Liverpool come into this game in unbelieable form having scored fifteen goals in their last four game the red's truly are the form team in the league at the really right time of the season. If Sturridge, Suarez and Sterling can continue their terrific goal scoring exploits then Liverpool are a legitimate team in the race for the Premier League title. Personally I think they will fall just short this season with Manchester City and Chelsea's squad strength just too much on the run in.But I do think Liverpool and captain Stephen Gerrard will leave everything on the pitch and give it their all. Anfield hasnt been privy to a realistic run at a title in twenty odd years and there is no doubt the fans will roar on the home side throughout every game from here to seasons end.
Sunderland are a prime candidate for relegation, a tough run in coincides with a really poor run of form and if the Black Cats cant turn thigns around soon they could find themselves cut off from safety. John O'Shea and Wes Brown will be key for Sunderland at the back as they simply must stop conceding soft goals if they are to survive. When conceding soft goals a trip to the Premier League's top scoring side is not high on teh agenda and considering Sunderland's best striker is on loan from Liverpool and unable to play, well you cansee why Gus Poyet's team are 15/1 underdogs.
Really there is just no way to look at this one other than a Liverpool win. I'm thinking that the red's kick off and start fast and try to get this game out of sight by halftime. I'm taking over 1.5 first half goals, which should pay a nice return and could happen easily if Liverpool's last four home games are anything to go by. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
