PREDICTION
Swansea had to make do with a point away at Newcastle last weekend but although they did not win, they will still feel more confident in their bid for survival. However, they need to make sure that momentum isn’t halted after the visit of a Liverpool side who will obviously have their tails up after being the club to claim the huge scalp of ending Manchester City’s unbeaten run. Liverpool play last out of all the Champions League chasing teams in this gameweek so the pressure will be on them to deliver maximum points, but it is a task they should be able to deal with comfortably.

MEMORABLE MEETING
May 2016 saw Swansea get the better of what is fair to say was something of an experimental Liverpool side. With the end of the season just weeks away, Jurgen Klopp was using the last handful of games to rest players with the upcoming Europa League final in mind. It was certainly a decision that backfired in South Wales as an Andre Ayew inspired performance helped Swansea win by three goals to one.
