Mohamed Salah's new role for Liverpool vs Swansea

Share

The Welsh club are still on a hard campaign to avoid relegation, as they find themselves rock-bottom, six points adrift of a place of safety, and will be looking to add to the hope that new manager Carlos Carvalhal has bought to the side ever since his appointment.

It can be assumed that the Merseysiders will score at least one goal in this match, as they tend to do in any given encounter, meaning that Swansea will need to score one or more themselves in order to earn anything from the game, which could prove hard given their poor scoring record.

"And you go through any champions, World Cup, Premier League, European Championships, European Cups, tell me a team that has won anything without a good, in-form goalkeeper?" Like a Formula 1 vehicle.

"We played Swansea a few weeks ago with a caretaker manager and I said after the game it was much more hard than the result could make you think, so we know about the specific challenge in this game".

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

But Carvalhal has overseen a marked improvement since succeeding Paul Clement last month, with Swansea losing only one of his five games in charge.

"If nobody told me how often we didn't lose, I'd have no idea about it".

Liverpool soon settled into their passing routine and when Van Dijk hoisted the ball forward in the eighth minute Sadio Mane was just unable to gain control on the edge of the six-yard box under pressure from Lukasz Fabianski.

"They are bottom of the table but they are in a good way".

"That's all the past and I'm not really interested". At that point, it looked like only a matter of time before Liverpool took the lead, but Swansea grew into the game.

Whilst the loss of Phillipe Coutinho to Barcelona has done little to dampen team morale as Klopp's side played their best football of the season in the frantic 4-3 win over City. We did these mistakes when we played in Liverpool, but today my players were ready for this.

A win here will put even more pressure on Manchester United, who are now three points above Klopp's team. "They are better than they have shown in the past, and they are starting to show that". OK, two of them were in the cup, but we have two wins, two draws and one defeat which was not a normal defeat. 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.
