Liverpool and Welsh international striker Craig Bellamy says he believes Swansea City will avoid relegation this season.
The former Cardiff City player also says that the Premier League is a better place with Brendan Rodgers' side in it.
The 32 year-old will be hoping to feature in today's game against the Swans at Anfield, and he has praised his opponents following their impressive start to the season in the top flight.
'The Premier League will be a better place with Swansea in it,'
'The Premier League will suit them probably more than the Championship would because of the way they play, the way they go about their football and the players they have.
For me, with the players they have and the way they play, they'll stay up. I honestly believe that.'
'A lot of people are starting to take notice of what they're doing; now one or two people in the Premier League and elsewhere are starting to realise they're a good football team,'
'But anyone who has followed Swansea and followed their progression would know the Premier League will suit them.
'I know I'm Cardiff and would I much prefer to see Cardiff doing it? Of course I would.
'But at the same time I'm Welsh and following Swansea and watching how Swansea go about it makes me proud as well.'
Bellamy also said he's delighted to see the Swans doing well, despite his obvious Cardiff roots.
'I'm delighted to see Swansea making such an impressive start to life in the Premier League,'
'I know it's a city famous for its passion for rugby but there's also great passion for football.
'They play a brand of football I enjoy and it's great they have stuck to their principles.
'They've certainly made a decent start but this clash at Anfield is a game Liverpool simply have to win.'
