Reds Kean to heap further woe on Rovers

Blackburn have conceded at least two goals in their last six games

After the week that Steve Kean has had, the last thing he wants is a trip to Anfield to face one of the form teams in the league. Kenny Dalglish, on the other hand, will see this as a glorious chance to gain three points before more testing games against Newcastle and Manchester City.

The problem that has plagued Blackburn is their defence, and they have conceded at least two goals in their last six games. Playing against a Liverpool team that has struggled for goals, you could be mistaken for thinking that Blackburn could nick something out of this game. However, having watched the game during the week against Wigan, it is beyond me how Dalglish’s men did not score, including a crucial missed penalty.

A breaking story this week was the impending suspension of Luis Suarez. Initially given an eight-match ban, the Merseysiders have appealed which means that he can play up until there is a final verdict. He has been one of Liverpool’s standout player this season, and his absence will bring questions of where the goals are going to come from. Fortunately for the Anfield faithful he will be playing against Rovers here, and that should enable Liverpool to comfortably seal victory and push Kean further to the exit door at Ewood Park.

Odds on a Liverpool win peak at 2/7 with Ladbrokes, so it is better to look elsewhere for value.
With Blackburn normally good for a goal, even in defeat, the 11/8 that Ladbrokes are offering for both teams to score looks extremely worthwhile. And by the same token, over two goals should also be a knock-in bet at 4/7 with Coral.

Recommended Bet:

Over two goals in the game @ 4/7 with Coral

Both teams to score @ 11/8 with Ladbrokes
