Liverpool vs Middlesbrough 21 May 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Liverpool need to win their last game to ensure that they are sure a spot in the top 4. This season started off really well for the team in Red but unfortunately the loss of Sadio Mane has caused them to fall out of the title race. Their last game is against newly relegated Middlesbrough at home at Anfield and as a result I think we can expect a really good result from them.

Middlesbrough have had a bad season and the main reason for that is simply because they can not score goals. This side has a decent defense but I think it is hard for them to create chances and as a result they have failed to score all season. This weekend it will be tough for them to score away from home at Anfield which makes viewing a sad sight for the Boro fans.

Liverpool will be tense in this game, especially if they do not score early and if Arsenal manage to gain a lead early in their game against Everton. This game will need the big names to step up and so to the fans since a lot is on the line for the teams. The likes of Roberto Firmino, Coutinho and Jordan Henderson need to lead from the front and if that is done, then I think this side has a really good chance of making it to the top 4.

All in all I think Liverpool will win this game but we are not getting the right price to make this bet and as a result I think it is best if we skip it. The best bet in the under 2.5 goals. This will be a stressful match for the reds so it makes sense if the game is low scoring.  

 

Pick:
Under 2.5 goals
