Swansea City vs Liverpool Preview

Despite the huge gap between the two sides, Klopp isn't taking anything for granted with the Liverpool boss warning: "I can't imagine any easy games in the Premier League and Swansea is for sure not an easy game".

Swansea City play hosts to Liverpool, in a match that has some high stakes in battles on the opposite ends of the table.

"If nobody told me how often we didn't lose, I'd have no idea about it". Though Alberto Moreno is back in training, we could see Andy Robertson keep his place after a stunning display against Manchester City. The only major absentee is right-back Nathaniel Clyne who is still out following his back surgery earlier this season.

"It will be a real challenge for us and we have to be at our best". No player who is here will say, 'OK, come on, in the middle of the season I go there or there'. But we have to do it again.

"We played Swansea a few weeks ago with a caretaker manager and I said after the game it was much more hard than the result could make you think, so we know about the specific challenge in this game".

These two sides have met on 13 occasions in the Premier League, with Liverpool winning seven times, and the other six games being split evenly between Swansea wins and draws between the two. Although it's unlikely he'd feature anyways with Carvalhal preferring the power of Wilfried Bony and the speed of Jordan Ayew up top, on-loan striker Tammy Abraham will be watching from the sidelines as he continues his recovery from an abdominal injury.

Swansea, meanwhile, sits at the bottom of the table with just 17 points.

Klopp explained that, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum to call upon, he does not feel short in the midfield department despite losing a player of Coutinho's quality and influence.

"We changed a lot of positions through the year and only with the goalkeeper it looks like we have to stick to our opinion for 20 years if we've made a decision one time!".

Mo Salah, Ragnar Klavan and Dejan Lovren are all doubts after suffering with illness during this past week.

Liverpool were in pretty patchy form at this stage last term - the antithesis of now - but if the past really does influence the future then perhaps Swansea have a glimmer of hope and tomorrow will be the day the tide starts to turn for real. "They played well, they tried to play football".

Carvalhal is quoted by Sky Sports: "It's David versus Goliath, but surprises do happen and we will be ready to prepare a surprise on Monday". The Swans are expecting Mike van der Hoorn, Renato Sanches and Angel Rangel to all return from their respective injuries and be available for this clash.
