MATCH PREVIEW: Liverpool v Swans

29th November 2015

The Swans return to Barclays Premier League action on Sunday when they face Liverpool at Anfield (4.15pm).
Garry Monk's side will be looking to build on last weekend's draw against Bournemouth where they came from 2-0 down to earn a point.
Liverpool, meanwhile, ran out 4-1 winners over Manchester City last time out and have also beaten Chelsea in recent weeks.
Under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp, the Reds have lost just once in their last six league games and qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League in midweek following victory over Bordeaux.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: "We have to defend well and if we play football we can find spaces and be dangerous for them.
"If everyone is prepared for a big fight, it will be a good game."

Swans boss Garry Monk: "We're in a moment where we're not playing at our best but trusting the process is the most important part and that is what we'll continue to do and try to improve.
"But we will come out fighting because that is what this club has been built on. The players understand that, they are working incredibly hard to put it right, and I can see that commitment."
