This weekends only Premier League fixture sees Brendon Rodgers Liverpool welcome his former side Swansea City to Anfield.

The hosts go in to the game having suffered back to back defeats, first to West Bromwich Albion in the league on Monday, then in the first leg of their Europa League last 32 tie with Zenit St. Petersburg three days later.

Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns, and could welcome back Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, who were both cup-tied midweek.

Top scorer Luis Suarez is favourite to get the first goal of the game at 4.5 (7/2), with Sturridge, who has three goals in four games for the Reds, a 5.5 (9/2) shot with most firms.

The home win is best priced with Paddy Power at 1.67 (8/13), with Swansea widely available at 6.0 (5/1). The draw is a 4.33 (10/3) chance with Bet 365.

Swansea, who are a week away from facing Bradford City in their first ever major cup final, have lost just one of their last five games; piling more misery on bottom of the table Queens Park Rangers last time out by thumping them 4-1.

Swansea are unbeaten in their last four meetings with Liverpool, though they have never won in eleven attempts at Anfield though Michael Laudrop’s men will be only to aware that the five times European Champions are the only side in the division not to beat any of the current top ten.

Defender Chio Flores misses out through injury with either Kyle Bartley or Gary Monk set to deputise.

Michu, who has sixteen goals so far this season, is 9.0 (8/1) with Paddy Power to open the scoring, though you may be more tempted to take advantage of the 26.0 (25/1) on offer from Bet Victor for in-form midfielder Jonathan De Guzman to net first.

However, with both of Liverpool’s last two games were goalless at half time, whilst Swansea boast the same statistic in three of their past four matches, you ‘re best bet could be to back the score to be 0-0 at the break at 3.70 (27/10) with Bet 365.
