Defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea respectively dented the Reds’ hopes of being crowned as champions come the end of the season but Brendan Rodgers’ men have made a positive start to 2014 with wins over Hull City and Oldham Athletic.
Liverpool are warm favourites to claim another victory when they take on the Potters this weekend, with Betway offering just 13/20 (1.65) on an away win.
Stoke saw off Leicester City to progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup last weekend, but that result represented only their second win in seven matches so Mark Hughes will demand an improvement from his side ahead of this weekend’s clash.
The Potters are chalked up at 4/1 (5.0) with Betway to see off the Reds at Brittania Stadium while the same firm go 13/5 (3.60) that both sides are forced to settle for a share of the spoils.
Mark Hughes’ men have lost just two home matches in all competitions thus far this term but Brendan Rodgers’ side, desperate to reignite their title challenge, represent a stiff test for the home side.
Liverpool may have won just one of their last five matches on the road – a 5-0 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane last month – but it is worth noting that when the Reds have been on-song, they have won convincingly this term.
Indeed, each of Liverpool’s last 10 victories in all competitions has come by, at least, a two-goal margin and there is value to be had in backing a similar outcome this weekend.
The 33/20 (2.65) quote from Betway for Liverpool (-1) in the handicap market is certainly appealing here and is sure to be a popular selection with punters.
Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez will be hoping to add to his impressive goal tally against the Potters this weekend and is decent value to do so here.
The 26-year-old front man has netted at least two goals in four of his last eight matches and the juicy 3/1 (4.0) quote from Betway for Suarez to net twice at Brittania Stadium appears to represent excellent value for punters this weekend.
