Liverpool quadruple odds: Reds drift after Spurs setback

| 09.05.2022

Latest Liverpool quadruple odds and the challenge facing the Reds

Liverpool’s hopes of securing a clean sweep of trophies suffered a massive setback at the weekend when they could only draw with Tottenham.

Defending champions Manchester City went three points clear with three games remaining thanks to an emphatic 5-0 victory over Newcastle on Sunday.

Ladbrokes are offering Liverpool quadruple odds of 14/1 – up from 6/1 – on them adding the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League to the Carabao Cup they won in February.

They are also 11/2 to end their campaign with just the League Cup.

League Cup

The first leg of a possible Liverpool quadruple is complete, with the Reds having already lifted their first piece of silverware this season.

The League Cup may have been low down on Klopp’s list of priorities at the start of the campaign and he fielded weakened teams throughout the competition.

Their strength in depth was highlighted as they brushed aside Norwich and Preston before squeezing past Leicester on penalties.

Liverpool then beat Arsenal in the semi-finals thanks to a 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium before they again held their nerve in a shoot-out to beat Chelsea 11-10 after the final finished goalless.

Premier League

Liverpool have been going toe to toe with leaders Manchester city since February, but Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Spurs means Pep Guardiola’s side just need seven points from their last three games to retain their title.

Son Heung-min broke the deadlock in the 55th minute when he tapped in after fine build-up play from Harry Kane to release Ryan Sessegnon down the left.

Liverpool – unbeaten at Anfield in 14 months – equalised through Luis Diaz’s deflected 74th-minute strike, but could not find a winner.

Manager Jurgen Klopp tried to keep spirits high ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Aston Villa where only a four-goal win or better will send them back to the top of the table.

He said: “First and foremost we should stop behaving like it is a funeral. In my life much worse things happen. It is an important point, because it is one point more than before the game. From 1-0 down it is massively better, but it was not exactly what we wanted. Now we have to deal with it, but we will, we all know the situation.”

Liverpool follow their game at Villa Park with next Tuesday’s trip to Southampton and conclude their season at home to Wolves.

City, now 1/10 in the Premier League winner odds, are at Wolves on Wednesday, West Ham on Sunday and end the season at home to Aston Villa.

Champions League

The Reds finally got over the line but had to survive a first-half scare in their Champions League semi-final second leg against Villarreal.

Leading 2-0 from the first leg at Anfield where the Yellow Submarine failed to have a shot on target, the Reds were feeling confident of reaching the final for the second time in four years.

However, debut goals from Boulaye Dia and Francis Cocquelin levelled the tie heading into the break, but the game turned on the introduction of Luis Diaz and a terrible 45 minutes for goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli as Liverpool scored three times to advance 5-2 on aggregate.

Klopp said: “With 500 games the boys played, a completely normal thing like the first half can happen but how we reacted and how it happened is special.

“I know supporters of other clubs might have been happy with the first half and that we got a ‘knock’. It is really difficult to reach three finals (in one season), which is probably the reason why no-one did it so far but we made it happen. When the finals show up in our schedule we will make sure we are ready for it.”

FA Cup

Liverpool’s pulsating 3-2 victory over Manchester City in the last four ensured they will meet Chelsea in a cup final for the second time this season.

The Reds are 1/2 to lift the trophy on Saturday as they did at Wembley just over two months ago, while Chelsea’s struggles since the club was thrown into chaos by government-imposed sanctions means they are 7/5 to win the FA Cup.

The Blues are appearing in their fifth final in six years, but have won just once during that spell and Thomas Tuchel will not feel confident about adding another trophy to the cabinet following Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Wolves.
