LEEDS United can be backed at 12-1 to win in 90 minutes at Anfield in Tuesday night’s EFL Cup quarter-final - with the Whites already trimmed in from 14-1 with Betway.

Liverpool sit second in the Premier League under manager Jurgen Klopp and are as short as 1-4 to win inside 90 minutes, despite the club’s growing injury list.

Even the draw is on offer at 11-2 with Marathon Bet, with Leeds 12-1 to win inside 90 minutes with Betfair.

Betway were offering 14-1 on Monday morning but those odds have been slashed to 11s.

Most betting firms are offering 2-7 about a regular win for the Reds, though a few layers are even shorter at 1-4.

Leeds are 7-1 just to qualify with Betway with Liverpool no bigger than 1-8 to get through with Bet365 but as short as 1-14 with a few firms.

The first eight players in the first goalscorer market play for the home side, with Daniel Sturrridge favourite at 7-2 with NetBet despite being an injury doubt.

A better bet might be second favourite Divock Origi at 4s, the same price as Sadio Mane.

Roberto Firmino, another injury doubt, is 21-5, with Georginio Wijnaldum next in the list at 8s, ahead of former Leeds favourite James Milner at 9s, along with Sheyi Ojo.

Ovie Ejaria is 10s to score first with Marko Grujic 11s and then finally two Leeds players - Chris Wood at 11-1 and Marcus Antonsson at 16s.

Leeds-wise, Kemar Roofe is 18s with Hado Sacko 22s.

No goalscorer is 22-1.

The bookies rate a 2-0 home win as the most likely outcome at 13-2, with a 3-0 win to the Reds on offer at 8s.

A 1-0 win for the Whites is 40-1, with 2-1 rated more likely at 33s.

But in a two-horse race in terms of the ‘to qualify’ market, it says it all about what the bookies think that Leeds are as big as 7-1.

They were, though, even bigger odds at Old Trafford in January 2010.
