Liverpool 11/2 to finish in the top-four of the Premier League this season
Competition: Premier League
Market: Liverpool to finish top-four
Odds: 11/2 @ Ladbrokes
Liverpool recorded a much-needed 2-0 win at home to Newcastle on Monday night, which put them just four points off forth-placed Manchester City in the Premier League table, with six games still to play. Given the woeful form of the Sky Blues of late, Liverpool have a genuine opportunity to replace them in the final Champions League place.
The Reds have somewhat of an easy run-in, with West Bromwich Albion, Hull City, Queens Park Rangers, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Stoke City their remaining games. If Brendan Rodgers’ side are serious about wanting a top-four finish, there’s no reason they can’t get 15 points from a possible 18.
As for City, the Premier League holders have Tottenham, Swansea and Southampton to face in their remaining games, who – in City’s current predicament – could well be tricky encounters. There’s also the ongoing saga surrounding manager Manuel Pellegrini’s future with the club that doesn’t serve to help matters.
Ladbrokes are giving odds of 11/2 for Liverpool to finish in the top-four of the Premier League this season, but they will need a near perfect run of form until the end of the campaign to achieve it.
