Wigan Athletic v Liverpool: Can the Reds gun down the Latics?


Bookmark and Share

Did you know Liverpool haven't won at the DW Stadium since 2007? Up to that point Wigan were always an easy three points for the giants from Anfield, but not any more. However, with the goal threat of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge to complement the midfield drive of Steven Gerrard, will this be the day the Reds get back to winning ways at Wigan?

The Latics were in fine form last weekend against Reading, seeing off their relegation rivals with ease 3-0. It's usually around this time of the season when Wigan start to hit form and blitz all those who stand in their way. They have moved out of the relegation zone following that win over the Royals but can they remain outside the danger zone by beating Liverpool?

Wigan stunned the Kop last season by winning at Anfield but Liverpool got revenge earlier this season by blowing them apart 3-0 at Anfield. Can they record their first double over the Latics for six years?

Liverpool haven't won on their travels in the league during 2013 while Wigan have the joint worst home defensive record in the top flight. I expect goals in this game but who will come out on top? Our pundits have their say.

Wigan v Liverpool; Kick Off 5.30pm March 2 2013
