Leeds United and Stuart Dallas in familiar territory for Liverpool clash and Jack Harrison threat forgotten
LEEDS United can again be backed at decent odds to topple another established Premier League big gun in tonight's clash against Liverpool at Elland Road (kick-off 8pm).
Marcelo Bielsa's Whites were available at just short of 10-1 in the days approaching last weekend's fixture at runaway leaders Manchester City yet those odds were left to look huge as a Stuart Dallas brace gave the ten-men visitors a 2-1 victory.
Despite his double at the Etihad, Dallas is still well down the pecking order in the first scorer market for tonight's fixture at 27-1 to net the game's opening goal and 17-2 as an any time scorer.
Reds 19-goal marksman Mo Salah, who netted a hat-trick in Liverpool s 4-3 win against Leeds at Anfield, is 33-10 favourite to score first, followed by team mates Diogo Jota (5-1) and Sadio Mane (27-5).
United's no 9 Patrick Bamford is fourth in the list at 7-1, just ahead of Liverpool's Roberto Firmino at 36-5.
Liverpool's Divock Origi who is injured is next at 15-2, followed by young United duo Sam Greenwood (10s) and Joe Gelhardt (11s) and also injury doubt Rodrigo (11s).
Greenwood and Gelhardt regularly take high prominence in the first scorer markets despite not featuring as yet and this week is no different.
Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri is also 11s, followed by Reds youngster Jake Cain at 12s and then United's star winger Raphinha at 13s.
United's Pablo Hernandez is next at 14s, the same odds as Liverpool's Curtis Jones who is another of the Reds players out injured.
Tyler Roberts is 15-1, the same price as Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Helder Costa is then 16s, the same odds as Naby Keita and just shorter than Mateusz Klich, Ian Poveda, James Milner and no goalscorer with all four of those options 18s.
Jack Harrison, who is back available after being ineligible to face City, looks a huge price at 30-1 with Sporting Index to net first and the same could be said of Reds full back Trent Alexander-Arnold at 28s.
From a Leeds point of view, Bamford at 21-10, Harrison at 9s and Raphinha (if fit) at 26-5 all look decent prices as any time goalscorers.
A 2-1 victory for Liverpool is favourite in the correct score market at 27-5, followed by a 1-1 draw at 9s, but Leeds just look a big price in general at just shy of 4-1 and a best available 19-5 to take all three points.
Jurgen Klopp's Reds are odds on across the board at a best-priced 8-11 and the draw is on offer at 18-5.
