Liverpool did the business as one’s English Premier League headline pick last weekend and one is going to stick with the Reds when they visit Swansea on Saturday lunchtime.
One enjoyed watching every minute of Liverpool’s 5-1 English Premier League home win over Hull in which the Reds made light work of landing half-time/full-time double-result wagers. Liverpool’s players ate their half-time oranges after compiling a 3-0 lead and, when David Meyler hit the back of the net for Hull in the 51st minute, the Reds replied inside 60 seconds through Philippe Coutinho and then went on with the job. Some Hull fans may point to Ahmed El Mohamady’s red card as the turning point but the fact is that Liverpool led 2-0 following the conversion of the penalty kick that the Egypt midfielder gave away.
Liverpool and Swansea have had three common English Premier League opponents and the Reds have outperformed the Swans against two of those teams. Furthermore, one is willing to put a pen through Liverpool’s loss to Burnley because the Reds would have won that match 999 times out of 1,000.
Whereas Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is as safe as houses in his job, rumours abound that Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin is on the brink of being sacked. It is common knowledge that Guidolin was not Swansea’s first choice and the Swans board has a history of making bold decisions if it thinks that its club’s English Premier League status is under severe threat. Swansea is just one point above the English Premier League relegation following six rounds and its only win came at the expense of a Burnley team that is destined to struggle.
Coral are offering odds of +125 about Liverpool leading Swansea at half time and full time at the Liberty Stadium and that makes decent appeal. Liverpool has been a fast starter in most of its games this term as a result of the highly dynamic style that Klopp-coached side’s play.
Watford was disappointing in losing 0-2 at Burnley on Monday and Hornets skipper Troy Deeney did not spare the feelings of his teammates, going public with his views that he and his colleagues had been bullied by their Clarets foes.
Deeney commands universal respect among Watford’s players so one expects his rebuke to have a positive effect and that is one reason why the Hornets are an attractive proposition at odds of +140 with 888Sport and Unibet to get the better of Bournemouth at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
Another reason is one’s English Premier League collateral form analysis. Watford and Bournemouth have had a couple of common English Premier League opponents – Manchester United and West Ham – and the Hornets have performer better than the Cherries versus both the Red Devils and the Hammers.
One thinks that there is little to choose between Watford and Bournemouth but, if anything, the Hornets are a little bit better than the Cherries – this season’s English Premier League shot statistics support that position as well.
Finally, there is an argument for West Bromwich being over its true odds to get something out of its English Premier League match at Sunderland on Saturday. West Bromwich is available at odds of -161 with 888Sport and Unibet not to lose to the English Premier League’s cellar dweller.
West Bromwich and Sunderland have had three common English Premier League foes and, according to one’s collateral form analysis, the Baggies hold a 3-0-0 lead over the Black Cats. Moreover, West Bromwich has not lost any of its four English Premier League games against Sunderland since August 2014.
