The Reds March On
POSTED: 25 April 2014
Another winning week thanks to Everton’s comfortable win over Man Utd last weekend. I thought 2.4 was a great price and Everton cruised to the 2-0 victory without really being tested. Ironically United manager David Moyes afterwards said he thought United played well - simply speaking in all the years of the Premier League I’d say it’s the worst United side I’ve seen. I think his quotes after the game cost him his job, now they have a huge decision of who does the vital re-building job that is required.
Onto this week and the game everyone must be looking forward to in Liverpool v Chelsea.
Liverpool have a 5point lead over Chelsea and should they get their 12th straight win, it will rule Chelsea out of the Title race and take Liverpool one step closer to lifting the Premier League trophy for the first time.
Liverpool are flying and scoring for fun and whilst they are conceding goals they’re outscoring opponents and getting vital wins.
Chelsea lost to bottom of the table Sunderland last weekend with the winning goal ironically scored by Fabio Borini, who is on loan from Liverpool. Jose Mourinho may not even play a full strength side at the weekend considering the game comes just ahead of their vital second leg semi-final of the Champions League. Having drew 0-0 at Athletico Madrid they have a great chance of making the final by getting a result at Stamford Bridge the following Wednesday.
So with this in mind, I couldn’t believe it when I saw Liverpool at 1.91 to win on Sunday. They’re the form side in the league by far, top scorers, chasing the title and winning against whomever in front of them and Chelsea may not even be at 100%. That spells one thing to me, a Liverpool win.
Pick – Liverpool v Chelsea – Liverpool to win at 1.91
