Klopp on Sanchez: I would never sell to a rival mid-season

Klopp on Sanchez: I would never sell to a rival mid-season

They will be fancied to follow up that success when they visit bottom club Swansea in this week's Monday Night Football encounter.

If they could've picked their opponents, they wouldn't have chosen a Liverpool side who have just beaten Manchester City.

Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal has insisted that his side are more than capable of achieving a result against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, despite sitting bottom of the Premier League. The Swans face back-to-back fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal before a hard trip to Leicester City. He betters them all the time. It will also take them level on points with Chelsea, in third.

Their fixture list from 24 February reads: Brighton, West Ham, Huddersfield and Southampton, with West Brom to come after a trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Daniel Sturridge (hamstring), Danny Ward and Nathaniel Clyne (both back) are sidelined, although the latter should be available for his first game of the season next month.

If Bob Geldof is right that "mankind at its most desperate is often at its best" then Swansea supporters can adopt a sanguine demeanour, confident that Carlos Carvalhal's Premier League strugglers are destined for an upturn.

Coverage of today's Premier League game between Swansea City v Liverpool will be shown live on Sky Sports Main Event (Sky channel 401, Sky HD 435, Virgin channel 511) and Sky Sports Premier League (Sky channel 402, Sky HD 436, Virgin channel 512). Manchester City are the only team to have tasted defeat on fewer occasions. Sometimes the players give an extra 20 or 30 per cent. Jordan Ayew is doing that at the moment, he is playing well and scoring goals. Mane, 25, has been a key player since arriving at Anfield and has scored nine goals and set up a further six in his 22 appearances this season. I can not see that situation.

However, after putting two past Wolves during the week, confidence will be up at the Liberty Stadium. Produced a wonderful last-gasp block to deny Adam Lallana a tap-in after Firmino had hit the post in injury time.

The two players were close friends, but Firmino hasn't let his departure affect him and he is now stepping up to be one of the most important players in this Liverpool team.

The German coach told reporters on his plans for the funds now at his disposal: "I don't think about money".

However, the ex-Besiktas boss is unsure whether their current attacking talent is the best in the Premier League.

Swansea only have one confirmed absentee in veteran Angel Rangel.

However, the Reds have doubts over top scorer Mohamed Salah, Ragnar Klavan and Dejan Lovren who have all missed training due to sickness, per the official Liverpool website. Daniel Sturridge, Alberto Moreno and Nathaniel Clyne all remain on the injured list. "He didn't sign a new contract for us yet otherwise we would have informed you".

In the 11 games he has not started they have collected 26 points, averaging 2.2 points per game. It was feared that they would be less potent after the departure of Coutinho, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
