Premier League: Liverpool vs. Blackpool Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Liverpool vs. Blackpool Free Live Stream: This will be Kenny Dalglish‘s first Premier League match in charge of Liverpool since Roy Hodgson was fired as the club’s manager. Hodgson was hired in July to replace Rafael Benitez, who, incidentally, was also recently axed as Inter Milan’s boss.
Dalglish lost the opening match of his second tenure as Liverpool manager in Sunday’s FA Cup defeat at Manchester United and he will be hoping for a response in tonight’s encounter against Blackpool.
“If they think I can help, then I will help any which way I can,” said the 59-year-old Scottish tactician. “If someone comes up to me and says, ‘Kenny, we don’t think you are right,’ there’s no way am I ever going to [stand in the way.] But if the club say ‘Please, on you go,’ it won’t be a problem.”
This match was postponed in December due to severe weather conditions. But the Seasiders have already beaten Liverpool in the EPL this season, claiming three points at Anfield on October 3rd. That defeat continued the Merseysiders’ bad start to the 2010/11 campaign which has now left them trailing United by a whopping 19 points.
The Reds have lost five of their last eight league games and currently sit in 12th place, four points above the relegation zone. They have scored only seven goals in their last 11 EPL away games and not more than once in any of those fixtures.
Meanwhile, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will miss tonight’s game after being sent off in the FA Cup defeat at Old Trafford. The 30-year-old talismanic playmaker received a straight red card in the 32nd minute for a rough challenge on Michael Carrick, which the Red Devils won courtesy of Ryan Giggs’ first-minute penalty.
Jamie Carragher and Jay Spearing remain sidelined because of injuries, while Blackpool is likely to be without Elliot Grandin, Malaury Martin, Marlon Harewood, Matt Gilks and Billy Clarke.
The match kicks-off at 20:00 GMT.
UPDATE: Blackpool defeated Liverpool 2-1 to complete a Premier League double over the Anfield club.
