MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v Liverpool

1st May

Swansea City will be hoping to bounce back from consecutive defeats when they face Liverpool on Sunday (12pm).
The Swans welcome Jürgen Klopp's side to the Liberty Stadium as they look for a positive result after recent defeats against Newcastle and Leicester.
Last weekend's 4-0 loss at the King Power Stadium was Swansea's biggest of the season, and they will want to replicate the performance shown against Chelsea in their last outing on home soil in which they secured a 1-0 win.
Liverpool, meanwhile, will be hoping to bounce back from their Europa League semi-final first leg defeat against Villarreal on Thursday, while Jürgen Klopp's side have lost just once in their last ten league outings.

Swans Head Coach Francesco Guidolin: "It is an important game for us and for Liverpool. They are a great club and an important team in Europe.
"But they will be focused on every game, whether it is in the Europa League or in the Premier League.
"They have a good manager and lots of good players, so it is an important challenge for both myself and my team.

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp: "Swansea had a few problems a few months ago and changed the manager but they know they will be in the league next season.
"We will prepare for this game. I will analyse and then we will work out how to take three points from there."
