Monday night football from the Libery stadium in Swansea as the home side take on Liverpool in what should be an entertaining game. Swansea are one of those team in the league that are stuck in mid table but on their day could beat anyone.Gomis and Ki are forming a partnership up top and Sigurddson is the key figure in midfield, Gary Monk has put his faith in this squad of players and with Dyer and Routledge on the wins Swansea have genuine width and ability to create chances. Swansea did send Wilfred Bony to Manchester City in the january transfer window but they will be hoping Gomis can fill the void left by Bony's exit. It wont be easy but Gomis has shown signs of being able to eventually replace Bony's efforts and goals.
Liverpool are the in form team in the Premier League right now, Liverpool have won seven of their last eight and will be looking to close the gap on the top four when they face Swansea on Monday night. Brendan Rodgers will be looking to Jordan Henderson the stand in captain in Stephen Gerrards absence and with Henderson's form being so good he may be Liverpool's future captain when Gerrard moves on in the summer. With Sterling, Sturridge and Couthino lighting up the league with goals and creativity it will probably come down to these three to inspire Liverpool creatively.
Monday night football from Wales is going to be tricky to handicap. In the reverse fixture Liverpool played well and won 4-1 but I think that game was a little flattering to the reds. Swansea have been strong at home and with the exception of one poor performance against Chelsea the Swans have been really tough to beat. I'm going to take Swansea on the handicap here, I think the home side will come away with something from this one maybe even a suprise win.
