MATCH PREVIEW: Liverpool v Swans

28th October 2014

The Swans go head-to-head with Liverpool on Tuesday as both sides look to book their place in the last eight of the Capital One Cup (8pm).
Garry Monk's side travel to Anfield on the back of Saturday's 2-0 win over Leicester - a result which ended a run of five games without a win.
Swansea famously knocked Liverpool out of the Capital One Cup at the fourth round stage two seasons ago on their way to winning the competition.
The Reds reached the fourth round after a record-breaking penalty shootout win against Middlesbrough in round three, while Swansea eased past Everton at the Liberty Stadium.

Liverpool assistant manager Colin Pascoe: "The squad is there to rotate players. Strikers and midfielders can step in - we'll wait and assess everyone, see who is fit and decide.
"Every league and cup game at Liverpool you want to win. It will be a tough game against Swansea but we want to get through."

Swans boss Garry Monk: "We go up there with nothing to lose. Liverpool will obviously be favourites but hopefully we can put a performance on that will make everyone proud.
"We have to take it (League Cup) seriously. It's a cup that we've done very well in in the past, having won it in recent history, and it's one that we'd like to do well in again."

  • Swansea have only won two of their 19 trips to Anfield in all competitions (D3 L14), but the most recent win was at this stage of the League Cup in October 2012 (the year they went on to win the competition)
  • Liverpool's third round victory over Middlesbrough featured the highest scoring penalty shootout in League Cup history (14-13)
  • The Reds have not beaten a Premier League side in the League Cup at Anfield since October 2006 (4-3 v Reading)
  • The Swans are unbeaten in four League Cup games against fellow Premier League sides (W3 D1)
