Liverpool Team News & Preview
Liverpool travel to Swansea in the Premier League this weekend and the Reds will look to continue their splendid form with a win over the Welsh side.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have been unplayable lately and will look to pile further misery on Guidolin and Swansea.
Liverpool have won their last four matches in a row and have scored 14 goals in the process. Despite their poor away record against Swansea, they will be firm favourites for the three points this week.
The likes of Firmino, Mane and Coutinho are in superb form and should be able to find a way past Swansea’s fragile defence.
Liverpool will have most of their first team players fit and ready for this game. The only injury worries are the two youth players Joe Gomez and Sheyi Ojo.
Divock Origi could miss out after picking up a minor injury. Klopp confirmed that the Swansea game is perhaps too soon for the Belgian, but it is not a major injury and the player will be back soon.
Liverpool’s Predicted Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Karius; Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner; Lallana, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Mane, Firmino, Coutinho
Swansea Team News & Preview
Meanwhile, Swansea are under immense pressure after losing four of their last five matches in the Premier League.
There have been rumours that Francesco Guidolin could be sacked if Swansea fail to beat Liverpool.
However, on current form a win for Swansea seems unlikely. Despite their impressive home record against the Reds, they will struggle to cope with his free-scoring Liverpool attack.
Nathan Dyer is sidelined for two months with an ankle injury. He was joined on the sidelines by Federico Fernandez in the last match and the defender remains a doubt for the reception of Liverpool.
Swansea’s Predicted Starting Lineup (4-4-2): Fabianski; Rangel, Hoorn, Amat, Naughton; Sigurdsson, Cork, Fer, Barrow; Baston, Llorente

Swansea vs Liverpool Prediction
Liverpool are rampant right now and are arguably the best attacking team in the league on current form.
Swansea are no pushovers but their confidence is damaged right now and they are simply not solid enough to contain the likes of Mane and Firmino.
An away win seems quite likely here.
