Tottenham vs Southampton – Premier League : Swansea City’s history doesn’t promise a lot of excitement for the match that will close out the Boxing Day in England.
But the frustration that Liverpool will have from last Friday’s match won’t be very helpful for Jurgen Klopp’s men to get the 3 points out of this match.
This is a moment for both sides to leave their problems behind and, with the Christmas spirit, try to restart their path from here.
Liverpool has suffered another disappointment last Friday. Winning, in London, by a 2-goal lead, they conceded 3 goals against Arsenal in 5 minutes, and found themselves losing.
Luckily for the Reds, there was still time to score the tying goal. Only because it was on a round where, from the top 11 teams, only
Manchester City and Tottenham won their matches, Liverpool have kept their position.
But, also because of that, they weren’t able to take the advantage of climbing on the league table.
Swansea’s history is well-known. A season to forget, from a side that takes time to find their own dynamic and that seems to be heading for relegation to the Championship.
Paul Clement was fired and, for now, the team is being led by Leon Britton, that at 35 years of age will bring back the role of player-coach in the Premier League.
His debut was positive, with a draw at home against Crystal Palace, but they have too little points to imagine they will have a quiet rest of season.
In a certain way, they are forced to find the exact opposite in order to save themselves.
Liverpool vs Swansea – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a stage of the season where both teams are really fatigued due to the amount of matches played on a short period of time,
the number of injuries affecting Liverpool will balance things out against a Swansea in crisis. But I still think the Reds are favoured to win.
