REASON FOR LIVERPOOL VS STOKE CITY BETTING TIPS

After a busy Boxing Day of Premier League action, it’s off to Anfield where Liverpool play host to Stoke City in Tuesday’s top-flight festive entertainment.

After back-to-back away wins at Middlesbrough and Everton, the Reds will be seeking another victory to re-establish themselves in 2nd spot in the table above Manchester City.  Three points would also keep them within touching distance of the runaway leaders, Chelsea, by closing the gap on the Londoners to six points.

Stoke have recovered well from a poor start to the season and have lost just twice in their last 12 Premier League games to move into their customary mid-table position.  They have only taken a couple of points from their last three matches though, which has included consecutive home draws against Southampton and Leicester City in their last two games.

That resilience from the visitors makes a best price of 1/3 on a Liverpool victory look very skinny, so it pays to look elsewhere for a bit of value.

It’s worth noting that Jurgen Klopp’s team tend to be on the front foot in matches from the off.  Liverpool have led at half-time in 9 of their 17 Premier League games to date and scored 21 of their 41 goals before the interval.  The Liverpool/ Liverpool Half-time/Full-time Double Result has paid out in 4 of the Reds 7 games at Anfield and that looks a fair bet to come in again.

It also has to be said that Liverpool are not always the most secure defensively and 8 of their 11 victories this season have come about with the opposition also getting on the scoresheet (although it’s true that their last three wins have all been to nil).  Stoke look to possess enough attacking threat to grab at least a goal.

A minor variation on that bet would be to back Liverpool with Over 2.5 Goals in the match, which is available at 4/5 with Coral.  That’s occurred in 9 of 11 Liverpool wins this season.

If you’re looking for a Liverpool v Stoke City correct score tip, then a 3-1 home win at 11/1 with BetVictor looks capable of giving you a run for your money.

The anytime goalscorer market is sure to attract a few bets on Stoke’s Joe Allen at 13/2 with 888sport against his former club, but Adam Lallana looks the more likely at 9/5, also with 888sport.


LIVERPOOL VS STOKE CITY STATS

71% of Liverpool’s games at Anfield have featured Over 2.5 Goals this season, but that figure dips to 25% for Stoke’s games on the road (although it’s also 25% for Over 3.5 Goals).

Both Teams To Score (BTTS) has occurred in 71% of Liverpool’s matches on home soil this season and in 62% of Stoke’s away games.

LIVERPOOL TEAM NEWS

This game is a little too soon for Philippe Coutinho, but the Brazilian  could make his comeback against Manchester City on New Year’s Eve.  Joel Matip is still a doubt with an ankle injury, so Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan could continue in central defence.  Daniel Sturridge is pressing for a start after impressing from the bench at Goodison Park.

STOKE CITY TEAM NEWS

Ibrahim Afellay is available again after an eight-month abscence with a serious knee problem.  Jack Butland, Phil Bardsley, Geoff Cameron and Stephen Ireland are all out through injury though, while Marko Arnautovic is suspended.
