Swansea City plays at home this Sunday afternoon against Liverpool. Swansea City has been good at home this year, but is an underdog on its home turf. Liverpool is in seventh place and is still being lined as if it’s one of the best teams in the league. The Swans need three points to ensure safety for next season in the Premier League. Liverpool will need three in order to have any sort of shot of claiming a spot in European soccer next season. The matchup between Swansea City and Liverpool will take place on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 7:00 a.m. ET at Liberty Stadium. The soccer game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network.
Liverpool did pick up big wins against Bournemouth and Everton in recent weeks, and a 2-2 draw against Newcastle. Liverpool has a lot of injuries this year. Forward Christian Benteke is likely out for the rest of the year from an injury he suffered playing for the Belgian national team. Central misfielder Emre Can is out for this campaign, also. Forward Danny Ings and midfielder Jordan Henderson are both out with injuries, also.
Swansea really hasn’t played inspired ball of late. The Swans have no major injuries but has been beaten by Newcastle and Sunderland in consecutive matches by a combined score of 7-0. The Swans are going through new ownership and a new coaching staff set to come in for next year. The team is going to be rebuilt so there isn’t a lot for these players to play for. Best Sports Site Blog is concerned that both of these teams will lack of motivation. Liverpool has its sights set on greater goals, and Swansea is more or less just playing this season out. This matchup could look like a organized friendly fixture more than a competitive duel in the Premier League. We’re not sold that the Reds will be able to finish this game off against the home field Swansea City. This match between the Reds and Swans could end up being a draw.
