BETTING & MATCH ODDS
Liverpool are heavy 2/13 favourites according to dabblebet, with Swansea priced at 18/1 to beat the Reds. A bet that Liverpool will make it four draws out of five EPL games is priced at 17/1.
Liverpool jumped out to a 2-0 advantage on Arsenal in London on Friday, only to fall behind 3-2 over the space of five minutes and then snatch a point thanks to a Roberto Firmino equalizer.
A showdown with bottom-of-the-table Swansea, who have played one game under interim boss Leon Britton following the firing of Paul Clement, will be expected to result in three points for Jurgen Klopp's men. But Liverpool have dropped points in their last two home games, with a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside Derby against Everton and a scoreless match against West Brom.
With Tottenham again finding form, Liverpool will need to make the most of contests against Swansea, Leicester City and a tricky Burnley side, before a difficult two matches, first in the FA Cup against Everton and then a Premier League showdown with Manchester City.
Meanwhile Swansea will be looking to repeat a bit of history. In January 2017, the relegation-threatened Swans traveled to Anfield and walked away with a 3-2 victory over the Reds, a key moment in their road to safety last season.
