As Trevor on the Star Sports trading desk said this morning punters are viewing this as ‘past the post’ already. Even the 2/11 wasn’t deterring backers with a price change to 1/6. Liverpool are also proving popular on all the handicap markets.

Man City maintained their own momentum in style last night and it’s becoming a little bit like a penalty shoot out at the moment. The next team to miss can throw away their chances.

It’s already more than factored into Liverpool’s title odds that a win here is a shoe in – and three points tonight will lift them into second, just one point behind Chelsea.

Sunderland looked doomed early in the season, then got themselves out of the danger zone, but have slipped back recently and currently sit third bottom, three points off the safety zone.

Liverpool have scored an amazing 24 goals in their last six games including a 6-3 win over Swansea at the weekend and with Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers having no new injury concerns there’s unlikely to be any let up here.

I can easily see Liverpool running riot tonight so will have a look at the -4 on the three way handicap at around 11/2.

RECOMMENDED BET (scale of 1-10 points)
