Liverpool has very few new concerns going into this game. Daniel Sturridge remains sidelined with a thigh injury, although he could make the bench.
Other than that, manager Brendan Rodgers has no new worries, although he may rotate his squad given its UEFA Europa League trip to Russia on Thursday.
Swansea also has few injury concerns going into the match at Anfield. Midfielder Leon Britton is a doubt for this game with an ankle injury, although he may make the bench, and Chico Flores (ankle) is a long-term injury problem and may not be available until next month.
