Swansea City vs Liverpool Preview: Team news, predicted lineups, key stats, betting odds, prediction
Liverpool will be looking to continue their impressive start to the season when they take on a struggling Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.
The Reds have been one of the most dangerous sides in the league so far and it will take a herculean effort from the hosts to stop them. The Merseyside club have won their last four matches in a row and have scored an impressive 14 goals in the process. Their frontline is looking better than ever and they will look to pile more misery on Swansea.
On the other hand, Swansea City have started their season poorly and are lying just one place above the relegation zone. They have won just one game in the league so far and need to be at their best if they want to cause an upset against the Reds. The Swans defeated Liverpool 3-1 in their last encounter and will draw motivation from that.
The hosts have the luxury of almost a fully fit squad to choose from. Federico Fernandez missed the game against Manchester City last weekend with a groin problem but he is expected to return.
The only player who will miss the game is Nathan Dyer. He is still out with an ankle injury and is not expected back until November.
Lukasz Fabianski (GK), Angel Rangel, Mike van der Hoorn, Jordi Amat, Kyle Naughton, Leon Britton, Jack Cork, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Leroy Fer, Wayne Routledge, Fernando Llorente
The Reds have received a timely boost as their in-form centre-back Dejan Lovren is expected to recover in time from a viral infection. The only injury concern for them is Divock Origi who is a doubt after picking up a minor injury to his foot and will have a late fitness test.
