Firmino To Fire Liverpool To A Boxing Day Victory Over Swansea

The Premier League action on Boxing Day concludes with Liverpool's clash with Swansea on Sky Sports and the Reds should be too strong at Anfield, albeit it might not be as easy as many expect...

  • Roberto Firmino has scored three goals in his last two appearances against Swansea
  • Liverpool have won five of their past six meetings with Swansea at Anfield

Jurgen Klopp's men are unbeaten on home soil this season, winning four and drawing five, but they have dropped points against the likes of Everton, Burnley and West Bromwich Albion on Merseyside and they will be wary of another slip-up when they start 1/6 favourites (Bet 365) on Tuesday evening.

The Swans have actually won two of the past three Liverpool v Swansea fixtures and it will be interesting to see if they can turnaround their fortunes after sacking Paul Clement last week...
Match Odds:

Firmino To Strike

In truth, it seems unlikely that Swansea have enough fire-power to cause an upset and their away record is dreadful - won one, drawn two and lost the last six in a row.

Despite their woes on the road, the Welsh side have only conceded eleven goals in their nine away games and this might not be the goal-fest that many are expecting. Only three of Swansea's away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals and only one has gone over 3.5 goals this season.

They are capable of keeping things tight and it is worth bearing in mind Liverpool's problems with putting the supposed 'lesser lights' away at Anfield. The Liverpool win and under 3.5 goals in the match is 13/10 with Betway and that looks like a stand-out price.

Only three of Liverpool's home league outings have gone over 2.5 goals and only one has gone over 3.5, although they do obviously have quality in attack and Roberto Firmino could be the key man.

Firmino has had a hand in four goals in three appearances against Swansea, scoring three and providing one assist, and he is 7/2 to be first goalscorer (Paddy Power) on Tuesday.
