Liverpool Team News & Preview
Liverpool host Swansea in the Premier League this weekend and the Reds will be hoping to get back into the title race with a win at home.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have dropped to third after failing to win against Manchester United in their last league outing.
Liverpool have done very well against Swansea over the last few seasons and will be looking to extend that run here. The Reds have won five of their last six games against the Welsh side.
Swansea are going through a crisis right now and this should be a routine win for the home side.
Danny Ings is the only long term injury at the moment. Sadio Mane is on international duty and Matip is still waiting on his international clearance before he can return to action for Liverpool. Clyne missed the last two matches with a rib injury, but the England international is expected to be fit for this one.
Predicted Liverpool Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Mignolet; Clyne, Lovren, Klavan, Milner; Emre Can, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Coutinho, Firmino, Lallana
Swansea Team News & Preview
Swansea are at the bottom of the table right now and have lost five of their last six Premier League outings.
The sackings of Monk and Bradley have failed to transform their fortunes as well and the Welsh outfit will need a strong second half to beat the drop this season.
Swansea will be dreading their trip to Anfield this weekend. They have conceded 16 goals in their last 5 visits to Anfield and this weekend’s game is a massive challenge for them.
Taylor, Barrow, Montero and new signing Narsingh are all injured at the moment.
Predicted Swansea Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Kingsley; Cork, Ki; Routledge, Sigurdsson, Dyer; Llorente
