Weekend Football Tips: Swansea Vs Liverpool
Swansea Vs Liverpool is always an entertaining match as there is a huge rivalry between the fans. Weekend football tips sites have the Swans as the underdogs even though they are playing at home. A lot will depend on which Liverpool team turns up as their inconsistency problems do not seem to have gone away, which is concerning if they want to qualify for the Champions League this season.
Swansea has started the season badly and if things do not improve fast manager Francesco Guidolin could be getting his P45 over the coming months. His team has only won once so far in their opening game against newly promoted Burnley F.C. The only other point they have managed is a surprise home draw against Chelsea that ended 2 – 2. Four points from six games are relegation form and they need to pick up points fast if they are not going to be dragged into a fight for survival. A lot of weekend football tips sites have Guidolin as an early favorite to lose his job and if they lose their next couple on the bounce, it may well be worth a punt.
Liverpool is full of promise and one out of every three games they play outstanding. If they could increase this margin they will be pushing for a top spot or even the title. I still think that Klopp needs another full season before they can be considered genuine contenders to win the Premier League. They let in too many goals and they do not have any leaders on the pitch that can get them fired up to play better when they are having an off day. Steven Gerrard has not been replaced and if they can find someone of his class to lead them, they will be a tough team to beat. The best football bets sites have them as the fifth favorite to win the league but I think they will fall short.
Liverpool is in the fourth spot which is the minimum requirement the board will expect from their German manager Klopp.They started the season off so brightly by beating Arsenal in a thrilling match away from home 3 – 4. Then typically they followed that stunning result up by losing to Burnley away from home 0 – 2. They managed to steady the ship by getting a hard-earned point away from home against Tottenham Hotspur and have since destroyed every team they have played since. On that run they have beaten former Champions Leicester City 4- 1 at home, Chelsea away 1 – 2 and in last weeks game they thrashed Hull City at home 5 – 1. On their current form, they should comfortably beat Swansea City and the best football bets sites agree to have them at the favorites.
I am predicting a high scoring game with Liverpool winning. I think that their high-pressure tactics will work well against Swansea and they will not be able to cope. The Swans needs to be disciplined along with compact and hope that they can hit the Reds on the break.
