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 TEAM NEWS

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE TEAM NEWS

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