Liverpool v Swansea City: Will Rodgers come unstuck against his old side?

Bookmark and Share

Red-hot Liverpool bowed out of the FA Cup last weekend in controversial circumstances at Arsenal but this afternoon they have the chance to keep the pressure on the top three and keep their Premier League title hopes alive.

Brendan Rodgers will welcome some familiar faces to Anfield later when struggling Swansea City come to town. Although it will be great to meet up with his old team, the only thing in Rodgers' mind will be getting all three points.

Brendan RodgersThe Swans, who have won only two of their past 10 league outings and never won at Anfield in the league, could ease their relegation woes with victory today by moving up to 10th, but they must first stop the attacking threat of Sturridge, Suarez, Coutinho, Sterling and Gerrard.

Gary Monk's side, like Liverpool, were dumped out of the cup last weekend by Everton and this could be another poor day out on Merseyside for the Welsh team.

Liverpool have scored 20 goals in their past six games and haven't lost in the league this calendar year. It's imperative for Liverpool to keep winning, not only to keep the pressure on Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City, but to remain in front of Spurs, Everton and Man United in the battle for fourth place.

The hosts start this game as hot favourites for the win, but Swansea could frustrate the Reds as they did in their first Premier League meeting two seasons ago, leaving Merseyside with a goalless draw. 

Last season Liverpool spanked the Swans 5-0, but the visitors had one eye on the League Cup final that day. Today will be different, although many still believe the end result will stay the same.

SQF Prediction: 3-0
