Wigan Athletic v Liverpool Preview
Two teams heading in opposite directions meet in Monday night Football in the English Premier League. Liverpool have 11 points in their last six matches while Wigan have only three points in their last six matches. They haven’t won a match since January 16th against Wolves. Liverpool haven’t lost since December 19th against Portsmouth.
Wigan has Charlies N’Zogbia and Paul Scharner with injury concerns while Fabio Aurelio will be out for Liverpool. Glen Johnson and Daniel Agger could feature in the match but it will likely be a matchday decision. The two teams met in December as Liverpool won 2-1 at Anfield.
With Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard fit, the Reds will be the favorites heading into the match. Wigan has not been impressive this season and they are only one point above the relegation zone. The problem is not simple for Wigan as they have a -27 goal difference and only 26 goals scored in 27 matches. Liverpool’s away form has not been great but they are a different team from the first half of the season.
If Gerrard can control the midfield and link up then Torres it should be a long night for Wigan. They are led by Hugo Rodallega but if N’Zogbia and Scharner are out that take out their second and third leading scorers in the EPL. A win for either side would move them up two spots in the league table.
