Who would have thought it a couple to three weeks ago, but Liverpool’s beat chance of getting a Champions League spot, now seems to depend on them catching Manchester City.
After City’s thrashing away at Manchester United yesterday, Liverpool find themselves 7 points behind Pelligrini’s men, with a game in hand – which is at home to Newcastle United tonight, live on Sky Sports Monday Night Football (kick-off, 8pm).
Luckily for Liverpool, Newcastle seem to have – like Manchester City – packed up for the season. Whether it’s a case of players not wanting to be there, or just they can’t be bothered as the club don’t look interested in progressing with John Carver in charge, I don’t know, but I think it’s fair to say that the Newcastle players don’t look to have too much fight in them at the moment.
This all points to a comfortable Liverpool victory tonight, and if you think that is likely, then you will be pleased to know that Paddy Power are offering new customers opening an account here 7/2 on Liverpool to beat Newcastle tonight, and a free bet of £10.00.
The £10.00 free bet is an extra offer from Paddy Power.
