Reason For Plymouth VS Liverpool Betting Tips

With the eyes of the country on them we are backing Plymouth and Liverpool to serve up a bit of a goal fest when they meet for the second in a few weeks for their FA Cup third round replay. An over 2.5 goals bet is available at 4/7 with bet365. For our correct score tip we like the look of a fairly comfortable nights work for Liverpool and we are backing them to book their place in the fourth round with a 3-1 win, which is priced at 10/1 with the same site.

Despite fielding the youngest ever Liverpool first team XI the last time these sides met, Jurgen Klopp’s side still dominated possession and were thoroughly in control over their League Two counterparts. We expect that Klopp will stick with a largely youthful side but we’d also expect him to add one or two older heads to his side as he looks to progress. This is a competition Liverpool are among the favourites to win and with the Reds just dropping off the pace of Premier League leaders Chelsea in recent weeks this fixture may have just taken on some added importance.

It’s probably fair to say that Plymouth’s league form has suffered as a result of their progress in the FA Cup. They were clear in League Two just before Christmas but a dip in form has now knocked them off top sport and although they recorded a vital win over Stevenage last time out, they will have few expectations of coming away with anything other than a decent payday.

Head To Head

Liverpool have the better of the head to head between these two sides with a record of five wins, four draws and two defeats. The last time these sides met was in the 0-0 draw which led to this replay.
