There can be no question that Liverpool have been revitalised since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp last October, with the former Borussia Dortmund manager turning the Reds into potential title contenders in his first full season in charge. Liverpool have been a joy to watch, with the team setting the Premier League alight with superb, free-flowing attacking football that has resulted in them scoring thirty goals in their opening twelve fixtures. This, combined with Klopp’s infamous ‘gegenpress’ tactic, has made Liverpool a much more dynamic unit as they often remain on the front foot and put opposing teams under real pressure.
Liverpool will certainly fancy their chances of extending their unbeaten run in the league to eleven games against a struggling Sunderland side on home soil, with the visitors currently languishing in the relegation zone. Away fans may have more chance of winning than their team do by playing on a number of sports-themed slots available on Red Flush, and while doing so may see them hit the back of the net with their winnings, many do not fancy Sunderland’s chances of walking away from Anfield with anything other than another defeat on the record.
History would suggest that Liverpool are strong favourites to prevail, with Klopp’s men unbeaten in the last eight meetings between the two sides. Sunderland’s last victory against Liverpool came on March 2012 in a 1-0 at the Stadium of Light, while you have to go as far back as October 1983 for the last time the Mackems came out on top at Anfield by the same scoreline. David Moyes’ side have won their last two matches against Bournemouth and Hull to give them renewed hope of salvaging what was beginning to look like a desperate situation at the bottom of the table, but they face an uphill task in their quest to get something against a Liverpool side in red hot form. They may have more success by taking up the welcome bonus available on Red Flush and enjoying a few spins on Football Star, World Cup Mania or Shoot which offer the chance to hit the jackpot which has surpassed the $4 million dollar mark.
While Liverpool may be considered strong favourites to continue their unbeaten run and keep the pressure on current league leaders Chelsea, they will have to avoid the element of complacency which has cost them dear in the past. These are the sort of games that Liverpool are often accused of slipping up in, and while Klopp continues to make inroads into improving their backline, defensive errors remain their downfall. However, having the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino firing on all cylinders at the other end may carry Liverpool forward towards ending their twenty-seven year wait for a league title, with both players capable of producing moments of magic.
There is every chance that the game against Sunderland could see another incredible goal to match that of Xabi Alonso’s effort from his own half against Newcastle in 2006 – a goal that saw one lucky punter win over $42,000 dollars for his efforts. This is one of a number of bizarre bets listed on the blog section of Red Flush casino which also includes Luis Suarez’s infamous biting incident at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and a young man from England placing his entire life savings on red at the roulette table – and won. People may choose to keep it simple and play on over 700 games available on the website instead of placing their money on the most improbable of events, but Liverpool certainly have the quality amongst their ranks to pull off another special moment and continue their rich vein of form at Sunderland’s expense.
