Reds Look For Win Against Swansea

Suarez scored the last time Swansea were at Anfield...
It's Swansea at Anfield on Sunday for Liverpool and the Reds will be looking to find their way back to winning ways after two defeats on the trot. The loss against Zenit followed the same suit as the West Brom game and it's a worrying prospect that Liverpool are able to crumble so easily but in contrast, when looking at the performances againt Arsenal and Man City, it's clear Liverpool can still get a result.

There are no new injury worries for Liverpool and so Brendan will have the pick of the bunch for this tie against Swansea. The Welsh side on the other hand will be without the influential Chico Flores who has ruptured his ankle ligaments (ouch!) and Neil Taylor is also still out with a broken leg.

The last time the two sides met was in November last year. The game ended in a 0-0 draw despite 9 shots on target from Liverpool. The last time Swansea were at Anfield was in October for the League Cup, the game ended badly for Liverpool who conceded 3 with only one return from Luis Suarez.

Liverpool have lost 3 of their last 6 matches in all competitions whilst Swansea have only lost 2. Swansea's last game saw them put in a confident performance against QPR scoring 4 times, they failed to score at all in their 3 matches before this though.

Stat Sandwich

  • Since Swansea were promoted Liverpool have failed to score against them in the Premier League.
  • Swansea have only won 1 of their last 6 away games in the league.
  • The Reds still haven't beaten a side above them in the table yet this season.

I think it's evident that Liverpool need to play a lot better than they have done in their last two fixtures to get anything from this game. They may have been starting games well but they aren't capitalising when they're creating all the chances. I'm hoping for a win here but I'm not so sure we'll be able to pull one off at the moment therefore I'm going to go for a 1-1.

Enjoy the match folks!
