Liverpool vs Plymouth Argyle Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Liverpool will be aiming to progress in the 4th round of the FA Cup when they welcome Plymouth at the Anfield on Sunday at lunchtime. Liverpool had the lead twice thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge and Sadio Mane, but Sunderland come back from behind each time and both sides had to settle for a 2-2 draw. Meanwhile, Plymouth were beaten 1-0 on the road at Barnet last time out in League Two, with Derek Adams’ men conceding the goal in the first 14 minutes of the game. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Liverpool Preview

Jurgen Klopp’s men have enjoyed an incredible 2016/2017 competitive season over the past three months, losing just once in their last 22 games across all competitions. Their sole defeat in this term was a narrow 4-3 loss on the road against Bournemouth at the beginning of December 2016. Liverpool enter the fray off the back of a six-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League, scoring at least two goals in four of these. The Reds currently stand in second position in the Premier League table with 44 points under their belts after 20 rounds, five points off the current leaders Chelsea. Liverpool are the division’s topscorers with 48 goals in 20 rounds with Sadio Mane leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 9 goals under his belt. Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino have also enjoyed a decent Premier League campaign, as the pair have bagged 13 goals and 10 assists between them. At Anfield, Liverpool have won nine and drawn two of their eleven games in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in nine of these. Liverpool’s recent record in the FA Cup has been a complete mixed bag with two defeats, two draws and one win in their last five games in the competition. Last year, Liverpool were eliminated in the 4th round of the competition, losing 2-1 at West Ham in extra time.

Plymouth Preview

Plymouth, on the flip side, were on a six-game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their 1-0 away defeat at Barnet last time out in League Two. Despite this loss, Plymouth still sit in second place in the League Two table with 48 points to their name after 24 rounds, four points off the current leaders Doncaster. They are hoping to finally secure promotion this year, following back-to-back playoff heartbreaks in League Two. Plymouth’s secret for their good performances throughout this League Two campaign has been their solid defence, as they only conceded 25 goals in 24 league fixtures. On the road, Plymouth have been alternating victories with defeats over the past two months, winning six and losing four in the process. Regarding their current FA Cup campaign, Plymouth Argyle already managed to beat Mansfield and Newport County in the first two rounds of the competitions. This is already a performance for Plymouth, as they were eliminated in the first rounds of the competition over the past four years. A player to watch here is Graham Carey, as the 27-year-old midfielder is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts in League Two with 9 goals in his 24 league appearances.

Liverpool Team News

Danny Ings, Sadio Mane and Cameron Brannagan are all missing through injury, while James Milner, Daniel Sturridge, Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson are all doubts. The good news is that Philippe Coutinho and Marko Grujic are both back in training.

Plymouth Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Plymouth ahead of this trip.

Betting Predictions and Tips

The difference in class between these two sides is quite obvious, so there shouldn’t be any doubts about the winner in this one. Even if Jurgen Klopp decides to rest some of his star turns, Liverpool should have no problems in registering a victory in this match. Although, for more value, I’m backing Liverpool to score a couple of goals in this game.
