Kenny Dalglish's men were shocked by Queens Park Rangers in midweek but Willie Duncan expects no such slip-ups when they host Roberto Martinez's struggling LaticsLiverpool will be hoping to shrug off the disappointment of a shock 3-2 defeat to Queens Park Rangers when they welcome Wigan to Anfield this weekend.
Kenny Dalglish's side surrendered a two-goal lead in the final 13 minutes of Wednesday's encounter with QPR but will aim to keep their slim hopes of a top-four finish alive with victory against the relegation-threatened Latics. The Reds are hot favourites to win at 27/100 (1.27) with 188Bet.
Liverpool's defeat to QPR was every bit as painful for Wigan as it was for their hosts this weekend, the result leaving Roberto Martinez's side languishing in the bottom three of the Premier League table and three points adrift of safety.
The 44/5 (9.80) quote from 188Bet on an away victory reflects the enormity of Wigan's task while the same firm rate the draw as a 37/10 (4.70) chance.
Roberto Martinez emphasised his belief that his side will beat the drop following the 1-1 home draw with West Bromwich Albion last weekend but that appears to be based on hope rather than recent form with Wigan winning just once - a 2-1 triumph over fellow strugglers Bolton - in their last 15 games.
Despite being held at DW Stadium back in December, Liverpool will be motivated to take out their mid-week frustrations on the visitors and can be backed at 13/2 (7.50) with 188Bet to record a thumping 3-0 victory while a more routine 2-0 win for the hosts is chalked up at 11/2 (6.50) with the same firm.
Wigan backers may be tempted by the big odds of 28/1 (29.0) with 188Bet for the away side to emerge with a narrow 1-0 victory.
However, Liverpool should enjoy home comforts and the 7/10 (1.70) from 188Bet for the Reds to lead at both half-time and full-time should be snapped up here.
