PREVIEW: Liverpool v Swansea City

21st January 2017
Swansea City travel to Liverpool this afternoon aiming for a first Premier League win at Anfield.
Paul Clement's side make the trip to Merseyside on the back of a 4-0 defeat to Arsenal and in desperate need of a vital three points.
But they will be bolstered by three new signings following the arrivals of Tom Carroll, Martin Olsson and Luciano Narsingh this week.
Liverpool, meanwhile, will be aiming to close the gap on league leaders Chelsea and continue their impressive form at home. 
Jurgen Klopp's side are unbeaten in the league at Anfield for over a year, with their last defeat coming against Manchester United in January 2016.

New signings Martin Olsson and Tom Carroll are in contention to make their first appearances for the Swans signing penning deals with the club on Tuesday.
Fellow new boy Luciano Narsingh is not expected to be ready in time for the fixture against Jurgen Klopp's side as he continues his recovery from a calf strain.
Jefferson Montero (hamstring) and Neil Taylor (fractured cheekbone) remain sidelined due to injury.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are likely to hand star man Philippe Coutinho his first start since November following his injury layoff.
The Reds will be without Sadio Mane, who is representing Senegal at the African Cup of Nations.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: "For both teams this game is very important. It's only finals now. Swansea playing to stay in the league. Really intense.
"Let's have an outstanding atmosphere and play Liverpool football. We should have enough proof that it's easier to enjoy football with a wonderful atmosphere."

Swans head coach Paul Clement: "This may be an even more difficult game (than Arsenal) because we are away from home against title contenders who play good football and defend with a lot of energy.
"I have come across Jurgen Klopp when I was at Real Madrid and we played Dortmund in the Champions League quarter-final. We won 3-0 at home and then lost 2-0 away. 
"He has a lot of charisma and a lot of energy. People I know who have worked with him say he is excellent with the players. He gets every bit out of them."
