Stan Collymore predicts Liverpool clash against Swansea
By Harvey Byrne
Stan Collymore believes Liverpool will run out emphatic victors against Swansea at Anfield in Saturday afternoon’s Premier League encounter.
The Merseyside giants are looking ahead to their match which will see them face the Swans in Sky’s 12.30pm kick off.
Their last meeting at the Liberty Stadium was a tight affair with a James Milner 84th minute penalty earning his side the three points in a 2-1 victory.
But, former Reds striker Collymore believes his old club will go one better and has tipped a 3-1 win on his personal Twitter account on Friday evening.
Liverpool 3 Swansea 1. Bournemouth 2 Watford 2. Palace 1 Everton 2. Boro 1 West Ham 1. Stoke 1 United 2.

However, a win for the Welsh side will lift the club out of the relegation spots and up to 17th place.
But, that is easier said than done and the side suffered a devastating 4-0 defeat against league giants Arsenal in their previous fixture.
Meanwhile, Liverpool have also endured a poor run of form in recent clashes with just one win, three draws and one loss from their last five encounters in all competitions.
A win for the Reds could lift them up to second place depending on results elsewhere, while a defeat could see them drop one place and down to fourth.
