Bet of the day: Origi to score in Liverpool win against Merseyside rivals Everton
Robbie Purves | 19 December 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Liverpool are undefeated in this fixture in 11 encounters
- Divock Origi has scored in each of his last four Premier League games
- Everton have won only once in six league matches
Origi 3/1 to score in Liverpool win
Dubbed ‘Mersey Monday’, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will look to maintain pressure on league toppers Chelsea with three points against bitter rivals Everton.
As Daniel Sturridge remains sidelined with yet another injury, 21-year-old Belgium striker Divock Origi has grasped his chance with both hands and has starred in a starting centre forward berth.
Klopp’s marksman has scored in each of his last four league games and makes Coral’s bet of the day all the more enticing. The former Lille man is 3/1 to score in a Reds triumph and, with the Anfield outfit undefeated in this fixture in 11 encounters, our odds look almost irresistible.
Anfield’s attackers to prove decisive
Origi may be flourishing up top, but his supporting cast are just as impressive. Adam Lallana is enjoying the best spell of his career, with six goals and assists from midfield in just 14 league games this term, and will look to link up with Liverpool’s brilliant Belgian.
Meanwhile, new summer signing Sadio Mane has slotted into Klopp’s relentless pressing football with ease and has seven goals, but most important for Origi, six assists from right wing.
Over at the blue side of Liverpool, Ronald Koeman’s Everton have won only once in six league matches in a run of form that has seen them cut adrift from the Champions League chasing pack.
The Toffees have failed to keep a clean sheet in their previous six outings, a fact which should have Klopp’s gifted attacking riches lacing up their boots in anticipation of a productive evening.
