Liverpool have 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 their Europa League trip to Russia on Thursday night.

Swansea also have 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.

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Liverpool are without a win in four games in all competitions, but have won five of their last seven home games in the league.
