Van Dijk to make debut, Karius starts

Van Dijk to make debut, Karius starts

After last week's rollercoaster of a game against Manchester City, Liverpool return to action in the Premier League with a Monday night trip to Swansea.

Jurgen Klopp is expected to make some changes to his side, with a number of players missing out on the City victory. The other two occasions were Crystal Palace against Chelsea this season, and Swansea at Liverpool in 2016-17. One player unlikely to feature will be club captain Jordan Henderson who is coming back from a hamstring injury.

- Alfie Mawson is only the second Swansea player to score a few times in the Premier League at the Liberty Stadium this season, after Tammy Abraham (3).

The Reds are desperate to find a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who recently joined Barcelona.

He wasn't in Klopp's match-day squad for Liverpool's emphatic 4-0 win over Arsenal in late August, with Karius once again getting the nod ahead of the Belgian, before remaining on the bench for the visits of West Brom and Leicester City in December. Loris Karius wears it on the back of his shirt but that hasn't stopped Simon Mignolet being the go to man between the sticks on most occasions.

Liverpool are on a five-game winning streak, which began with a resounding 5-0 showing at home to Swansea themselves, but things will be a little different for the bottom side in the upcoming fixture.

"We had to play football and we had plenty of opportunities after the restart, but in the end it wasn't good enough".

Swansea are having a very poor season, picking up just four wins and 17 points from their first 23 games this season.

Liverpool have scored at least twice in each of their last six Premier League away matches, one short of their record of seven in the competition, between February and May 2014. "Let them play in a way they don't like". Both would put pressure on the attacking trio of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane and allow Klopp to rest one of his front three from time to time.

"But he hasn't played too much and I prefer that a player like that can really affect the game, even if it's only 30 minutes". How can they deliver always at a good level?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to score anytime and Liverpool to win is 5/1. Whilst the Brazilian attacker had been on fine goalscoring form for the Reds, scoring 10 times in his last 11 starts for Liverpool.

Van Dijk went close with a header before turning creator with a chipped pass in behind for Salah, who lashed a left-footed volley high and off target as it dropped over his shoulder.
