Swansea v Liverpool Betting Preview

Date: 22/01/18

Time: 20:00

Venue: Liberty Stadium

Channel: Sky Sports 1/Premier League

In-form Liverpool travel to bottom of the league Swansea City tonight, as they look to extend their un-beaten league run to 15 games.

Liverpool, who have won seven of the last 10, come up against a side who have won just four times all season and just two in the last 16.

Swansea have a decent record against the Reds of late however, winning two of the last four but were beaten by them 5-0 at Anfield just last month.

This fixture has seen goals in the last few meetings; there has been over 2.5 goals in four of the last five and both teams to score has landed in three of the last five. The bookies have priced over 2.5 at 13/19 so might not be enough for most but Liverpool to win and over 2.5 at 10/11 might be a slightly better bet for most as over 2.5 goals has won in all of Liverpool’s last seven away games.

Given how good Liverpool have been and how poor Swansea have been, it is hard to look past The Reds winning this one whilst scoring a few in the process. Liverpool to score 3+ goals at 5/4 with Coral looks to be a good way to go, especially with the likes of Salah, Mane and Firmino against the worst defence in the league. Jurgen Klopp’s men have scored at least two goals in their last 6 away games.

Team News
