Everything points to yet another Liverpool clean sheet at Swansea

| 12.09.2013

Liverpool have started the season impeccably and travel to south Wales top of the pile after three, yet to concede a goal.

Still, despite the solidity they’ve shown in the opening exchanges, it’s deemed a question of time before the Reds step on a carelessly disregarded banana skin and go skidding uncontrollably towards the Europa League regions of the division.

If they can hang around the summit for a few more games, though, they’ll be able to call upon the Premier League’s finest footballer. The reintegration of Luis Suarez will further boost their chances of finishing in the top four this term, something that’s available to back at 5/4 with Ladbrokes.

Brendan Rodgers’ side prepare to embark on a run of very winnable matches that is likely to shape their season and Swansea are the first hurdle they must overcome.

The Welsh side have failed to bag in four of their past six Premier League outings at the Liberty Stadium, with the same number of these games ending in defeat.

These figures add value to Liverpool chalking up yet another win to nil which, if they achieve it, will be their fifth in succession in the top flight. This eventuality can be backed at 5/2.

Supplementing this is the stat that, following their stifling of Manchester United last time out, Liverpool have now kept six clean sheets in seven with Dimitar Berbatov’s 33rd minute strike at Craven Cottage the only goal they’ve given up in this period.

Furthermore, the pair’s four Premier League tussles have yielded just a solitary Swansea strike. Three clean sheets from four against this adversary adds yet more value to the generous offering that says the red Merseyside mob will enforce yet another blank on Michael Laudrup’s men.

A price of 17/10 says Simon Mignolet’s sheet will remain unblemished for the fourth consecutive game following this Welsh sojourn.
