Potential Liverpool lineup against Swansea City

Liverpool have flown to Wales for their Premier League clash with Swansea City and Mohamed Salah has made the trip despite being ill midweek.

Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal has compared Liverpool to a Formula 1 auto stuck in traffic following his team's shock win at the Liberty Stadium.

Carvalhal's side are bottom of the Premier League but there has been in a slight upturn in form with just one defeat in five games since the Portuguese took charge.

The Swans have only four wins so far on the season and sit at the foot of the table on 17 points, six clear of safety.

Carvalhal set his team up to frustrate attack-minded Liverpool, and the manager's tactics worked as Jurgen Klopp's men failed to break through a well-organised defence.

On the other side of the pitch, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk is being tipped to make his Premier League debut for his new club after sitting out the win over City with a slight hamstring strain. Like a Formula 1 vehicle. Though Alberto Moreno is back in training, we could see Andy Robertson keep his place after a stunning display against Manchester City. I try to give the players that feeling and I have the sensation that they can capture the belief I am giving them.

"That's why, especially in the first half, we achieved some moments that we were more near their goal".

"That's all the past and I'm not really interested". The problem they have is that everyone is watching them [through a magnifying glass] and saying 'still not good enough!'

Carvalhal instructed the Swans to make it hard for the Reds by switching the play when the visitors pressed high.

Liverpool will be flying high after ending Manchester City's 22-match unbeaten streak last week with a wild 4-3 victory at Anfield.

It looked for all the world that the Egyptian would volley home his 26th goal of an incredible season.

"They have strong points, but a team that lets in three has weak points also".

Liverpool put five past Swansea when the two sides last met but haven't necessarily dominated the Swans in their last few meetings. At the time of writing, they are four points from climbing out of the relegation zone. Having spent much of the past year in an apparent sulk over Arsenal's underachievement and the club's refusal to sell him, Sanchez was seen by some as more trouble than even his sublime skills were worth and, encouragingly for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, his players seem liberated by the approaching end of the transfer saga. "(There are) no doubts that from last season to this season (there has been) a great improvement from Anthony and we need that", Mourinho told Sky Sports.
