SWA vs LIV: If Liverpool win the game at the Liberty Stadium with a goal difference of a positive 4, they’ll move to the 3rd position on the league table. After an emphatic victory over the league leaders Manchester City, the Reds will fancy their chances of overhauling the Swans by a huge margin. They’ve been unbeaten in their last 5 Premier League games; winning 4 and drawing one point against Arsenal.
Swansea City haven’t had a constant manager since Liverpool last went there in December 2016. The manager then was Francesco Guidolin. Since then, in the last 54 games Swansea City have changed 5 managers. Bob Bradley for 85 days, Alan Curtis for 7 days, Paul Clement for a year and 15 days, Leon Britton for 7 days and their current manager Carlos Carvalhal.
The Swans have been battling the relegation zone tirelessly and are 6 points away from the safety zone. At the Liberty Stadium, Liverpool have scored only 6 goals, the rest(21 more) have been scored at the Anfield. Can they draw 3 points off this fixture? The odds definitely don’t favour them but as mercurial as the Premier League is, a relegation fighting zone can easily upset a team from the “big six”.
Recent Meeting: Liverpool won 5-0 at the Anfield.
- Out of the last 15 goals scored by Liverpool in this fixture, 14 have been scored in the second half(93%).
- This will be Liverpool’s first away league visit to a side starting that day bottom of the Premier League. The last team being Aston Villa in December 2016. Liverpool won that fixture 6-0.
- Mo Salah has scored 18 goals from 44 shots on target in the Premier League this season. Swansea, by contrast, have scored just 14 goals as a team from 52 shots on target.
