Live on Skysports 2: Weds 19.45: Liverpool are 4/6 via to beat Brighton in the Carling Cup and it’s worth following Andy Carroll.
Sunday can certainly go down as bad day in the office for Liverpool who were reduced to nine men as they went down 4-0 to Tottenham at White Hart Lane but the Reds should bounce back this evening as they head to Brighton for a Carling Cup tie.
The Championship high-flyers, priced by Betfred at 9/2 to cause an upset, have won five of their seven league matches so they will be no pushovers, especially on home soil, however, Kenny Dalglish fielded a strong side in the previous round at Exeter and as he is likely to do so again, Liverpool’s top flight class should tell.
Bookies agree and so the Reds are odds-on favourites at 4/6 with to progress in normal time while Skybet chalk Dalglish’s charges up at 11/4 to prevail by a one-goal margin.
More specifically, Ladbrokes mark 8/1 against a 2-1 Liverpool success and it’s 7/2 courtesy of Paddy Power for the Reds to overcome a resilient Seagulls outfit despite going in on level terms at the break.
In attack, Andy Carroll’s only goal this season came in the Carling Cup triumph against the Grecians and with the powerful striker set to feature again, he tempts at 9/2 (bet365) to break the Falmer Stadium deadlock. Alternatively, Boylesports offer 11/10 for the ex-Newcastle man to notch at any time.
