Liverpool hosts Swansea City this Sunday at Anfield Road to measure up forces in a match where the three points could decide where either team will end after 12 remaining fixtures. We’ve chosen odds from William Hill for a match that has been moved to Sunday because of Swansea’s Thursday match against Napoli in Europa League.
The hosts are much stronger on home soil, as the wins against Everton and Arsenal can attest to. Many attribute this fact to the fans and the pressure they put on the visitors each and every time they come to Anfield. Liverpool is pushing towards securing the top four spot that would lead them automatically towards Champions League, and currently they are one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League table.
The Reds had a scare in the match against Fulham, but it took a late penalty from Steven Gerrard to secure the three points for Brendan Rodgers team. The recent loss to Arsenal in the FA Cup should be proof enough to see if the team can bounce back from it or not, especially knowing they dominated the match.
Swansea is on the 10th place in the Premier League table, with 28 points and a negative goal difference. They were also ousted from the FA Cup, and several days later they are forced to return to the same city where Everton won against them with 3-1. Considering both their important matches are just two days away, it would be interesting what they will do with their squad, whereas Liverpool should get back Glen Johnson and Jose Enrique. Hopefully Rodgers will also find patches for the defense and gain control over the midfield area, many balls were lost there in the match against Arsenal.
William Hill’s headline offer for this match is the bore draw money back one, which should offer value provided you put a single bet. Liverpool to win both halves goes for 1.70, and Liverpool to win and both teams to score is at 2.60, which is the exact market we are going to bet 6 units on.
