Swansea vs Liverpool: Carlos Carvalhal’s Swansea will face the big sensation team of the moment on the Premier League, Liverpool, that last week defeated Manchester City
The Reds are coming off a streak of 5 consecutive wins, started precisely against Swansea, on Boxing day, with a 5-0 battering, on a match where the Portuguese manager hadn’t joined the club yet.
Jurgen Klopp’s team has a lot of quality on the attacking front, even not having Coutinho, who left for Barcelona.
But they are still struggling to match that level defensively, which has been the big weakness of the work made by the German manager.
So far, the arrival of Van Dijk looks promising, but doesn’t really ensure clean sheets.
For the Portuguese manager, this has been a time to enjoy the opportunity of being in the Premier League.
The team has presented immediate signs of improvement on the way they played, with the points starting to appear and, on the FA Cup, despite needing a replay, they overcame Wolverhampton, who has been dominating the Championship.
It is a team, this Swansea, that shows they are ready to attack the difficult challenge of recovering ground towards avoiding relegation, being, right now, 4 points behind the first spots outside the relegation zone. Getting points in every match is almost required.
Although the Welsh recognize their opponent’s offensive potential, knowing they can’t recklessly go on the attack, it hasn’t been their characteristic to have very defensive approaches.
Swansea vs Liverpool – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This way, the most likely outcome is for us to watch an open match between these two sides.
With Liverpool’s best football setting the tone and having the initiative, but Swansea’s organizational ability also having a word to say and with them also being close to scoring.
Although the Reds are favoured to win here, Swansea will have the arguments to at least score a goal as well.
