Gus Poyet’s men face a near impossible task when they travel to the Anfield Stadium in their bid to escape relegation
Sunderland face title-chasing Liverpool in Wednesday’s English Premier League encounter to hold at the Anfield Stadium.
The Black Cats are deep rooted in relegation waters after gathering 25 points from 28 games and come into this encounter without a win in their last five matches.
Liverpool on the hand are strong contenders for the English Premier League title after boasting of 65 points from their last 30 matches. Ladbrokes offer them at 1/6 (1.16) to compound the woes of their visitors while Gus Poyet’s men are huge underdogs in this tie and can be backed at 14/1 (15.00) to shock the Reds on Merseyside.
The draw is a 13/2 (7.50) play with Ladbrokes that the game should end in a no winner, no vanquished situation.
Sunderland still fresh from their 2-0 defeat against Norwich know that a draw at least for them in this game will help their quest to avoid a drop to the English Championship. They are available at 7/2 (3.50) to win either half of this crunch tie.
Rodgers’ side have been firing on all cylinders in recent weeks, netting 16 goals in their last four matches and after putting six goals past Cardiff over the weekend, they will be hoping to go goal frenzy before their home fans.
A play of over 3.5 goals at 20/21 (1.95) will be a wise choice for punters seeking value bet from this encounter.
