Even the smallest improvement in Mo Salah’s touch could decide this First League title race.
But that’s a yawning gap compared to the infamous 12mm that denied the Reds a try down the line in their 2-1 defeat at the Etihad in 2019. A goal in almost every football game of all time, from the backyard to the Bernabeu. Computer says no.
VAR’s cold dead eye got evil from Jurgen Klopp under construction Paul Tierney will be Stockley Park’s wizard tonight.
The real VAR blooper has clearly revealed it’s just a dude sitting behind a big curtain with a mug of instant and a wagon wheel.
Today we can certainly expect goals alongside plenty of exciting breaks as the Almighty Oz claws at his almighty Arze. There have been 19 in the last five Prem meetings. Salah has scored in four of them.
He’s on a bit of a slump after two career-damaging encounters with Egypt but Mo still has the wits, the heart, the nerves… and Skybet’s standout prize is adorable. At 5/2, get on Salah ‘Anytime Goalscorer’.
Liverpool and Manchester City are also battling for the top of the Prem table in penalties won. A penalty kick has also been scored in three of their last five PL meetings.
But some firms are only offering 6/4 that at the Etihad (4:30pm) “a penalty will be awarded”, which frankly benefits Rishi a bit.
Still, a rise in the spot kick forecast lends weight to Riyad Mahrez’s claims. Punt him ‘Anytime Goalscorer’ on a fair 2/1 (Unibet).
And move up 11/2 (Bet365) on Liverpool scores with a pen – that’s great for their raw data.
Brentford (2pm) should fear the Hammers’ counterattack, but that’s not their style. Punt Jarrod Bowen “anytime” on 11/4. (Bet365).
Norwich-Burnley (2pm) is a bleak prospect – ‘no scorer’ at 7/1 (Fred) passes.
Over in Italy, Torino-Milan (7.45pm Serie A) looks very tight and goalless on the data – don’t get a ‘both teams to score’ at 20/21 (BetVic).
