The English football teams Liverpool and Sunderland are going to meet again on the 2nd of January, in the English Premier League. Recent meetings between these two clubs point to a routine victory for Liverpool.
Regarding the last five head-to-head confrontations between them, both teams have one victory against each other, and 3 draws (two 1-1 draws on the 15th of September 2012 and on the 13th of August 2011 and another 2-2 draw on the 25th of September 2010).
While the Black Cats have failed to win any of their last 14 trips to Anfield, Liverpool has lost just three times at home in the Premier League. Also, despite of being one of the best defensive teams in the league last season, there was only one team (QPR) that has conceded more than Liverpool so far this season. Also, the only players that have managed to score more than one Premier League goal against the Reds for Sunderland were Darren Bent and Kevin Phillips.
Only Darren Bent and Kevin Phillips have managed to score more than one Premier League goal against the Reds for Sunderland.
All in all, given the latest results of each team, I chose to place a bet on Liverpool’s victory. I place 10 units at 1.40. The odds I used are from William Hill.
