Swansea vs Liverpool Tips
Liverpool have every reason to feel confident when they travel to Swansea on Saturday. The Reds have had a great season so far, while Swansea are still adjusting to life under Francesco Guidolin. He has been at the club since January, but things have been tough at the club recently. They find themselves sitting tentatively above the drop zones, with only four points from their opening six games. Liverpool lost at Burnley in their second match, but are otherwise unbeaten.
With pressure mounting on Guidolin, and other names such as Ryan Giggs and Chris Coleman being linked with a switch to the Liberty Stadium dugout, Swansea will be keen for their boys to get a result. Jurgen Klopp’s Gegenpress seems to have worked wonders in the top flight so far, though, so anything other than a Liverpool win would surely be a surprise. This preview brings you betting tips and predictions for the Premier League clash.
Swansea vs Liverpool Betting Tips: Winner
Liverpool are odds-on favourites to take the points in this one. They continually search for their first Premier League title, and while it is still early days in the season all the good signs are there that they can at least put up a good challenge. Other teams may look unbeatable right now, but vying for a place in the Champions League will certainly be a target, and as a result this is a game they will be looking to win. The Swans did beat Liverpool 3-1 in their last meeting back in May, but the Reds had won the five before that. The safest betting tip to offer at this stage is to make one of your predictions that Liverpool will win. That bet is 4/9.
Swansea vs Liverpool Betting Tips: Correct Score
Liverpool’s attacking line is pretty quick! They will be taking the game to Swansea’s defenders, and will be consistently looking for a path through and on to goal. In this preview we can certainly see them breaking through and being brought down in the box. One of our predictions here is that Liverpool will win the game 2-1, perhaps with the help of a penalty. We think they will win for sure, but the correct score is harder to predict – Liverpool’s loss to Burnley a few weeks ago highlights that they can be caught out if not paying full attention. Swansea could nab a goal, but Liverpool should sneak it. The 2-1 Reds win is available at 8/1.
Liverpool have a wealth of talent that Swansea may find tricky to keep an eye on. Phillipe Coutinho’s goals could be a major concern, and Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane and James Milner all have three each this season as well. It would perhaps be easier to list Swansea’s defensive line as players to watch, as they are likely to be the busiest in the match.
Jordi Amat, Mike van der Hoom and Lukasz Fabianski could be in for a tiring outing in this match, so keep an eye on their positioning and possibly even levels of desperation at times if the going is particularly tough. There could be mistakes to be made there.
