Carroll Becomes The Main Man For Liverpool…transfer Specials

Luis Suarez started his eight game ban against Manchester City and Andy Carroll will need to come to the party. Hills are betting on how many goals Carroll scores in the next seven matches and make one goal the 5/2 favourite. He is 11/4 to bag two and 7/2 to score three. Carroll is 7/2 to draw a blank in the entirety of Suarez’s absence.

“Andy Carroll has had a difficult start to his Liverpool career and for the first time since arriving at Anfield, he will be the focal point of the side’s attacks for a sustained period of time,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “It is now time for him to start performing and we think that while he may not sparkle, he should get a couple of goals for the cause.”

Jermain Defoe was on target for Spurs as they defeated West Brom and William Hill think that he will remain a Spurs player come the end of the transfer window. He is 4/11 to still be at White Hart Lane and 2/1 to have left, with Newcastle the 3/1 favourites to be his next club after Spurs. Defoe is 13/8 to start England’s first Euro 2012 game (4/9 not to) and is 50/1 to be the Euro 2012 leading goalscorer. Spurs’ victory over WBA resulted in another three points in their quest to finish in the top four and Hills make them 2/7 to finish in the Champions League spots.

There are question marks over the futures of two more of English football’s top strikers and Hills offer 11/10 that Bobby Zamora leaves Fulham this window and Even money that Didier Drogba leaves Chelsea in the same time frame. Bolton are the 15/8 favourites to be Zamora’s next club, while there are three Chinese sides (Shanghai Shenhua, Guangzho Evergrande and Dakaub Aerbin) at 3/1 to be Drogba’s next club.
