Swansea v Liverpool: Over 2.5 goals the only way to go in Wales


Things have reached a point now in this country where anything involving Jurgen Klopp comes with a certified guarantee of entertainment.

If it isn’t his Liverpool side’s relentless efforts to score 10 goals every game, or his comedic glasses escapades during celebrations, then perhaps the insight he offers during interviews and guest Monday Night Football appearances appeal.

Either way, it’s becoming quite tough not to be a fan of the German, regardless of where your allegiances may lie elsewhere.

On the pitch, the Reds have given Manchester City a real run for their money in the “most-watchable” stakes.

Goals have arrived in bunches, while the propensity for defensive clangers means even when the attackers hit a rut, hijinks are never far away.

That’s why over 2.5 goals is such an easy play to make for Liverpool matches; you’ll never feel out of the game.

For the trip to south Wales to face Swansea next time out we go 8/15 that Klopp’s entertainers oblige for the fifth league game this season.

Factor in the club’s two EFL Cup outings and the Merseysiders’ strike rate for games with at least three goals this term rises to 75 per cent.

That the Swans have been less captivating but have still seen half of their six Premier League outings soar over the 2.5 line says everything about how far ahead Liverpool are.

We offer 4/9 that the Reds take the victory at the Liberty Stadium, with Francesco Guidolin’s hosts available at 13/2 and the draw a 15/4 chance.
