Laudrup: Pressure Is On Liverpool, Not Us

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says all the pressure is on Liverpool in today's Premier League game at Anfield.

Liverpool are in much need of a win, having lost 2 games already this week. Brendan Rodgers' unrealistic hopes of a top 4 finish were given a major blow on Monday night when his side lost 2-0 at home against West Brom.

The former Swansea boss will be desperate to get back to winning ways having not won a League game in the last 3, drawing 2 and losing 1.

Laudrup believes that his side will face a completely different team to the one they beat 3-1 at Anfield in the Capital One Cup:

'They are better now than when we played the cup game,'

'They have a couple of new players, we saw they have brought in (Daniel) Sturridge to play with (Luis) Suarez, and they have had more time with the new manager and understand how he works.

'I have watched them over the last five or six games before they played West Brom and they are getting better all the time.'


Talking about pressure going into the game, Laudrup insists it's not with him team after winning their last match 4-1 at home against QPR:

'Winning against QPR and with the points we have, we can go there with no pressure at all,'

'That does not mean we give the game away, we always want to be competitive, but the pressure will be on them, they are a team who have to go into Europe and they are strong.

'Anfield is one of those grounds where you can never expect to get anything, like at Old Trafford or the Etihad Stadium. I know we have had results at some of these grounds like the Emirates and Stamford Bridge, but normally they are huge favourites.'

Lose today and fail to overturn the 2-0 deficit against Zenit on Thursday and our season is practically over. Could be the second season in the past 3/4 years where we fail to qualify for Europe too. Granted its a transitional period and there are promising signs but fundamentally that's not good enough! Click here for Vital Liverpool's LFC V SCFC preview.
