Suarez has scored both Liverpool’s goals this season that haven’t been scored by the opposition, he will surely be restored to the starting line up after changing the game at the Emirates Stadium having come off the bench. The bookies make him 7/2 favourite to open the scoring at Anfield on Saturday, or should we be backing Andy Carroll to finally come good and score first at 4/1?
How do we think the game is going to develop? Will it be a high scoring game and if it is, what will the correct score be? The win against Arsenal was a crucial one but are the bookies right to make Liverpool favourites for fourth place at just 4/5, ahead of Arsenal who are now 5/4 to finish in the top four?
