Make a load of money from Suarez’s Liverpool debut

Suarez – Debut


Liverpool’s big money signing may be a few weeks away from fitness, but their other January buy, Luis Suarez – who signed for a paltry £23 million – looks set to make his debut for the Reds tonight against Stoke.

Here’s what our lovely friends at Ladbrokes reckon will happen…

After a busy deadline day in the transfer window, Liverpool can now return to on-the-field matters and their strong form at Anfield this season makes them decently priced at 4/7 in the Premier League betting to beat Stoke.

Match Odds

Only Manchester United and Chelsea have gained more league points at home this season than Liverpool, with the Reds collecting 24 of their 32 points at Anfield.

Liverpool away has not proved one of Stoke’s favourite fixtures in the past as they have taken just two points from Anfield in their last 26 visits.

Furthermore, Stoke have never won at Anfield in 47 top-flight meetings.

However, Stoke will take confidence from the way they bullied Liverpool off the park in their 2-0 victory at the Britannia Stadium in November.

It is 54 years since Stoke last did the double over Liverpool, but those believing that the time has come for this run to end can get odds of 5/1.

First Goalscorer

Many eyes will be on new Liverpool signing Luis Suarez as he is expected to make his debut for the club against Stoke.

He brings with him a prolific scoring record from Holland and is 7/2 to open the scoring against Stoke and help Liverpool fans quickly forget about Fernando Torres.

Suarez’s chances are also aided by the fact that Stoke will be without regular starting defenders Ryan Shawcross and Danny Higginbotham.

Meanwhile, Stoke are yet to concede more than twice in a league game this season, so backing Liverpool to win 2-0 could prove profitable at 6/1.

    Hope Nando will be watching this game and assessing how good Liverpool are without him.
    He was reluctent to his best in the last few months with Liverpool. In Suarez and Carroll we trust.

    I think that King Kenny has actually made a case for Nando by saying that we should expect this type of movement in football.
    And that without this he would not be here at Anfield.
    Let us focus on the good things the club did for Nando and what he gave in return.
    A very good world class striker. Sorry we could not keep him. But I do think that Nando has made a mistake to leave now and liverpool could be smiling now. Nando’s fee could get us two top strikers.
