Liverpool is one of the largest, well-known and most widely supported football clubs in the world. The Reds are one of the most successful clubs in England with 18 First Division titles and 7 FA Cups, while their 8 League Cup triumphs are unmatched by any other English club. Liverpool are also England’s most successful club in European competitions, with 11 major trophies. Their record of five Champions Leagues is bettered only by Real Madrid and Inter Milan.
Liverpool’s best years were in the 1970’s and 1980’s under the management of Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley, who led the club to eleven league titles and seven European trophies. While the club has won seven major trophies since the turn of the century, most recently their League Cup victory in 2012, it is clear that the fans of the Reds expect nothing other than Premier League success, and are not pleased that no such triumph has occurred since the 1989/90 season.
A name synonymous with Liverpool is Steven Gerrard, possibly the greatest player to ever call Anfield home. Gerrard made 710 appearances for the Reds and features prominently in just about every club highlight between 1998 and 2015. Possibly his greatest ever moment was lifting the 2005 UEFA Champions League trophy after almost single-handedly dragging his side back from a 3-0 half-time deficit.
Liverpool have been blessed with countless other fantastic players over the years. Kenny Dalglish and Graeme Souness, who both returned to manage the club, Ian Rush, Jamie Carragher, Ray Clemence and Ron Yeats are just a handful of the legends that have played for the club throughout history. More recently, big names like Fernando Torres and Louis Suarez have helped instill the Reds as one of the biggest clubs in the land.
Arguably the most important signing in the club’s recent history is manager Jürgen Klopp. The top job at Anfield is one of the most heavily scrutinized in all word football due to the weight of expectation from fans all over the world (and due to the club experiencing it’s longest league title drought). The former Borussia Dortmund manager appears to be one of the few that has the personality to hold the throne, and the start to his Liverpool career has been promising, reaching the League Cup final in 2016 despite having only joined the club three months prior.
With his own squad and a whole season to shape it, the Reds could finally come close to obtaining that elusive title. Whatever happens, you can bank on fanatical Liverpool supporters from all over the world to ride every fixture as the season progresses.

Bet On Liverpool Games
In the early years of the English Premier League, Liverpool was considered one of the Premier League’s ‘big four’ clubs alongside Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea owing to their dominance and likelihood of finishing each season in fourth place or higher.
The emergence of clubs like Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have basically resulted in this theory being thrown out the window as you now have a number of clubs trying to squeeze into the European places. Once a powerhouse of European football, Liverpool have struggled to even make it abroad, qualifying for the Champions League only once this decade. 2016/17 will be the third season in this time period in which the club is not in Europe altogether.
In spite of this, there is newfound optimism at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp has brought a new style, attack-minded players and with that has come results. Liverpool have overnight transformed from a team plagued by inconsistent results into a side that scores goals for fun. Players like Sadio Mane, holder of the Premier League’s fastest ever hat-trick, Philippe Coutinho and Firmino could well be the Premier League’s most potent attacking threat.
Liverpool fixtures of late have featured plenty of goals, so be sure to consider this when placing wagers on results, goal markets and correct score markets.
One notable trend in Liverpool performances is their ‘outscore the opposition’ approach to fixtures. It has become apparent that while the team may concede goals, they have the self-belief to simply score more than their opponents, and to date, this appears to be working well for them. If you can find good odds on a ‘both teams to score’ wager, it’s never a bad idea when Liverpool are involved.
Liverpool have intense rivalries with a number of other clubs given their stature as one of England’s historical greats. While Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City matches all provide quality tests for the Reds, there is no rivalry quite like their local contests against Everton. The Merseyside derby is one which is always closely contested and has a reputation as the most explosive and ill-disciplined in the country, with more red cards than in any other fixture. Perhaps a wager on a player to be sent from the field is the way to go when these two meet?
Arguably bigger than the Merseyside derby is the club’s rivalry with Manchester United. Historically the biggest clubs in two cities already at odds with each other, these two giants have been fighting for the title of England’s greatest club for over a century. It is interesting to note the rarity of both these teams experiencing success at the same time. Manchester United had their biggest drought during Liverpool’s golden era in the 1970’s and 1980’s, while the Reds are currently in their longest break between titles as they have watched United dominate. The retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson may prove a catalyst for the pendulum to swing back into Liverpool’s corner.
Could this be the season that the Red’s capitalize on the Red Devils’ demise? One thing is a certainty – watching the Reds play is always an intense and exciting affair, and with great odds across a variety of lines on all Premier League fixtures the experience becomes that much more enthralling.
