Swansea City will face Southampton at Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night, as they hope not to slip into the relegation zone.
Swansea City are in the 17th spot with 18 points to their name, they are 2 points above Crystal Palace who are on the top spot of the relegation zone. The Swans had an interesting encounter in their last outing, they were able to defeat Klopp’s Liverpool at Anfield as the game ended 2-3 in their favor.
Swansea’s win over Liverpool was a nice relief and compensation for their back to back defeat in the previous games against Arsenal and Hull City. They will be praying for a win in this game to keep them floating above the relegation zone.
