Liverpool, who are now on an 18-game unbeaten run in all competitions, head to south Wales looking for a sixth consecutive win having inflicted a first league defeat on Manchester City last week.

"Given Liverpool's strength in attack and weaknesses at the back, it looks like it has been a great trade for them".

According to Manchester Evening News, Jurgen said: "No Liverpool player of this squad would leave - and not just because we say it but due to their commitment to the club".

Former midfielder Jamie Redknapp has suggested that Liverpool required a new centre-back more so than they needed to keep Philippe Coutinho at Anfield.

The Liverpool trio are in sensational form and it will take all that the Swans can muster to stop them especially seeing how all three scored in the same league game for the Merseysiders for the third time this season against City.

"At Liverpool, I started the season very well, but once I had an offer from Dortmund in the middle of the season, I just couldn't resist the prospect of working with Jurgen Klopp again, so I made a decision to leave".

Speaking of fit players, Klopp spoke of an illness which is affecting the squad, including players such as Dejan Lovren, Ragnar Klavan, and Mohamed Salah. They are improving, much better results, they are doing well.

When preparing for this game Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said his side face a tough test, despite their 5-0 win at Anfield against the South Wales side on Boxing Day. We have a few problems with players feeling ill or unwell.

Swansea are normally boring at home and in five of their last six home games there have been fewer than two-and-a-half goals scored. According to the recent reports, Liverpool officials have tried to hijack the Premier League rivals Manchester United for the Chilean's signature.

"We played Swansea a few weeks ago with a caretaker manager and I said after the game it was much more hard than the result could make you think, so we know about the specific challenge in this game".

He will be accompanied by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is putting in some match-winning performances recently.

There proved to be no way through for Liverpool, who saw Roberto Firmino hit the post with a header deep into stoppage time - Adam Lallana unable to convert the rebound - as they failed to claim a sixth straight win in all competitions for the first time under Jurgen Klopp.
