Preston vs Liverpool: Reds to come through cup test

Kick-off: 1945, 27/10/2021

Stadium: Deepdale

TV: Sky Sports

Liverpool will travel to Preston on a high after Sunday’s big win over Manchester United and should enjoy more success in the EFL Cup.

Jurgen Klopp will obviously make changes at Deepdale, though, and North End have a good record on home turf, so this could be a good game to watch.

Let’s go with 165/100 for an away win and both teams to score as our first Preston vs Liverpool prediction.

A Look At Preston North End’s Betting Odds

Preston are coming off a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Blackpool which left them just three places above the Championship drop zone.

However, the Lilywhites are on a six-match unbeaten run at Deepdale in that division after previously beating Coventry 2-1.

In this competition, Frankie McAvoy’s side have fired in 11 goals to get through three rounds in impressive fashion.

North End won 3-0 at Mansfield and then 4-2 away to Morecambe before brushing aside Cheltenham 4-1 at this venue.

Leading marksman Emil Riis Jakobsen struck four of this season’s nine goals in those matches and the 6ft 3in Dane will be a handful up front if given another run-out here.

McAvoy urged his side to start matches better following Saturday’s loss at Bloomfield Road, declaring: “It’s no use doing it when we’re 1-0 down, we need to do it from the beginning.”

Looking at the 3/1 for both teams to score in the first half.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

Klopp has not put too much emphasis on this tournament in the past but fielded a pretty strong line-up when Liverpool won 3-0 at Norwich in round three.

Japan international Takumi Minamino bagged a brace at Carrow Road and Divock Origi improved his EFL Cup record to 10 goals from 14 games.

The Reds did make nine changes that night but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita, Joe Gomez, Curtis Jones and Ibrahima Konate also started.

Old Trafford injuries to Keita and James Milner may force Klopp to urge on the side of caution with his selections at Deepdale.

However, any youngsters coming in will be well schooled and the feelgood factor running through the club after Sunday’s 5-0 romp should be evident.

Let’s add 3/1 for the visitors to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the multiple correct score market to our Preston vs Liverpool betting tips.
