Liverpool and Manchester City served up the game of the season when they met at Anfield in game week 23 with Liverpool running riot in front of goal despite selling key man Philip Courtinho to Barcelona the previous week. This Monday, Liverpool travel to struggling Swansea City in the Premier League where most fans are expecting the goals to continue flowing.
Swansea vs Liverpool
The last time the two sides met was at Anfield on December 26th where Liverpool were comfortable 5-0 winners. In that match The Reds were only 1-0up at half time so 2.60 for there to be a single goal herein the 1st Half Exact Goals market may prove to be a value bet.There are plenty of players in the frame to score that first goal. At the top of the market is Mohamed Salah who is at 3.80 to add to his 18 goals already this season.
Another highlight from the 1st Goalscorer betting market is Sadio Mane at 4.80. The Senegalese attacker has netted in his previous two matches for Liverpool. If a bigger price is what you are looking for then returning defender Virgil van Dijkis a good bet at 15.00 having scored the winning goal in his Man of the match display against Everton in the FA Cup.
If you think Swansea’s chances have improved under short term manager Carlos Carvalhal then perhaps The Swans to win 1-0 is the bet for you at 22.00 in the Correct Score market or if you fancy dipping into an unusual market then how about Swansea to pick up exactly three bookings like they did in their previous match away at Newcastle.
Manchester City vs Newcastle
How will Manchester City respond to losing their first Premier League game of the season? Manchester City are 1.14 to get back to winning ways when they host Newcastle in match week 24. Following their only previous defeat this season to Shakhtar Donetskin the Champions League, The Citizens went to local rival Manchester United and won 2-1 so lots of fans will see this game as an opportunity for them to show why they are 12 points clear in the Premier League table.
The last time these two teams played at Etihad Stadium was two seasons ago where Manchester City won convincingly 6-1 but they did have to come from behind to win that match. This season Newcastle have taken the lead away from home at both Manchester United and Chelsea. Both times Dwight Gayle was the scorer so at 16.00 in the 1st Goalscorer market, Gayle is good value to continue his goalscoring against the Premier Leagues big teams.
With Manchester City undoubtedly keen to prove their quality, Exact Goal 6+ at 4.30 could be a very tempting bet and can Bernardo Silva score for the third Premier League game in a row? He is 1.93 in our Anytime Goalscorer market. This game is featured in our Saturday Treble Boost promotion, learn more here.
