Liverpool vs Blackburn: More misery awaits desolate Steve Kean

| 26.12.2011

Kenny Dalglish faces the team he led to the Premier League title back in 1995 knowing a win for the Reds would see Blackburn fall even further behind in their battle for survival.

Steve Kean is somehow still hanging on to his job but is huge favourite at 1/6 to be the next Premier League boss to leave.

Another defeat at Anfield would surely hasten his seemingly inevitable exit…

Match odds

Unsurprisingly, Liverpool are big 3/10 favourites to win this game against a side currently bottom of the Premier League.

Rovers have not won at Anfield in the league since 1993 and have not recorded a victory on the road this term. In fact, they have won just one of their last 17 Premier League games away from Ewood Park.

The Reds dropped points in their goalless draw with Wigan in the week though and have won just one of their last five games at home.

Rovers can be backed at a massive 9/1 to get a shock win and 7/2 to get their first point at Liverpool since 2006.

Goal markets

Blackburn have the worst away defence in the Premier League and have not kept a clean sheet in their last ten away league games.

However, the Reds have struggled to find the net at home and not one of their previous five games have seen them find the net more than once.

Backing under 2.5 goals at 6/5 looks to be the bet to take on.

Finally, with Luis Suarez poised to miss eight games because of his suspension for racially abusing Patrice Evra, Andy Carroll must surely be given more of a chance to prove himself.

The striker can be backed at 5/4 to score at any time against Rovers.
