While the change in manager may spark a reaction in the Swansea camp, they still possess a squad that is bereft of talent and it is difficult to see them getting anything from this daunting away trip. Liverpool can rotate but keep a strong side and they should win this at a canter.

One of Paul Clement’s first games in charge of Swansea last season was at Anfield and he would mastermind three very important points as the Swans looked to pull themselves out of the relegation zone. The win here would see them move up off the bottom of the table thanks to goals from Fernando Llorente and Gylfi Sigurdsson as they went on to upset Liverpool by winning the game 3-2.
