Stan Collymore has predicted that Liverpool will comfortably beat Swansea in Saturday afternoon’s Premier League showdown.

The Reds will travel to the Liberty Stadium for the clash which see’s Jurgen Klopp’s high flyers take on Francesco Guidolin’s side languishing in 17th place.

Former Liverpool player and now broadcaster has predicted a comfortable victory for his old team in a 3-1 win.

Liverpool finished in eighth place last season, ensuring that the famous club wouldn’t have the distraction of European football in the new campaign.

This seems to have benefited the Reds, who are currently placed in fifth in the league with 13 points from their first six fixtures.

Liverpool scored an impressive five goals in their victory over Hull last weekend and they have been in good form in front of goal with 24 goals in eight encounters in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Swansea suffered a 3-1 defeat in their last fixture against Manchester City, failing to win their last six Premier League matches.

However, the last time the two sides met in May the Swans ran out 3-1 victors thanks to a Andre Ayew double and goal from Jack Cork cancelling out a Christian Benteke strike.

In other Liverpool news, fans took to Twitter to congratulate former striker Christian Benteke after he scored against Everton on Friday.
