Liverpool have commenced this season as a completely different club than last year’s. After winning their opening three games convincingly, the team is showing signs that they may be returning to their glory days from years back. Well, let’s see if they can keep it up against the bigger boys.
The Reds have already passed one of the sternest tests they will face all season by defeating Manchester United at home. However, winning at home is sometimes easier than it is on the road, especially since they still have to travel to United, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham. These are all teams that could definitely defeat them on their own ground.
Liverpool is not a team that can easily be beaten, especially if they are on the roll that they have been enjoying. However, there are times when the club begin to expose holes both in their midfield and defense. If their strikers begin to dip in form and the rest of the team do the same, this team can lose by more than two or three goals at a time.
The team is led by Brendan Rogers, who has done an absolutely sensational job in restructuring this team to play successful soccer. This is a club based in an area where the fans are absolutely in love with the team. Even though they have not won anything major since hoisting the UCL trophy in 2005, their beloved followers still wholeheartedly believe.
Today, Liverpool will visit Swansea — the team where Rogers coached before arriving at the helm last season. This is a team they can defeat on the road, but of course it will not be easy. Swansea is a team that can control possession for long periods at a time, but they struggle in front of the goal — especially against better teams such as the Reds.
Predicting this game is difficult as anything can happen, but here it is: Swansea 0-2 over Liverpool. The hosts will have chances, but the Swansea goaltender will make some saves while Daniel Sturridge and another will score for the visitors.
