Premier League: Swansea vs Liverpool preview


Liverpool will be looking to extend their Premier League winning streak to four games when they visit Swansea for Saturday's early start at the Liberty Stadium. Last season Swansea won the home game against the Reds 3-1, but before that Liverpool had five consecutive wins in all competitions against the Swans. Overall, Liverpool won six out of the last twelve direct matches, while Swansea recorded three wins.

Swansea are going through a rough patch, they haven't won a match since August. That's five games without a victory in all competitions, and they lost four of them. Their last good result was a 2-2 draw at home against Chelsea, after that they lost two Premier League matches and also went out of the League Cup. Manager Francesco Guidolin is under pressure and another defeat could mark the end of his spell at Swansea. Nathan Dyer will be out for around two months, but Federico Fernandez might recover in time for Saturday's match.

Things are looking good for Liverpool as they recovered from the surprise defeat against Burnley in August and went on a six-match unbeaten streak, with five wins recorded. They snatched impressive wins in the process, most notably a 4-1 against reigning champions Leicester and a 2-1 at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. Sheyi Ojo is the only injured player in Jurgen Klopp's squad, while Joe Gomez still has to work on his fitness before being considered for a place in the starting eleven.

Probable line-ups:

Swansea: Fabianski - Rangel, Hoorn, Amat, Naughton - Barrow, Fer, Cork, Sigurdsson - Baston, Llorente

Liverpool: Karius - Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner - Lallana, Henderson, Wijnaldum - Mane, Firmino, Coutinho

My prediction: Liverpool to win 2-0.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Swansea win - 5.80
Draw - 4.75
Liverpool win - 1.44

    It was a tough tough game for Liverpool who still managed to clinch it in the end. That was a brave performance from the home team but not enough in the end.
    There is a huge drop in Swansea performance in the last couple of a seasons and they might end up in the Championship as a result of all that, it will be a tough season for them.
