With Liverpool now resurgent under Jurgen Klopp and coming into this game after their best performance of the season the bookmakers and the public have gone a little Liverpool crazy and the reds are now a very heavy favourite against a struggling Swansea team. Liverpool have put together really good counter attacking games against Chelsea and Manchester City, pressing high and utilising their pace on the counter attack along with the finishing prowess of Couthino and Benteke. Jurgen Klopp has brought a strong work ethic to the team and in captain James Milner he has an advocate who embodies hard work. Liverpool have deserved the good results they have gotten in recent weeks and a win here will leave them just five points off second place in the league.
Swansea City are really struggling at the moment, they cant buy a win lately and there is pressure mounting on Gary Monk. With just one win in their last ten the Swans really need to start picking up pointsas they have fallen to fourteenth and are just four points off the drop zone. With a strong midfield and two quality strikers its a bit of a mystery as to why things have started to fall apart for Swansea but I think that they will come good in the coming weeks. Andre Ayew and Gomis have been excellent this season along with Icelandic superstar Guylfi Sigurddson and former Liverpool midfielder Jon Jo Shelvey. Swansea will not roll over here and I expect a performance from them.
I dont see the value in taking Liverpool at these short odds, to be honest I still dont trust this team and I think Swansea are just the type of team to turn them over. But I'm going to take both teams to score here as I see some problems still with Swansea's defence and Liverpool's defence. This is too decent attacking teams though and I think we could be instore for a good game here.
