Betting Tip: Crystal Palace -1.00 @ 2/1 with bet365

Steven Gerrard’s last ever home match for Liverpool. The final time that the legendary midfielder will lead out his team at Anfield, with tickets exchanging hands for thousands of pounds as supporters flock to watch their skipper play for the penultimate occasion.

Gerrard’s final season at Liverpool has been anti-climactic, with the Reds falling short of the Champions League spots and being dumped out of the FA Cup by Aston Villa when the sides recently met at Wembley.

The player himself blew his chances of a happy ending thanks to a moment of madness against Manchester United, although he will hope to produce one final display that bring the crowd to their feet.

Liverpool are predictably short to win this game, with the Merseyside team a best price 1/2 to beat Palace and that offers no value. The Eagles might have lost their past four games although Alan Pardew will surely have them fired up for their final away match of the season and they only lost 1-0 at Stamford Bridge recently.

The home side recently made hard work of beating QPR at Anfield, with Gerrard expected to play in an advanced position for this final home match, although the lack of attacking options has been a problem for Brendan Rodgers’ side for most of the campaign.

Perhaps this will also be the Anfield farewell for the likes of Glen Johnson, Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli, all of whom have looked surplus to requirements this term.

We might see a few goals although we’re happy to swerve backing Liverpool at such a short price.
