Price Boost: Enhanced odds on another Sterling effort for Liverpool
The FA Cup tie between Liverpool and Bolton could be billed as about one thing – the return to Anfield of Emile Heskey.
But here at Ladbrokes we are looking to make it all about another frontman in this fourth round tie.
With Daniel Sturridge spending much of the season on the sidelines, the mantle of leading the Liverpool line has fallen to Raheem Sterling.
And with England man likely to be in the thick of things once again, we are boosting the 20-year-old from 10/3 to a massive 9/2 to open the scoring.
The diminutive forward couldn’t come into this in better form.
His goal against Chelsea in mid-week in the Capital One Cup was his eighth strike of the season, leaving him as Liverpool’s second-highest scorer this season behind skipper Steven Gerrard.
What makes this boost really interesting is that of those eight goals, five have broken the deadlock in that particular match, meaning the number 31 is the perfect man to inject some goals in a match.
Bolton may be on a bit of a renaissance in the Championship this season, winning four of their last six matches under Neil Lennon, but that could all count for nothing, as it often does in games in front of the Kop.
The Trotters have lost their last 10 visits to the red half of Merseyside, a run that stretches back to New Year’s Day 2002, when Kevin Nolan’s late equaliser denied a Liverpool side including the aforementioned Heskey the perfect start to the New Year.
So combined with Bolton’s atrocious record at the ground, and Sterling being a bang in form striker, this is one price boost you really don’t want to miss.
