thumbnail Hello,

Dutchman thinks the Reds' former Eredivisie players are cut from a different cloth, but says his team will not be daunted when they travel to Anfield on Saturday

Swansea City are preparing to travel to Merseyside to face Liverpool on Saturday, and one Swans player is particularly concerned.

Dutch midfielder Kemy Agustien, who played for Willem II and AZ before moving to Swansea, has experience playing in the Netherlands against compatriot Dirk Kuyt and Uruguayan Luis Suarez, and he is wary of the physical prowess of the Liverpool duo.

"I know Dirk Kuyt and Luis Suarez from my time back home," Agustien told his club's official website.

"Kuyt doesn't play as a striker for Liverpool, but he always scores goals. He can play everywhere and always does well.

"He works so hard for the team - he plays like he has five engines.

"Suarez is another very dangerous player, he is so tricky. He is another guy who gives everything to the team - he has the capacity of six lungs with the amount of work he does.

"He looks to have settled into the Premier League with no problems, and he has really impressed me."

Newly promoted Swansea have already travelled to Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal this season, but the 25-year-old believes going to Anfield is particularly historic.

"Anfield is the type of place you want to say you have played at when you end your career," said Agustien.

"They also have good players, but we also have very good players.

"Everyone has seen that we can play our style even against the big clubs, so I think we can definitely get something from the game."

He added: "When we run out at Liverpool it's 11 men against 11 men. That is it, and anything can happen."

The Dutchman last appeared in the game against Arsenal in September, and he is chomping at the bit to return.

"I feel good now and I'm pushing myself to be ready for a place on the bench at least, if the gaffer needs me," Agustien said.

"Obviously everyone has done very well, but I want to play as soon as possible."
