Liverpool v Wigan Athletic: Can the Latics stun the Reds at Anfield again?


Bookmark and Share

Liverpool v Wigan

Liverpool earned a well-earned point at Chelsea last Sunday but how will they fare when they host Roberto Martinez's Wigan this weekend?

The Latics stunned the Reds last season by recording their very first win at Anfield and Martinez would love to make it two-in-a-row. The visitors have won two of their past three league outings - included a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane - and will have no fear of travelling to Anfield.

Liverpool are starting to show signs that Brendan Rodgers' philosophy is beginning to take shape. They are becoming harder to beat and creating a lot of chances, but they remain far too reliant on Luis Suarez.

Did you know it's been more than five years since Liverpoool last beat Wigan by two clear goals? A brace from Dirk Kuyt in April 2007 got the job done then, but who can score the goals to send Liverpool into the top half and can they stop Wigan from scoring?

The Latics are only a point behind Liverpool in the table but the majority of our pundits are expecting a home win here.
