Reds ready to strike Hornets


With their main rivals all in FA Cup action, Liverpool have a chance to turn the heat up in the race for second place in the Premier League when they play host to Watford.

The Hornets arrive at Anfield in dismal form on the road, having taken just one point from their last eight away league games, while they have also shipped 12 goals in their last four meetings with the Reds.

Roberto Firmino has been among the scorers in three of those four games and could offer a return at 27/20 to be first or last goalscorer.

Team-mate Mohamed Salah has gone two games without a goal, a drought in the overall scheme of an amazing season to date.

He may be extra motivated to get back on the scoresheet with Harry Kane sidelined and the Premier League topscorer crown very much in his sights, so 39/30 to score twice or more may be a decent option.

The action at Anfield takes place at teatime, with the three afternoon kick-offs all having importance at the wrong end of the table.

Stoke will hope that improved displays in recent games can translate into a crucial three points at home to Everton and, at 31/20 to claim victory, the hosts are certainly worth a second look.

Games between the two sides in recent times have been tight and lacking in too many goals, so 19/10 for under 1.5 total goals in the game is also something to ponder.

Seemingly doomed West Brom head to the South Coast to face Bournemouth and barring a miracle they have already passed the point of no return.

They will come up against an in-form forward in Cherries ace Junior Stanislas, who is 43/20 to score at any time, having found the net in three of his last six games.

Finally, Huddersfield Town host Crystal Palace in an almost classic six-pointer, with the Eagles having lost form at just the wrong time and gone seven league games without a win.

However, they are set to welcome back Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Yohan Cabaye and Mamadou Sakho from injury and Wilfried Zaha is poised to start, giving them a major boost in all areas of the pitch.

For that reason Palace at 17/10 to win the game at the John Smith’s Stadium and 7/4 to keep a clean sheet might both catch your eye.
