A thoroughly dominant performance saw Liverpool register an impressive 2-0 victory at Aston Villa on Sunday and buoyed by their performance at Villa Park, the Reds are tipped to pick up another maximum haul on their travels as they face another televised clash, this time at Wigan.
Kenny Dalglish’s troops are emphatic favourites at 4/7 with Paddy Power while the Latics are 13/2 outsiders and although some punters might fancy a draw at 3/1 (Boylesports) given that the hosts held Chelsea at the DW Stadium on Saturday evening, it’s hard to oppose buoyant Liverpool.
The Reds have now carded back-to-back clean sheets and indeed, only Manchester United have conceded fewer goals on the road than Dalglish’s stubborn side. Another victory ‘to nil’ catches the eye then at 13/8 via Partybets and more specifically Ladbrokes post 8/1 against Liverpool again notching twice without reply.
Liverpool’s mean defence meanwhile, lends appeal to Betdaq’s 1.91 (10/11) for the match to produce fewer than three goals but Luis Suarez, who came so close to finding the net in the Midlands at the weekend, nevertheless looks decent value at 21/20 (bet365) to get on the scoresheet at any time. The Uruguayan front man is 19/4 with to break the deadlock.
Leaders Manchester City are just 1/4 with Boylesports to get the better of Stoke and after they kept a clean sheet against Arsenal in Sunday’s thrilling encounter, a victory ‘to nil’ for Roberto Mancini’s could be popular at 11/10 (Ladbrokes).
Nevertheless, as City hadn’t exactly been watertight before the weekend, a better bet to prevail without conceding, at 5/2 via 888Sport, are the Gunners, who visit shot-shy Aston Villa. Meanwhile, having leaked only three goals this season on their travels, Manchester United can also triumph ‘to nil’ at Fulham, an outcome Ladbrokes price at 2/1. Doubling them up with Arsenal in that market returns at 9/1 via Blue Square.
