Well it seems we’re meeting a tough opponent at a good time. Swansea have caused us problems in recent years but with Monk’s side struggling for form the reds will fancy their chances here.

I predict the following lineup, Allen did enough on Thursday to get a start against his former club, Klopp has hinted at this and following a few silly errors and questionable form he may well show Emre Can that he’s got competition for his place.

Benteke would suit this game more as the striker but Firmino must surely start behind him, unless maybe Lallana gets the nod in his preferred central role. Lallana will also be fighting to start on the right along with Ibe and Milner. We have some great options in attacking areas now, Jordan Henderson may even come on from the bench.

The defenders pick themselves really, I’m confident of a win here, in fact we may even score a few, although I’ll try not to get too carried away, we all know how that can go 🙂

The game is not being shown on Sky, if anyone has any streams to share please do below 😉

Sorry to say, but Lucas is suspended for 5yellow cards, so won’t be playing against Swansea.

What as happened to young Rossiter, is he still injured, as he had a good game for us on his last first team run out.

Rossiter is back in training and may play for the U21’s v United on Monday. Another option for us when he gains full match fitness.

think he will make a good player as he grows in stature and experience. Will be a good addition to to team for the Klopp machine.

No Shelvey for them as he is suspended.
Makes me feel much better as he seems to be a lightning rod that all good and bad occurs for both teams in this fixture.

Jamie ,this TIA line up need to update. Tonight imo Kloppo will play the same as he did at MCity and could line up the same team, with Allen in place of Lucas suspended, the LFC team has grown in confidence after their last 2 winning game against City and Bordeaux, they now just need to do the same job properly to give Kloppo his 1st epl home win in front of the home kops. We had seen in the Europa cup LFC was not as sublime as at city and I could understand that it need more time to get a good running team for all the games but little by little its coming, but the more important was to got the 3points need to go through the next stage . For tonight the opponent is not that we could think, many said GMonk team are struggle to got points and win games but we had seen in the past their are no less good team in epl, so we should not be overconfidence, the SWANS manager is playing his future in this game and imo their players will play for him to show their support, so we must… Read more »

Like the look of Randall another good young player who will flourish under Klopp.

Think Klopp may be losing a lttle faith in studge, don’t think he will play him till he is convinced his is fit, and more robust, even if it is only to get his head and mind in the right frame to accept little knocks etc.

I missed the first half of the game and I have no idea how well we did. Watching the second half… are we struggling?

Finally… three points collected against a very good team like Swansea. The win puts us in 6th place today. Next stop Southampton in the League Cup.

Not a very good performance but 3 points in the bag. Klopp is certainly a special manager and has been a breath of fresh air. Poor game from Benteke, Firmino. Sturridge looked very rusty, didn’t look to work very hard. Hopefully his attitude will improve. I was impressed with Can and Lallana and Ibe was bright but why didn’t he shoot when he was through on goal??!! Needs to improve his crossing too. Henderson is back and looked like he really missed playing. My major concern is rest for Clyne and Moreno and our lack of backup for them.

Haven’t seen the game just read reports & bits & bobs. By the sounds of things we didn’t set the world alight but we won & that is the most important thing. The weekends results have been very good for LFC & with the 3 points today it’s been a big plus for us. To be 6 points off top spot after our poor start to the season is very promising. Nice to see Hendo & DS get some minutes too. A semi final place up for grabs Wednesday can’t wait.

Seems like the one we miss the most, is the little magician. Hope he is back for Southampton.

For most of the game Swansea had four at the back and five across the middle meaning this was never going to be a particularly open game. I thought without Coutinho we lacked a degree of creativity, especially with Firmino having an off day. I must say though, I feel as confident when Milner steps up for a penalty as I did when Gerrard did. An adequate performance if not exactly electric.

Totally agree , for me the most disappointing thing was Benteke , he was 18 yards away from the net and he passed it to somebody, I mean he is a striker right, I am hoping that this is just one off, if he had scored that it would have taken a lot of pressure off from the team, but the first 25 mins was crazy, even though we have not reached that peak with creativity, pressing the opposition like that will dismantle plans whatever the opposition has and they will park the bus, which will result in lot of corners and a couple of free kicks like it did yesterday, if we can get a goal or two from those opportunities , it will be amazing, I am positive and I am sure we are heading the right way, I look at the bench and it is such a joy, let’s not forget Swansea was cool as Cucumber and the result we got was appropriate.

Swansea usually come to Anfield and play an open game but they were very defensive for much of the game and had obviously working hard on their organisation. I thought we did well early on but once again our final ball or final touch let us down. Once we were unable to keep up the high pressing the game got more difficult. I didn’t think it was a penalty but well done Milner for converting two pressure pens in 4 days. It’s hard to play the pressing game for 90 minutes against teams that have had a whole week to rest when you’ve only had 3 days. The return of injured players Henderson, Sturridge and Coutinho should allow Klopp to rotate more without losing quality which should help over the coming weeks. We are now just 4 points off 4th and 6 off the top so plenty of incentive over the next few weeks.
