They may have been celebrating in recent days but 23/10 about world, European and English champions Liverpool winning a football match looks too good to miss.
Yes, they are facing a Manchester City side with something to prove and, yes, that renowned focus may have cracked following last week’s clinching of the title.
But Liverpool do still have the goal of setting a new Premier League points record, one currently held by City. They could yet hit a remarkable 107, seven more than their rivals managed two seasons ago.
There’s also the chance to lay down a marker ahead of the new season, one which will soon be upon us.
Of course, there’s a chance Jurgen Klopp makes a host of changes – City beating Liverpool’s back-up players would mean little in terms of going forward – but otherwise 23/10 is too big about a team who have won 28 and drawn two of 31 matches.
In any case, City have a number of injury problems, star striker Sergio Aguero is among them and will definitely miss the game, as will the suspended Fernandinho.
Their season is now all about winning the FA Cup and Champions League – expect Pep Guardiola’s league line-ups to reflect that with players getting regularly rotated in a bid to get them in the best condition for those games. The FA Cup semi-final is just over two weeks away.
With Fernandinho out and John Stones and Eric Garcia both injury doubts, Nicolas Otamendi may well have to fill in again at the back and that’s good news for cards backers.
The Argentine, who was hardly convincing against Chelsea last week, has been booked in five of his eight competitive starts against Liverpool.
The referee is Anthony Taylor, who produces an above-average number of cards. He was also in charge of this fixture last season and showed six cards.
