Swansea v Liverpool Odds: Score draw looks a decent bet for Rodgers return

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers returns to the Liberty Stadium in Sunday's live lunchtime kick-off in the Premier League as he comes up against his former charges Swansea. Rodgers left Swansea for Merseyside during the summer but his departure has barely been noticed as Michael Laudrup has taken up the reins in fine fashion.

Swansea have continued to play an attractive style of football that was in evidence for much of Rodgers' time in charge but they go into this weekend's game as slight underdogs at 12/5. Liverpool are 11/10 favourites, while the draw can be backed at 5/2 with Bet 365 and there doesn't look to be much to choose between these sides.

They are both hovering in mid-table currently and Swansea go into the game on the back of a decent run of form. The Welsh side have only lost one of their last seven in all competitions, with that sole defeat coming in the form of a 1-0 loss at Manchester City, and they should be full of confidence after winning 2-1 at Newcastle last weekend.

Michu was on target for the eighth time this season as he opened the scoring at St James' Park and he is a best price 8/1 to be first goalscorer again with B365 on Sunday. The Spaniard has proven to be an inspired signing by Laudrup as the Swans continue to play an attacking style of football. That flair comes at a price though as Swansea have failed to keep a clean sheet in 13 and both teams to score is 4/6 on this weekend.

That could be worth a look for odds on backers as Liverpool have kept just one clean sheet in their last 12 away games in the league and the two teams served up an entertaining match in the League Cup a few weeks ago. The Swans won 3-1 at Anfield in the Cup and they are now unbeaten in the three Swansea v Liverpool meetings since they were promoted to the Premier League last season.

However, Swansea have won just one of their last five at home, drawing three of their six at the Liberty in the league, and the score draw at 10/3 could be the way to go as Liverpool look to extend their own decent run of form. The Reds are unbeaten in seven in the league but they have won just one of seven in all competitions and their biggest problem remains their inconsistency.

They may have lost only one of six away league games but they have only won one during that time and a draw looks a decent bet again this weekend. The one consistent factor in Liverpool's season remains Luis Suarez, who has scored 13 goals this season, and he is 9/2 favourite to score first or 3/1 to score Liverpool's first goal.
