So the Premier League continues, and another set of rivalries will have to appear again in the pitch. Football betting hopefuls, Liverpool and Swansea, are slated to reunite in their first encounter in the tournament. Swansea’s Liberty Stadium will serve as the ground for any display this match may bring.

 

For five consecutive occasions (last season’s matches included), Liverpool have gone ecstatic for emerging in their Premier League matches victorious. The erstwhile seventh placers are now at the top of the League table, having won all their opening matches against Stoke City 1-0, Aton Villa 1-0, and Manchester United 1-0. This is despite the side’s successive minuses in head count, including sidelined Kolo Touré and Sebastián Coates. Luis Suárez is still ruled out of the tourney as his 10-match suspension is yet to end. Manager Brendan Rodgers, however, was intelligent enough to bring the juiciest abilities out of his crop and can gracefully continue their streak in a dignified modus.

 

Swansea City are miles behind of their opponents, having suffered back-to-back defeats in their opening campaigns for the English top-tier football. But thanks in part to their most recent win over West Bromwich 2-0, Michael Laudrup’s men are currently two spots away from the relegation trinity. As for the side’s ensemble, Neil Taylor will remain absent, which means that Davies and Hernandez will keep their role as stewards in the side. A pick among Cañas, Britton, De Guzman, and Ki Sung-Yeung will start in the midfield.

 

Prediction: Apparently, Liverpool are reluctant to put off their fire. Swansea may try to take on any goal opportunity their opponents will unleash but this match will remain under Liverpool’s command.
