Liverpool have reportedly had a bid for Swansea midfielder Joe Allen rejected as Brendan Rodgers goes back to his old club to pick up the midfield maestro. He may not have signed yet but William Hill have him at 2/1 to start 26 or more games for the Anfield club this season, 11/4 between 21 and 25, 11/4 between 16 and 20 and 11/4 between 11 and 15. It is 9/2 that he starts less than ten games.
Despite Brendan Rodgers appointment as the Reds manager they are still expected to come up short in the race for Champions League football. They are 4/7 to finish between fifth and tenth, 11/5 for between second and fourth and 10/1 to finish between 11th and 17th. It is 25/1 that Liverpool win the Premier League and 80/1 that they will be playing Championship football in 2013/14.
Allen is the kind of pace dictating midfielder that Rodgers likes in his teams and it is fully expected that Liverpool will go back to Swansea with another offer, said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.
Gareth Bale has come in for criticism after he scored overnight to help Tottenham to a 1-1 draw at LA Galaxy despite being ruled out of the Olympics through injury. He is 1/10 to start Tottenhams first game of the Premier League season and 11/2 he doesnt.
