Liverpool v Swansea Tips & Betting PreviewCarling Cup Betting Tips
League Cup holders Liverpool are heavily odds-on to maintain their trophy defence with victory over Swansea at Anfield on Wednesday.
This match will represent the first time Brendan Rodgers has faced his old team since leaving south Wales for L4 in May and he will be confident of marking the reunion with a win following the Reds’ recent upturn in form.
That improvement has seen them unlucky not to beat a high-flying Everton on Sunday following victories in the Europa League and over Reading.
However, at 4/9 Liverpool are not worth backing while at 7/1 the Swans are certainly worth a small stakes speculation.
Michael Laudrup has done a good job in his succession of Rodgers and his side equipped themselves well against
Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday, with a Carlos Tevez long-distance strike the difference between the two sides.
Both managers are likely to make wholesale changes from their league teams, which could lead to an open match so get on the over 2.5 goals line.
The Swans have progressed to the fourth round via wins against lower league opposition in the form of Barnsley and Crawley while Liverpool successfully circum-navigated West Brom.
The Reds’ fixture list is becoming extremely congested with the Europa League to contend with as well so Swansea are fancied to cause an upset.
