Lee Gormley | December 30, 2015
Bet of the day
- Sunderland have lost their last four games in all competitions
- Three of those defeats have been by two or more goal margins
- Manchester City thrashed the Black Cats 4-1 last time out
- The Reds’ last two away wins were 3-1 and 4-1 results over Chelsea and City
Liverpool 9/4 to win by two or more (£20 max)
Sunderland have been supremely struggling in the Premier League this season and face a tough task against Liverpool in their latest outing, with the Reds 9/4 to win by two or more goals as Coral’s bet of the day (£20 max stake).
Despite the appointment of Sam Allardyce at the Stadium of Light helm, the Black Cats have still been languishing hopelessly in the relegation zone, above only West Midlands strugglers Aston Villa.
Recent form suggests Sunderland will face an almighty fight to prevent a Reds attacking onslaught, with Jurgen Klopp’s men having been rampant on previous away trips domestically.
Recent away form worrying to hosts
Liverpool’s previous two league victories on the road were emphatic 3-1 and 4-1 results over reigning champions Chelsea and title hopefuls Manchester City, proving they have the forward prowess to recommence such a freescoring streak on Wearside.
Sunderland have lost their previous four games in the Premier League, with three of those ending in two or more goal deficits at the hands of Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City.
The Reds have have not lost in this fixture in six previous meetings, with their last defeat coming back in March 2012, having won four times since then.
Reds attack a Wearside threat
With the likes of Christian Benteke, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino all enjoying an impressive run of form, with skipper Jordan Henderson also recently returning to action in style.
Possessing such a dangerous strikeforce, Klopp will be confident of overcoming a stuttering Sunderland side, so make sure to back Liverpool to win by two or more goals at 9/4 with a £20 max stake.
