Betting Tip: @ Philippe Coutinho to score @ 11/8 with bet365

Liverpool aren’t a team to be trusted when it comes to punting (unless you’re a shrewd layer of the Reds) and the bottom line is that Jurgen Klopp’s side have won just one of their previous eight games in all competitions.

Since beating Arsenal 4-0, things have gone a bit awry despite some bright performances, with Sevilla and Spartak Moscow both landing a point in Champions League clashes, while Leicester are the only team beaten in the Premier League.

Even that 3-2 win over the Foxes was hard work. Despite being completely dominant in that game, they were only a Jamie Vardy converted penalty away from letting that one slip.

Liverpool don’t have a winning mentality at the moment and there’s a fair degree of pressure on the Reds going into Tuesday’s match in Maribor where they’ll face a team with little to lose from having a go at more illustrious opponents.

Sadio Mane is a notable absentee for this clash and there was a distinct lack of focal attacking point on Saturday against Manchester United despite dominating.

Mohamed Salah has largely been a revelation although the Egyptian isn’t the sure-footed finisher that you might think, with the winger missing many easy chances already for his new club.

Roberto Firmino continues to be less of a natural centre forward although we’re happy to have a punt on Philippe Coutinho who is often the player who finds the necessary moment of magic.

The Brazilian scored in three consecutive matches before that goalless draw on Saturday and it should also be noted that he was joint-top scorer for the Reds last season in the Premier League.
