Wins against West Brom and Stoke in recent weeks have moved Liverpool to within touching distance of a top four spot – although they have played a game less that 5th placed Spurs – and the Reds could move up into the Champions League spots if they take maximum points at Anfield.
The Swans have so far come undone against Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City so far and have not won away from home yet this season, but with boss Brendan Rogers insisting that his side will go into the game looking to claim an upset win, an upturn in their fortunes on the road could be in the offing.
The game should be an interesting one for Craig Bellamy should he play, with the former Manchester City man spending time on loan with Cardiff last year and going up against many of his international team-mates, although he is unlikely to get the nod to start with Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez ahead of him in the pecking order.
The sight of Steven Gerrard on crutches after going down with an ankle infection will have done little to buoy their spirits given the fact that the Reds captain has been plagued with injuries of late, and the England international is certainly out of the game against Swansea as well as the England games against Sweden and Spain which follow soon after.
Jordan Henderson should keep his place in the side while Jamie Carragher’s fitness will be assed closer to the game after the centre back picked up a calf knock.
Swansea keeper Michel Vorm is likely to have a busy day in goal for the visitors although he will be pleased if his opponents continue missing the target – Liverpool have hit the woodwork more than any other side this season.
