Team News

Liverpool
Swansea
  • Lucas Leiva is suspended for the home side, with Joe Allen expected to come into the XI to face his former club.
  • Philippe Coutinho is a doubt for Liverpool, though should be fit to feature here after missing out in midweek.
  • Elsewhere, Jurgen Klopp is without seven players through injury, with Daniel Sturridge sidelined with a foot problem.
  • Jonjo Shelvey is suspended for Swansea so will play no part in the meeting with his former employers.
  • Garry Monk may call on Federico Fernandez, Jack Cork, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jefferson Montero and Bafetimbi Gomis after the quintet were left out of the starting XI against Bournemouth last week.

Prediction

  • Liverpool bounced back from their 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace prior to the international break with a romping 4-1 win at Manchester City last Saturday. The Reds secured their place in the next round of the Europa League on Thursday night, so confidence is high among the players.
  • Swansea's form continues to undermine their good start to the season. The Swans have failed to win any of their last three league games, coming from behind to snatch a point at home to Bournemouth last week.
  • The Reds have won their last three home meetings with Swansea and should continue this run on Sunday.

  • LFC started the 1st half very well with some neat build-up play & attacking moves but that dominance faded as the game became more of an equal dual, but worthy of three pts though a draw would have been fairer .LFC is starting to have their injured players back and hence a complete squad .LFC under klopp is a different animal; thirsty&hungry for glory and more of zeal and zest in their play. #iamfanofLFC

  • Good to see Henderson and Sturridge back. Hopefully they're still with us for a while yet.

  • A win's a win but that was a little lucky. Draw would have been fair result but teams in bad form never seem to get that sort of fortune.

  • Rooney should feign a long-term injury and quietly fade from view if he wants to retain any dignity at all.

  • @hyperion Dude, you have posted that in every match center of a PL game today. Enough is enough, don`t you think so ? You seem to have a strong urge to tell that everybody ...

  • 2-1 like vs Bordeaux, the same odds for home win :)

  • Will Coutinho play?

  • At start of the season no one would have predicted Liverpool to trash in form Swansea, but things have worked out in very different directions for both teams since then. Luckily we have Leicester, Everton and West Ham to challenge bigger clubs. Interesting to see whether Benteke will start or not.

  • 2-0

  • let's wait and see Coutinho. Liverpool have gained confidence after huge performance. I'm sure Swansea will be humiliated at Anfield.

  • This could be over by half time,After liverpools performance last week confidence will be thru the roof and swansea performed horrible last week they were lucky to get a point there midfield looked very shaky and with liverpool pressing it will get worse,Also henderson will most likely be back and either sturridge or benteke back playing.This could be the end of monk which won't be deserved but could happen,I can see a 4-1 or 4-0 with liverpool dominating the game

  • Liverpool to win
