Swansea v Liverpool Prediction & Betting Tips, 22nd January 201820th January 2018 / lee
Swansea v Liverpool Premier League Preview, 22nd January 8.00pm
The Swans won’t be looking forward to this match. They are in desperate need of points and taking on a confident Liverpool side who just took a win over Manchester City, is probably the last kind of thing that they need at the moment. It is desperate times for the Swans and if ever they needed an unexpected three points, it’s here. Swansea though are 17/2 underdogs at bet365 for the victory with the draw at 17/4 and Liverpool at 3/10* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 8:49 p.m.)
Swansea News and Form
The Swans head into the weekend four points adrift of safety and by the time that they play on Monday night that gap could well be bigger. So there is immense pressure on them at the moment and they need to drive their way to something in this one. They have been a little bit more competitive under new boss Carlos Carvalhal and saw off Wolves in an FA Cup replay in midweek. They collected a point last time out in the Premier League as well, playing out a 1-1 draw at Newcastle. It leaves them W1 D2 L2 in their last five league games. Overall at home this season the Swans are just W2 D2 L7 for the season and they suffered a 2-0 home loss against Spurs last time out at home. Their output in front of goal so far this season has been pretty dire, with just six goals at home all season in their eleven played and that will likely just throw fire on Liverpool to win to nil wager at bet365. The Swans have failed to score in over half of their home games so there is a trend running there for sure. Just 27% of their home games have made it over the 2.5 goal line. So this may not be a high scoring game, even though Liverpool are involved.
Liverpool News and Form
The Reds are now on a four-match winning streak in the Premier League and they are now unbeaten since a 4-1 reverse at Tottenham back on October 22nd. So it’s been fine form from them and they have scored at least two goals in each of their last six games played. They were the first side to beat Manchester City this season in the top flight as they held out for a 4-3 victory at Anfield last weekend. Their rate of scoring has been strong away from Anfield with the Reds averaging 2.6 goals per game on the road. Their defence hasn’t been good on the road though with an average of just under two goals per game conceded. So they are prone to lapses at the back, but they will fancy their chances of a clean sheet here. They are unbeaten in six away games now and they have scored in each of their last nine away from Anfield. In the bet365 correct score market a Liverpool 2-0 option is at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 18th, 2018 at 9:14 p.m.). Liverpool have opened the scoring in 8 of their 11 Premier League away games this season and a Liverpool/Liverpool half time/full time bet looks a decent proposition for the fixture.
Swansea v Liverpool Head to Head
Liverpool were comfortable 5-0 winners over Swansea earlier in the season but the two of them have traded wins over the last four meetings so things are even at two wins each. At the Liberty Stadium, Liverpool have lost just one of their last five Premier League visits with a W2 D2 L1 record there in that sequence. Each of the last four league meetings have made it over the 2.5 goal line.
Who will win – Swansea v Liverpool Predictions
Liverpool are just rampant in front of goal and they have been in great scoring form on the road. They should collect the three points in this one but even though they are prone to letting the odd goal slip here and there, it is worth having a poke on Liverpool to win to nil for the Liberty Stadium clash.
