Under 3 goals
The only premiership fixture this weekend, Liverpool have experienced two bad recent results with 0-2 defeat to West Brom in the league and 0-2 defeat to Zenit in the UEFA Cup 1st leg.
Swansea have more rest for a start, no midweek games, unlike for Liverpool who had long journey back from Russia and probably only 1 clear day to prepare for this match. Worst still for Liverpool, they played a full strength X1 against the Russians.
Swansea have a great recent record against these opponents, it will be full of emotion for Rodgers having left Swansea to manage Liverpool only to see Laundrup surpass his achievements at Swansea already, particularly if he lifts the league cup next week as expected.
It is an interesting game to predict, the standard analysis would suggest that Liverpool win 3-0, 2-1, I am not sure because of the long midweek trip, Liverpool's unpredictable form and Swansea's excellent form and defensive work away from home in the league this season.
Interesting stat, average of 2 goals per game in last matches between these sides so stats wise makes sense to predict a match with under 3 goals, the under 2.5 goal line is even higher but Pinnacle still offer 1.79 for this line which for me is great value.
Swansea have only been involved in 1 match over 3 goals all season-away in the league and the one was first game of the season in a freakish 5-0 demolition of bottom club QPR. The last 12 away games read: 0-2, 0-1, 1-1, 2-1, 2-0, 0-1, 0-0, 2-1, 0-0, 0-0, 0-1.
