Liverpool vs Swansea City Preview, Betting tips and Predictions
Back the Reds to complete goal frenzy in Boxing Day Battering
Mohamed Salah to score first and Liverpool to net five or more – 19/1 with Ladbrokes
When in full flow it’s fair to say that Jurgen Klopp’s side are one of the most exciting sides to watch in the Premier League this season.
In their last fixture the Merseyside outfit played out an enthralling 3-3 draw away at Arsenal with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino all netting and Swansea City will face a daunting task in the late Boxing Day kick-off.
Swansea have appointed Leon Britton as caretaker boss.— BT Sport Score (@btsportscore) December 21, 2017
No manager has lasted more than a year at the club since 2015:
Alan Curtis(40 days)
Francesco Guidolin (259 days)
Bob Bradley (85 days)
Alan Curtis (7 days)
Paul Clement (352 days)
Leon Britton (Day 1...)
The Welsh side said farewell to Paul Clement earlier this month and caretaker boss Leon Britton must have hoped for something less of a baptism of fire than a trip to Anfield.
The Liberty Stadium side have won just one of their last 11 top tier matches and it would take a miracle for Swansea City to grab anything from their trip to Liverpool.
Egyptian Salah is arguably the best signing of the summer, having netted 15 times thus far in Premier League action, and the smart money is on the pint sized attacker to get in on the act against a very poor Swansea City side.
Liverpool must keep up their winning ways if they are to put pressure on the other sides battling for a top four spot.
If we can agree that Manchester City are champions elect then the race for second, third and fourth place is essentially where the betting will occur.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal are all in the running to clinch Champions League spots and the games come thick and fast over the festive period.
German boss Klopp will almost certainly be without skipper Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip but he has the strength in depth to cope without the pair for what should be a walk in the park.
Britton won’t have Kyle Naughton and could also have to make do without midfielder Leroy Fer for this 19.30 kick-off.
