Liverpool returned home from Serbia on Tuesday night smarting after a third successive European away defeat for the first time in their history, with Jurgen Klopp clearly unhappy with his team’s performance against Red Star Belgrade.
The German will now fix his attention on Sunday’s clash against Fulham and the Premier League title pretenders will have plenty of time to prepare for a clash against a Cottagers side who sit bottom of the table at this point in proceedings.
As you might expect, the bookmakers don’t want to know when it comes to pricing up Liverpool for the win, with BetVictor offering 1/10 and high rollers might consider piling in and enjoying a 10% return on their stake at those odds.
Alternatively, you can get 2/5 with the same bookie that the Reds lead at half-time and full-time, with Liverpool having enjoyed a half-time lead in all their Premier League victories thus far, with a strong team likely to be sent out.
The correct score market could be one to play here, with BetVictor making a 3-0 winning Liverpool scoreline their favourite at 13/2, while 4-0 is priced up at 8/1 and that could go close.
However, a fast start from Liverpool could see them run in the goals against a team who have creaked badly against different opponents this term and Fulham seem to be defensively poor.
The 5-0 victory for the Reds is a 12/1 poke and you can get much bigger odds of 90/1 about an 8-0 win. If you think that Liverpool can achieve a double figure goals tally, then BetVictor have 200/1 about a 10-0 win.
That would mean an average of a goal every nine minutes, with Mohamed Salah available at 4/1 to score a hat-trick and boost his goals tally for the season.
