Swansea v Liverpool predicted lineups: Gerrard misses out, Gomis to return

Swansea City and Liverpool meet in the Premier League at the Liberty Stadium later tonight.

To be played on Monday 16th March 2015 at 20:00. Venue: Liberty Stadium, Swansea

Odds: Swansea 10/3, Draw 5/2, Liverpool 19/20

Brendan Rodgers returns to the Liberty Stadium as his current side Liverpool face his former side Swansea City tonight.

Rodgers spent two years in charge of the Swans, taking them to the Premier League and keeping them in the top flight before moving on to Liverpool.

Now, he arrives back in South Wales with his Liverpool side chasing a fifth straight Premier League win.

The Reds should see Mamadou Sakho return in defence, whilst Steven Gerrard could play a part - though isn't expected to start, with Joe Allen likely to keep his place in midfield against his former club.

For Swansea, manager Garry Monk played under Rodgers at the Liberty Stadium, and will be looking to get one over his former boss tonight.

Striker Bafetimbi Gomis should be available after collapsing against Tottenham almost two weeks ago, whilst midfielder Jonjo Shelvey faces his former employers on a night of reunions.

Swansea will be hoping to fare better than they did in December when the sides met, with Liverpool running out 4-1 winners that night.
