Premier League: Swansea v Liverpool match preview

A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at the Liberty Stadium

Brendan Rodgers is set to return to the city of Swansea for the first time since taking the reins at Liverpool during the off-season. The Northern Irishman is 12 Premier League games into a three-year contract at Anfield and has experienced a mixed bag of results.

However, since their defeat to fierce rivals Manchester United, Liverpool have gone on a seven-game unbeaten streak in the league.

Swansea have adapted well to life after Rodgers, with the team making a seemingly easy transition under the guidance of new manager Michael Laudrup. The Welsh outfit have picked up five points out of a possible nine in their last three Premier League games and they will be confident of a positive result on Sunday, given their record against Liverpool.
