Liverpool to march on

Published On August 27, 2013 | By dominic | David S, Latest news, Sports News, Star Spreads

Liverpool last met Notts County in 1992 when the Reds prevailed 4-0 and I think a similar scoreline could be on the cards at Anfield tonight.

There’s a sudden air of optimism on Merseyside and, whilst it’s early days, you can’t fault the start of Liverpool in the Premier League.

Two wins out of two and that looks even sweeter with the hindsight of Manchester City’s flop at Cardiff and the rather drab 0-0 draw last night between Man U and Chelsea at Old Trafford.

A lot of water has passed under the bridge since 1992 – the teams for one were in the same league in those days.

1992 Div 1 (old) Liverpool 4 – 0 Notts Co
1991 Div 1 (old) Notts Co 1 – 2 Liverpool
1984 Div 1 (old) Notts Co 0 – 0 Liverpool
1983 Div 1 (old) Liverpool 5 – 0 Notts Co
1983 Div 1 (old) Liverpool 5 – 1 Notts Co
1982 Div 1 (old) Notts Co 1 – 2 Liverpool
1982 Div 1 (old) Liverpool 1 – 0 Notts Co
1982 Div 1 (old) Notts Co 0 – 4 Liverpool
1982 Div 2 (old) Notts Co 0 – 2 Liverpool
1982 Div 2 (old) Liverpool 4 – 0 Notts Co

This Capital One tie won’t be high on either manager’s agendas this season – but Brendan Rodgers will be keen to keep a winning momentum going and even with a sub-strength side this should be a stroll in the park for Liverpool against a Notts County side who have made a poor start to the season with just a point.

Tonight’s match will come too soon for defender Martin Skrtel (knee) while fellow centre-back Sebastian Coates (knee) is a long-term casualty and forward Luis Suarez continues to serve his suspension.

Even with that taken into account a buy on Star Spreads of the Liverpool / Notts County supremacy at around 2.55 should be rewarded.
