REASON FOR LIVERPOOL VS PLYMOUTH ARGYLE BETTING TIPS

This is the type of tie that the 3rd round of the FA Cup is all about, as Premier League title-chasers Liverpool play host to League Two Plymouth Argyle at Anfield.

The Reds are unbeaten at Anfield this season, but this team is likely to bare only a minimal resemblance to that which Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp usually selects for Premier League duty.

Klopp is set to name a much-changed starting XI, with Loris Karius, Alberto Moreno, Lucas Leiva and Divock Origi all potential starters alongside less experienced players such as Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kevin Stewart and Ovie Ejaria. There is also the likelihood of a first start in 16-months for defender Joe Gomez.

Plymouth are second in League Two and are currently looking well placed for promotion. Derek Adams’ team has also won no fewer than 8 of their 11 away games in League Two to date, but this is clearly a huge step up in class. Even so, they are sure to have a sizeable and vocal following behind them and they are unlikely to be overawed by the occasion.

Liverpool are a best price of 2/11 with Betway to win this match, which might have been understandable were they to be fielding a full-strength team, but look ridiculously short odds given those likely to take to the field.

Liverpool will certainly be expected to win still, but this seems unlikely to be a drubbing. As a consequence, backing the Pilgrims +2 on the Asian Handicap at 6/5 with Betfred looks fairly appealing, ensuring a winning bet provided Plymouth lose by no more than a one-goal margin and even giving you a full refund of your stake should they lose by any two-goal margin.

For any Liverpool v Plymouth Argyle correct score bets, this might be a game to look for a few goals. A 3-2 Liverpool win is on offer at 33/1 with William Hill. If looking for an Anytime Goalscorer, then Liverpool’s Stewart looks a big price at 8/1 with Betfred.

Some of the names in the Liverpool line-up may be a little unfamiliar, but Klopp will still have them playing in the same swashbuckling style and no doubt with the same defensive frailties, so a Liverpool win with over 3.5 goals in the game also appeals at 13/10 with Paddy Power.

For those that believe this will be a comfortable home win, another option might be to back Liverpool at 8/13 to score in both halves with Paddy Power.


LIVERPOOL VS PLYMOUTH ARGYLE STATS

In the Premier League, Liverpool have averaged 2.89 goals per game at Anfield this season. They have also scored in both halves of 56% of home matches.

Plymouth have scored in 82% of their away matches in League Two this season and averaged 1.45 goals per game in the process.


LIVERPOOL TEAM NEWS

Not that they were likely to start anyway, but Philippe Coutinho, Joel Matip, James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge are all out, while Sadio Mane is on Africa Cup of Nations duty.


PLYMOUTH ARGYLE TEAM NEWS

Striker Paul-Arnold Garita and defender Nauris Bulvitis could both start, despite being injury doubts.
