Liverpool takes a one goal lead into the second leg of the Capital One Cup against Stoke on Tuesday night at Anfield. The only goal of the first leg came from Reds youngster Jordon Ibe and it has given Jurgen Klopp a slight advantage for the second leg.

Klopp’s men are currently odds of 3/ 4 with BetVictor to claim the win, which does not offer much value for the punter. The side from Merseyside are highly unpredictable, so the home win is not so safe.

Brazilian international Roberto Firmino has found form in recent weeks and scored two goals last time out in the extraordinary 5-4 win at Norwich. The former-Hoffenheim star is odds of 29/20 with BetVictor to find the net once again in this one.

Stoke are experiencing decent season, but a 3-0 defeat at league leaders last time out showed that their usually solid defence are not completely infallible. The Potters will be big underdogs to progress to the final and are odds of 9/2 with William Hill.

The Potters hopes of progression may depend on whether star winger Marko Arnautovic recovers from injury in time to feature in crucial clash. The Austrian has been a key player for the Potters this season, but missed the defeat against Leicester through injury.

Big Tips

Liverpool have been incredibly inconsistent this season, sometimes good, sometimes poor, so it makes their games hard to predict. However, I do believe that Klopp’s team will come out on top.

The side from Merseyside have looked good going forward of late and the tip I am going for is over 2.5 goals scored.
