Liverpool gained vital ground in the race for a top-four finish with a 2-0 victory over Spurs at Anfield on Wednesday and SkyBet have cut Liverpool’s odds to 15/8 to finish fourth.
The win over their top four rivals has lifted some pressure off troubled manager Rafa Benitez whose odds of lasting the season have been shortened to 4/7 (from even money).
The Reds now sit in sixth place in the table and are a point off of Tottenham and Manchester City. SkyBet make Liverpool 1/2 odds to finish fifth or lower this year.
SkyBet’s soccer betting spokesman Dale Tempest said: “Liverpool’s home form has always been pretty good but with only four wins from 11 away games the real challenge for Rafa will come away from Anfield.”
