The Reds will head into the full of confidence after an impressive start to the campaign that has seen wins over Stoke, Aston Villa and Manchester United.

Clean sheets and the goal scoring form of the Daniel Sturridge have been key to the club’s revival so far this season.

The on-song striker has scored all three of Liverpool’s goals this season and was named as the Barclays Premier League player of the month for August, with his club manager Brendan Rodgers picking up the manager award.

Sturridge, who missed both of England games during the International break, is expected to be fit to lead the line after a thigh problem.

The striker has come under fire from some England fans after missing the win over Moldova and the draw with the Ukraine however Rodgers has defended the 24 year old.

“He was obviously disappointed to miss out on the England games. He wanted to play for England and I felt sorry for him,” said Rodgers.

“The medical experts made the decision, not Daniel Sturridge.

“He left the Manchester United game (on September 1) injured and went away and the medical staff at England deemed him not quite fit enough for the first game and they were perfectly happy he was not going to play.

“He returned and there was a slight improvement but Roy (Hodgson) and his staff have to make a decision if he’s going to be available (for the second match in Ukraine) and at that stage he wasn’t.
“But by the time we play on Monday it will be nearly two weeks and for a grade one strain, experts who know better than I do say it is perfectly reasonable to be back playing in that timescale.

“But he should not be held up, if he does play on Monday, as being someone who has turned down his country because that is not the case at all.”

New signings Mamadou Sakho and Victor Moses are set to be included in the squad and could make their debuts however Glen Johnson is set to miss out with his right-back place likely to go to either Andre Wisdom or Martin Kelly.

Swansea meanwhile recovered from losing to opening two games of the season to beat West Bromwich Albion 2-0 last time out and with an almost fully fit squad to choose from manager Michael Laudrup will be hoping to build on that win.

Laudrup will once again be without defender Neil Taylor however Jonjo Shelvey is set to face his former club after overcoming a thigh problem while deadline-day signing Alvaro Vazquez could be handed the chance to make his Swansea debut in attack.
