The Monday Night Football fixture in the Premier League is all set to be a thriller as Swansea City entertain Liverpool at the Liberty Stadium.
This encounter sees Brendan Rodgers return to his former club of course, but all he is going to be thinking about is getting the three points for his current side and ensuring they stay at the top of the Premier League table.
What Rodgers will know is just how tough it can be to come to the Liberty and take the spoils, so that is why this is set to be a cracker as both teams are sure to go all out for the win.
When taking a look at the odds for this one, you can see that Liverpool are being tipped as the favourites to take the spoils as they are at 5/4 with William Hill.
The Reds have a 100 per cent record in the league so far and should come into this one on a high after their win over Manchester United a fortnight ago and if at their best, you would expect the visitors to take this one.
Rodgers’ side are sure to play their natural attacking game and get the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Iago Aspas on the ball as much as possible. He will also be hoping that Daniel Sturridge is fit to play and that he can build on the three goals he has scored already this season.
Liverpool are yet to concede in the league, so Swansea’s attacking duo of Wilfried Bony and Miguel Michu must be at their best.
Michael Laudrup’s men went to West Bromwich Albion last time out and were 2-0 winners, so are another team that should have plenty of confidence.
The Welsh outfit lost their only home game in the league 4-1 to Manchester United and the Dane knows that his team have to put in a much better performance on Monday evening.
Those looking to place some bets on a home win will see that Swansea are being offered at 13/5 to take the spoils and that might be some decent value from the bookmakers. The draw is at 5/2 with Betfred.
A bet on who might score the first goal of the game is going to be popular and it isn’t a surprise to see Sturridge leading the way here at 6/1 with BetVictor.
Both Michu and Bony can then be backed at 7/1 with Coral.
For us, a bet in this market is the way to go and we think that 11/1 on Steven Gerrard scoring first is the best value from the bookies. You can get these odds with bet365.
Bring on a cracker from 8pm on Monday.
