Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers and indeed one of his major signings Joe Allen, head back to their old stamping ground this weekend as the Reds visit Swansea’s Liberty Stadium and BetVictor make them 23/20 favourites to secure a victory on their return.
However, that’s looks a touch skinny given the quality of their opponents, who are not only strong at home, they also come into the clash in buoyant mood following a 2-1 success at Newcastle last time out.
Some punters might fancy the Swans then, at 5/2 (Paddy Power), although as Liverpool remain tough to beat, Stan James’ 5/2 chalked against a stalemate is arguably the stand out wager in South Wales, where William Hill quote a 1-1 scoreline at 13/2.
Elsewhere, Stan James quote odds of 4/6 for both teams to score and it’s hard not to feel that Luis Suarez needs to find the net if the Reds are to keep up their side of that bargain. The Uruguayan is a 6/4 chance at Boylesports to add to his tally at some stage.
