Goals galore as Liverpool take on Swansea in Premier League
Liverpool play host to Swansea on Saturday, and the Welsh side will be eager to take their terrific home form to Anfield.
There can be no questions regarding the entertainment values of Swansea matches, which have featured 27 goals in just ten games to date.
The visitors have also scored in each of their past six outings, while their last three away games have all reaped over 2.5 goals in total, and summer signing Danny Graham has smashed four goals in his last four games.
Liverpool have found the net in each of their home games so far, and will look to the firepower of Luis Suarez to pick off Brendan Rodgers’ men.
With Steven Gerrard absent, Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson will provide midfield creativity, and Andy Carroll will be eager to follow up on his strike at West Brom last week.
For these reasons, goals appear a certainty, and it could be wise to take advantage of the 17/20 odds for the first goal to be scored in under 27 minutes.
Scoreline betting could also prove profitable on this match, and with the respective talents of each squads teamed with the offensive formations employed by each manager, the 25/1 for a 2-2 draw looks a decent call.
If you feel that the hosts will have too much class though, 28/1 for a 3-2 Liverpool win deserves interest.
With Swansea’s sole away point coming on the road at lowly Wolves, it is no surprise to see a lengthy 9/1 price attributed to the travellers here.
The Reds are unbeaten at Anfield this season, but the 2/7 for a home win could be considered too short, with draws in their past two home games fresh in the memory.
The Swans collected a point on their last away trip, and a bet on the draw at 9/2 could prove an interesting investment.
