Liverpool go into this as firmer than firm favourites.
These are unsettling times at Anfield and Roy cannot be unaware that he will be under the microscope even for a game which ought to be meaningless, like this one. So will he opt for using this as a run out for the youngsters or will nerves get the better of him?
My guess is he’s emotionally fried managing this team and he will play a relatively strong side and hope to sub off the names safely as the goals go in, or FC demonstrate they aren’t really up to it.
2-0 is a respectable 11/2 a more conservative N’Gog to score first and that to be it, Liverpool win 1-0 is 16/1.
Fancy FC to stage a comeback? Liverpool to lead at Half Time but fail to win the game is 14/1.
What is nailed on is that Roy won’t have any ‘meaningless’ games anytime soon.
