Swansea City v Liverpool: Premier League match preview
A look ahead to the fixture at the Liberty Stadium
Monday 16 September 2013
Swansea’s tough start to the season continues on Monday night as they welcome Liverpool, managed by former manager Brendan Rodgers, to Wales for the final Premier League game of the weekend.
After defeats against Manchester United and Tottenham in the first two weeks of the season, Michael Laudrup’s side got their first three points away to West Brom before the international break, and will hope that they can be the first side to score against Liverpool this season.
Liverpool are the form side in the Premier League with a one hundred per cent record from three fixtures. If being at the top of the table wasn’t enough for Rodgers’ men, their last game in the league was a victory against the champions Manchester United.
Brendan Rodgers had a busy summer in the transfer window bringing in eight new signings including Victor Moses and Aly Cissokho on loan. But whilst Suarez continues to serve his 10-match ban and in-form striker Daniel Sturridge is still a doubt for the fixture on Monday night, the Liverpool manager will be looking for goals to come from elsewhere in his team.

Swansea 0 Liverpool 0, Premier League, November 2012
