Wigan v Liverpool Betting Tips and Predictions

Reason For Derby County vs Liverpool Betting Tips

Even if we ignore the fact that these two hail from different divisions, on purely a form basis, it is almost impossible to go against the visitors in this fixture. Liverpool have by far the stronger squad and have been in good form of late – winning matches and scoring plenty of goals. This is something that cannot be said for Derby – a team who’ve only scored two league goals during this campaign.

Although they are likely to make changes from a full strength league XI, it’s fairly hard to envisage a situation where Liverpool don’t walk away from this match having scored a few goals. At odds of 5/4 ‘Liverpool to Score Over 2.5 Goals’ looks a good bet.

Derby have been conceding goals on a regular basis in the Championship (conceding in each of their last five) so it’s not hard to imagine one of the better attacking sides from the Premier League putting a fair few goals past them. Liverpool have scored three or more goals on three occasions this season already (including last time out in this competition where they put five past Burton – a team who subsequently beat Derby in the Championship). If the visitors are able to score one goal reasonably early in this fixture and draw Derby out then you’d have to assume that other will follow, especially if they are allowed to counter.

Head to Head

The head-to-head record between these two teams reads heavily in the favour of tonight’s visitors. Liverpool have won four of the last five renewals. The last time the pair met was back in 2007 – a match that Liverpool won 2-1.

Derby County Team News

Derby County Team Badge George Thorne will miss this match for the hosts. The midfielders remains sidelined with a fractured leg. Other than that there are no injury or suspension worries for Derby, although they may rotate personnel if their Championship campaign is seen as the priority.

Liverpool Team News

Liverpool Team Badge Sheyi Ojo and Joe Gomez are the only two absentees through injury ahead of this match for Liverpool. The Reds also approach this one with no suspension worries. However, Liverpool are expected to rotate and this match will likely see a number of fringe players feature in the starting XI.
