The Reds swept aside the Welsh outfit 5-0 just under a month ago in the reverse fixture at Anfield and have scored at least twice in each of their last six Premier League away games, just one short of the club record set in 2014. "I said to them that Liverpool is a really top team, and they are very strong, but they are a Formula One [car]". That's why we achieved more moments to get close to the goal.

Carvalhal instructed the Swans to make it hard for the Reds by switching the play when the visitors pressed high. The Swans face back-to-back fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal before a hard trip to Leicester City. "They are better than they have shown in the past, and they are starting to show that".

Swansea are a huge, and potentially attractive, 10/1 to beat Liverpool.

There is no Philippe Coutinho, but players have stepped up to fill his boots and there are now key players in excellent form all around the pitch.

Liverpool now occupy fourth position, but a victory by more than a three-goal margin would see them climb above Chelsea into third.

"You can look back on a season after the season, not during". The Swans have hit the back of the net on only 14 occasions.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to finish in the Champions League places. Manchester City are the only team to have tasted defeat on fewer occasions. He has scored four goals in his last seven matches in all competitions.

And Carvalhal says he has seen enough progress to provide optimism that Swansea can escape relegation. He can be frustrating to watch at times and make poor decisions in the final third.

Fresh from losing their unbeaten league run the previous week to Liverpool, it was a worrying time for Guardiola and his side. Does he have the same free kick as Philippe Coutinho? I try to give the players that feeling and I have the sensation that they can capture the belief I am giving them.

When Klopp's men did get a shot on target they found Fabianski in fine form, the Poland worldwide leaping to his right and pushing Salah's free-kick behind on the hour.

On the other hand, Swansea have been boosted by the return of striker Wilfried Bony from a hamstring injury and the Ivorian will be an important addition, especially since fellow forward Tammy Abraham is to remain sidelined with a hip injury. Angel Rangel will be missing with a calf strain.

Mohamed Salah has recovered from a virus to line up in attack while Ragnar Klavan has shaken off a similar issue to make the bench.

The Red's first confirmed the signing of Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk for £75 million, before selling Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for nearly double that.
