Liverpool like to do things the hard way and this season has been no exception. The Reds were looking good to finish in the Premier League top-three only a couple of weeks ago, however defeat to Crystal Palace and a goal-less draw with Southampton in their last two home games have left them sitting a point behind third-placed Manchester City and they really do need to pull their socks up in their final game of the season.
Indeed whilst we firmly believe that the Reds will beat Middlesbrough on Sunday afternoon, matters really are out of their hands as regards a top-three finish. Should Manchester City win their final game then Liverpool will have to contend with a place in the Champions League qualifiers next season. Indeed there is little room for complacency in the Reds camp given that they sit only one point above Arsenal and could conceivably fall out of the Champions League berths altogether should they fail to beat the Teessiders on Sunday afternoon.
As such, three points is a must for Jurgen Klopp’s men although we don’t expect that the visitors to Anfield will manage anything for their troubles this weekend. The bookies clearly feel much the same with most firms going 2/11 on a Liverpool win, however you can back the Reds at a massive 25/1 by opening a new Betfair account today.
