Be quick on the draw at 5/2

Live on Skysports 1: Sun 13.30 & 16.00: The draw at 5/2 (Stan James) looks worth backing as Liverpool host Man City in the Premier League.

It’s fair to say that Liverpool didn’t enjoy the ideal start to the season, going down heavily to West Brom and losing key defender Daniel Agger to a red card in the process so Brendan Rodgers will be hoping for a change of luck as his side welcome Manchester City to Anfield this afternoon.

The champions themselves hardly convinced last weekend, but they did at least pick up three points despite falling behind to Southampton at one stage and they’re BetVictor’s 7/5 favourites to make it back-to-back league defeats for the Reds, who are 21/10 outsiders at bet365.

Nevertheless, Liverpool should be a different proposition in front of their own supporters and as City showed vulnerability at times on Sunday, Rodgers’ charges could conceivably get something out of the game.

Stan James make them 5/2 to grab a share of the spoils as they have done in four of the last five meetings between the two on Merseyside and a repeat of the 2-2 from the pair’s last clash, a Carling Cup tie in January, is a 14/1 shot at William Hill.

The last Anfield league encounter ended one-apiece, a scoreline that is 11/2 (Skybet) to be replicated in this one but as the two teams conceded a handful of goals between them last time out, it could be that this one produces three or more goals, an outcome Paddy Power price at even money.

Meanwhile, former Liverpool midfielder Gary McAllister suggested in the wake of the Reds’ Hawthorns reverse, that the Reds can’t rely too much on Luis Suarez for goals but the Uruguayan remains his side’s main attacking threat and he’s 7/1 with Stan James to break the deadlock.

Arsenal couldn’t break down Sunderland last Saturday but at 11/10 (Paddy Power) they should make amends by getting the better of Stoke at the Britannia Stadium in today’s other encounter. Admittedly, the Potters physical approach could disrupt the Gunners’ rhythm but Arsene Wenger’s charges should make their extra quality tell eventually with a victory by one, an outcome Ladbrokes rate at 3/1.

Recommended Bets:
Liverpool and Man City to draw – 5/2 (Stan James)
Luis Suarez to score first – 7/1 (Stan James)
Arsenal to beat Stoke by one – 3/1 (Ladbrokes)
