Liverpool are still buzzing from their Sunday win over high-flying Manchester City that ended the Citizens domestic unbeaten run and helped the Reds to climb up to the 3rd spot of the league table. They will now visit Liberty Stadium on Monday night to contest bottom-placed Swansea City whom they already defeated 5-0 at Anfield last month.
The Swans, however, have improved lately since Carlos Carvalhal’s appointment as their new gaffer replacing Paul Clement and their only defeat came against mighty Tottenham Hotspur since 5-0 thrashing against the Monday night opponents under caretaker manager Leon Britton. They have to react quickly now in order to stay up in the league and will be desperate for a revenge to end Liverpool’s 18-game unbeaten run under Jurgen Klopp.
Swansea City vs Liverpool Injuries And Suspensions:
The Swans have a few major doubts for Monday’s clash as striker Tammy Abraham is uncertain with a groin strain, Renato Sanches with a thigh injury, Mike van der Hoorn due to a muscle strain and veteran Rangel Angel is yet to be fully fit for Liverpool outing.
Liverpool have significant boost as skipper Jordan Henderson, left-back Alberto Moreno, centre-back Virgil Van Dijk and striker Daniel Sturridge have returned in full training following their injury absence and are in contention for the Liberty trip. The only major absentee is right-back Nathaniel Clyne who is still out following his back surgery earlier this season.
Swansea City vs Liverpool Predicted Line-ups:
Subs: Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Ki Sung-Yeung, Wayne Routledge, Kyle Bartley, Sam Clucas, Nathan Dyer, Oliver McBurnie.
Subs: Simon Mignolet, Joe Gomez, Adam Lallana, Ragnar Klavan, Dejan Lovren, Jordan Henderson, Danny Ings.
Swansea City vs Liverpool Last Meeting:
Their last Premier League meeting at Liberty Stadium ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Swans despite having an early lead via Leroy Fer. It was ruled out by Roberto Firmino in the second half and James Milner’s spot-kick late in the game secured three crucial points for Liverpool.
Swansea City vs Liverpool Key Players:
Swansea have been pretty poor this season but the presence of Jordan Ayew and Wilfried Bony might trouble Liverpool’s vulnerable back-line. However, all eyes will be on the Reds centre-back Virgil Van Dijk who is set for his first Premier League start after FA Cup heroics against Everton. The hosts, on the other hand, will find it hard to contain the attacking third of Liverpool consisting Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino. The form of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has also relieved Klopp following his majestic display against Manchester City.
