Swansea Liverpool : Brendan Rogers to sign off with win at Liberty Stadium
Swansea City face Liverpool meet on the final day of the Premier League season this weekend as Coral make the Welsh side long odds and announce a free bets offer on this entertaining contest between two teams that will attack from the off.
Neither team has too much to play for in terms of league positions, other than finishing as high as they possibly can.
Swansea for example could climb into the top ten if they secure victory and other results go their way.
Looking a bit more at Brendan Rodgers’ men, it is fair to say that they have had a fantastic season. This home game on the final day is there chance to celebrate it, trying to secure a famous victory in the process.
Going into this weekend, Swansea sit 12th in the table, a credible nine points clear of the relegation zone. For a team that was expected to go straight back down to the Championship, they have been simply outstanding and won many supporters over the course of the season.
Their form of late hasn’t been fantastic – they have only won one of their last eight games – but they racked up enough points earlier in the season to be able to relax and enjoy this weekend.
As for Liverpool, they also have little to play for this weekend, but this is a very disappointing thing for them. After the money they have spent, they would have been aiming for a top six finish at the very least this season.
This is now impossible though and instead, they are hoping Everton drop points at home to Newcastle so that victory in Wales would see Kenny Dalglish’s men leapfrog their local rivals into 7th position.
The FA Cup final defeat will still be fresh in Liverpool’s minds too and to finish what has been a poor Premier League campaign on a high note would be very welcome indeed. Then, perhaps they can push on positively this summer and beyond.
When these two teams met earlier in the season, it ended in a 0-0 draw. This time though, with both teams able to go all out for the win, it should be a much more open contest.
