Bet of the Day: Fantastic Firmino to find the net for Liverpool
Nick Murphy | 22 January 2018
Brazilian ace loves playing the Swans
Liverpool go into tonight’s clash with Swansea City fresh off the back of ending Manchester City’s unbeaten run last weekend.
The Reds were phenomenal at Anfield eight days ago and have won their last five games in all competitions.
One of Jurgen Klopp’s star performers in that run has been Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian scored the second against City and has five goals in his last six Premier League games.
Against Swansea, he should continue that run. The 26-year-old has bagged five goals in his last three appearances against the Swans, including a brace in the two most recent meetings between the clubs.
Reds to run riot
Liverpool are ruthless against the bottom-half of the Premier League. The Reds have hit 32 goals against teams placed 11th and below so far this season.
They dispatched Swansea 5-0 on Boxing Day and will be on a high after last weekend’s defeat of City.
The Coral News Team like the look of Liverpool to Win with a -2.0 Handicap at 11/5.
Swans to suffer early on
Swansea’s resistance against the top-six doesn’t tend to last particularly long. In their last three matches against the Champions League contenders, Carlos Carvalhal’s side have been behind within 30 minutes.
The Reds, by contrast, have been ahead at the half-hour mark in 11 of their 23 Premier League matches so far this season. It’s 7/5 for Liverpool to be winning after 30 minutes.
You can also back Liverpool to score between 21-30 minutes at 5/1.
