Confirmed: Swansea v Liverpool line-ups

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Here are the confirmed teams as Swansea host Liverpool in the Premier League.

Swansea City boss Garry Monk will want his team to make full use of their home advantage this evening, for the difficult match against Liverpool. The Swans have enough quality throughout their side to make life difficult for Brendan Rodgers’ team, but they need to start well and ensure that Liverpool find it difficult to get into the game. Swansea’s incentive this evening is that a win takes them into the top eight where they will be looking to stay for the rest of the season.

Liverpool are under a little bit of pressure because they are the last to play of the sides competing for a place in the top four. Manchester United were impressive yesterday and the Reds need to respond ahead of the game against their arch rivals this weekend. Liverpool have been in great form in recent weeks, they have momentum and they seem to have mastered the system that Rodgers has been developing. A win for Liverpool sets up the opportunity for them to overtake United when the sides meet this weekend.
