I do not have any time to write proper match previews today (family commitments) or discuss the events of yesterday, including Brentford's fine win, but am sure to do that later in the week. Two selections only for me today in any case, one in Spain, which I will pass for purposes of the blog and another in the EPL, which I have touched on below. Bit risky in terms of the handicap and the home team's form, but I feel this is a massive game for Liverpool in relation to their season and they owe everyone, especially their fans, a performance......


Pool have to win this one, they dropped into the bottom three yesterday and without another home game for three weeks and the Merseyside derby up next, to go into the international break without a victory here would be an absolute disaster. On the slightly brighter side, a win would take them into the top ten and they will have captain and tailisman Steven Gerrrard back today after being rested in midweek, under the current circumstances it is impossible to over emphasise how important he and his goals are to Liverpool and I expect them to win with a degree of comfort this afternoon. Blackpool have pledged to attack, after paying the price for ditching their normally gung-ho approach at Stamford Bridge recently, where they were four down at the break and only Chelsea's mercy saved them from a frightful thumping. The Seasiders have conceded 18 in their last six and things have gone from bad to worse for them in games where they have conceded first. That opening goal will be key here too, if Pool can get their noses in front a confidence boosting three goal win is on the cards.

Liverpool -1.75 goals 2.23

Good Luck.
