OddsLiverpool 17/20, Draw 11/4, Chelsea 16/5

A Premier League title challenge is already out of the question for both Liverpool and Chelsea this season, with a place in the top four also a distant prospect at present.

Ten points separate both the Reds and the Blues from fourth-placed Newcastle United heading into the weekend action, so claiming all three points at Anfield at lunchtime is an absolute necessity.

These two sides met four times last season and all four games ended in draws, with Liverpool lifting both the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup by virtue of penalty shootout successes, while their Anfield clash ended in a 1-1 draw - which can be backed at 7/1 in the Correct Score market for this encounter.

Five-time Australian Open runner-up Andy Murray has thrilled the Melbourne crowd with astonishing five-set victories over Matteo Berrettini and Thanasi Kokkinakis to reach the third round, where he takes on Spanish 24th seed Roberto Bautista Agut.

Bautista Agut was pushed all the way in his second-round win over Brandon Holt, with the 34-year-old hoping to repeat his career-best year of 2019, when he reached the last eight in Melbourne and the semi-finals of Wimbledon.

These two players have met on six previous occasions and are locked at three wins apiece, with Bautista Agut having edged a five-setter against Murray in the first round of the Australian Open during his successful 2019 campaign.

Murphy defeated Anthony McGill 5-4 in his quarter-final on Friday, while Trump enjoyed a slightly more comfortable 5-3 victory over Xiao Guodong in his last-eight match.

Should this encounter go to a decisive 11th frame, Trump is 11/2 to prevail, with Murphy available at 7/1.
