Five straight wins is a sign of a team in the groove. Liverpool achieved the sequence three times when finishing second in 2009 and will do it again under Kenny Dalglish should they overcome Wigan, a club who have never won at Anfield. Both sides will have players coming back from slight injuries that prevented them from appearing internationally in midweek – Steven Gerrard and Martin Skrtel for Liverpool and James McCarthy for Wigan. Gary Caldwell is likely to revive memories of Paul Gascoigne at Lazio by playing in a mask to protect a fractured cheekbone.

Predicted line-ups:

• Liverpool have picked up more points than any other Premier League team since Kenny Dalglish's appointment

• Wigan have won just one of their 13 matches against teams in the top half of the table

• Liverpool have kept four consecutive clean sheets in the league – the last time they managed five was in Septmeber 2007 with the fifth being a win over Wigan

• Wigan won their last match but have not managed two in a row since March 2009

• Raul Meireles has scored four times in his last five league games after failing to find the net in his first 17

Well, we're in good form, can only see us beating Wigan at Anfield, won't be easy though. If anyone's going listen for a Birthday shout-out for Steven Walsh, one of my mates whose going.

Prediction: Liverpool 3-0 Wigan

Kuyt

Gerrard
