Liverpool take on Swansea on Monday night football from Anfield with both teams looking for a win that would move them one spot up in the league table. Swansea come into this after winning back to back games for the first time since August. The Swans are playing well and with Sigurddson and Bony in the side they have both creativity and goals. Bony in particular has been tremendous in recent weeks scorign four in his last six starts.The Ivorian is a handful at the best of times and has good movement to go with his strength and strong finishing ability. Swansea will fancy their chances here of causing something of an upset against a Liverpool team that have been coming around of late.
Liverpool come into this game having won two of their last three. Of course they have won only one of their last five home games and have really struggled to score goals in recent weeks. Daniel Sturridge may be back on the bench for this game which would be a boost to Brendan Rodgers side who have started to be heavily reliant on Raheem Sterling since Sturridge's injury. Anfield will be rocking on Monday night and this is a huge game for the reds a win tonight will leave Liverpool only five points from fourth and Champions League football.
Personally I cant take liverpool as heavy favourites against a Swansea team that have proven tough to beat this season. Taking Swansea on the handicap is the value play here and that is where I am going. I might spread a little on the away win as well as 9/2 seems a huge price.
