Premier League cheat sheet: Swansea v Liverpool

Sep 15, 2013 |
The fourth week of Premier League fixtures concludes with Liverpool traveling to face Swansea Monday. Liverpool gaffer Brendan Rodgers makes his return to face the club he took to the Premier League.

We talk to Aron Black at Bet365 to find where action is.

Swansea v Liverpool (+250, +240, +125)

Why bet Swansea: The Swans will be looking for a positive result with Liverpool in Wales for this matchup. Even the home draw will suffice for coach Michael Laudrup. In their two previous trips to face the Welsh club, Liverpool were not able to score a goal. Swansea is currently a reasonably healthy side and are coming off a very nice 2-0 victory away to West Brom.

Key players out/doubtful: Neil Taylor, Jonjo Shelvey, Nathan Dyer

Why bet Liverpool: The Reds have collected nine points from three games and have done so as star goalscorer Luis Suárez serves his suspension for trying to eat Branislav Ivanovic's arm. Daniel Sturridge has been in form collecting three goals to open the season and holding midfielders Steven Gerrard and Lucas Leiva have been excellent in front of the back four.

Key players out/doubtful:
Sebastián Coates, Aly Cissokho, Glen Johnson, Luis Suárez

2012-13 fixture result: Swansea 0, Liverpool 0

Key betting note: If Liverpool win, it will be the first time the club has opened a Premier League campaign with four-straight victories.

Where the action is:
"A tough game to choose a side for punters in this one. Inevitably, Liverpool is and will see action, but the draw and Swansea are also seeing plays. The draw is looking the most likely, but Liverpool may just have enough to scrape away a close win."
