Following the shocking defeats at the hands of West Bromwich Albion and then Zenit St. Petersburg, we are all hoping that we bounce back when we host Brendan Rodgers’ former club at Anfield on Sunday.
Earlier this season, Swansea did beat us at home and eliminated us from the Capital One Cup. Michael Laudrup’s team did manage to score three thanks to goals from Chico, Nathan Dyer and Jonathan De Guzman. Luis Suarez scored the only goal for Liverpool and the game finished 3-1. As far as the Barclays Premier League is concerned, the game at the Liberty Stadium ended in a o – 0 stalemate. We haven’t beaten Swansea since the Welsh club were promoted to the Premier League.
Daniel Sturridge should be available to start, the new signing has missed the last two games due to injury (for the WBA one) and Cup-Tied (for the Zenit one). Philippe Coutinho will likely start again from the bench, after his cameo appearance against the Baggies, Rodgers wants to ease him in. Martin Kelly is the only player not available for Brendan as he is still recovering from his cruciate knee ligament injury.
High riding Swansea are already in the Capital One Cup Final and currently sitting above Liverpool in the league with most of their threats coming from Michu. After the 4-1 rout of QPR last week, the Spaniard told the Swansea official website that he wants to score more goals. Swans Managers Michael Laudrup however was quoted by This is South Wales, “Liverpool are definitely a stronger team now than they were when we won there earlier in the season”.
Most bookmakers are offering a 4/7 for Liverpool on this game however I would fancy some of the odd at https://sports.bwin.com/en/sports/4/betting/football#sportId=4 however
Predicted Lineup : Pepe Reina, Daniel Agger, Jamie Carragher, Jose Enrique, Glen Johnson, Jordan Henderson, Lucas Leiva, Steve Gerrard, Stewart Downing, Daniel Sturridge, Luis Suarez
