Wigan’s 1-0 win over Liverpool on Monday night has seen them eased out in the relegation betting from 4/1 to a best price of 7/1 with Sky Bet, it also sees them move up to 14th place on 28 points, 4 clear of the bottom three.
At the other end of the table Liverpool remain in 6th place and the result is a major blow to their pursuit of 4th place and the final Champions League spot.
Rafa Benitez questioned the attitude of his players for their 1st half showing and clearly wasn’t happy with the performance on the whole, he didn’t even try to blame the ref.
I thought back in November/December time that come this stage of the season and with no League title or Champions League to play for, that some Liverpool players might have (more than half) an eye on this summers World Cup, that they may be more interested in not getting injured than anything else.
Only time will tell if this is true.
The Reds are now 1 point behind Man City (5th), having played two more matches than City, and 1 point behind Spurs, having played one more game than Harry Redknapp’s team.
Liverpool are now out to 3/1 with William Hill to finish 4th.
