Swansea vs Liverpool
English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 1 October, 2016,
Kick-off at 12:30 UK
Venue: Liberty Stadium, Swansea.
Swansea City will welcome Klopp’s Liverpool to Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as their search for victory continues.
Swans extended their winless and losing streak last weekend as they lost 1-3 at home to Pep Guardiola’s side. Manchester City were too hot for Swansea to handle as Aguero scored just 9 minutes into the game. Though the Swans replied immediately after 4 minutes via Llorente, but Aguero and R. Sterling srruck again in the 65th and 77th minute to put the Swans to misery.
Swansea are have now currently 17th in the league table with 4 points to their name after 6 games. Getting a win against an inform Liverpool would be a hard task, but Swans will try their possible best not to loose this one.
Liverpool have certainly made huge progress under Jurgen Klopp, they are among the teams currently in a stable form. They continued their superb form against Hull City last week, as they thrashed them 5-1 at Anfield. A. Lallana, James Milner, Sadio Mane and Philppe Coutinho were all on score sheet.
Liverpool have shown that they could be strong contenders of the premier league title, as they are in high confidence lately. They will be hoping to extend their winning streak to 5 games in all competitions in this fixture.
Swansea City: Team News
Nathan Dyer is ruled out for this game with an injured ankle. The rest if the squad are available for selection.

Dejan Lovren was unavailable last weekend due to illness, but he should be fit to play against Swansea this weekend. Mamadou Sakho’s social media rant for playing time might hunt him.
