Still sat in 20th, Swansea are now chasing down a six-point deficit at the bottom of the table.

With Europe and the FA Cup to deal with, Jurgen Klopp will have to rotate his side.

One of the main factors is the superb form of Roberto Firmino, who is even receiving comparisons to a goal-scoring great like Robbie Fowler recently. Losing Coutinho makes his selection easier, but there is still a debate as to who makes up the Liverpool midfield.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to score anytime and Liverpool to win is 5/1.

"There is nothing good about going out of the Carabao Cup, other than you don't have to play two games at a time when everybody is pretty much on the edge".

"I don't have a contract with any of them saying they will never leave".

For the Swans, former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal is the man entrusted to guide Swansea to Premier League safety.

In fact, Liverpool may well find themselves outside of the top four before kick-off on Monday.

Kyle Naughton, who just served a three-match ban for violent conduct, and fellow defender Mike van der Hoorn, who was nursing a hamstring problem, will be both available tomorrow night and are expected to come right back in to the starting eleven. If this match is to be a tighter affair, many will be watching closely to see how Liverpool cope without their major creative force.

After missing out on Leon Goretzka to Bayern Munich, Riyad Mahrez and Julian Brandt are the two names that have been linked with a move to Anfield.

Forward Mo Salah has recovered from illness, but captain Jordan Henderson is unlikely to feature.

"I don't think you can look at our [previous] game against Swansea, it will be a different game". Having Van Dijk in front of him could help.

Salah, Firmino and Mane must remember their defensive responsibilities, and those arriving from the bench must not be overeager and dive into challenges.

Swansea produced one of the shock results of the season as Virgil van Dijk's Premier League debut for Liverpool turned into a nightmare.

When Klopp's men did get a shot on target they found Fabianski in fine form, the Poland worldwide leaping to his right and pushing Salah's free-kick behind on the hour. The Welsh club are still on a hard campaign to avoid relegation, as they find themselves rock-bottom, six points adrift of a place of safety, and will be looking to add to the hope that new manager Carlos Carvalhal has bought to the side ever since his appointment.

Prior to being dropped for the recent visit of Manchester City, Mignolet featured in 19 of the Reds' opening 22 league fixtures.
