Ghanaian worldwide, Jordan Ayew, would be a key player for Swansea City if they are to end Liverpool's 14-match unbeaten run in the English Premier League. The Swans face back-to-back fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal before a hard trip to Leicester City.

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

Mane, however, has looked back to his best in recent weeks with his recent goals against Burnley and Manchester City making in six Premier League strikes in 15 appearances this season.

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.

As for Swansea they can welcome back right-back Kyle Naughton & Mike van der Hoorn from suspension and injury respectively.

Jurgen Klopp has made it clear that Loris Karius is now his first-choice goalkeeper, despite another error last week, as the Reds seek their first clean sheet since a 5-0 win over Swansea on Boxing Day. That makes sense. We have really high-quality players, especially Adam Lallana.

Climate breakdown: Environmental threats once again top global risk survey
After a year of heatwaves, wildfires and hurricanes "extreme weather" has been seen as the single most prominent risk for 2018. Nearly 1,000 experts and decision-makers considered the likelihood and impact of 30 global risks over the next decade.

The sale of Philippe Coutinho was a disappointment for supporters, but they have picked up two great wins without the Brazilian and the impact of his departure may be less than initially anticipated. The success of the transfer window resulted into a successful campaign with the club climbing to the top of the Premier League and breaking Arsenal's records of most consecutive victories in the league.

On Monday the Times have predicted how Liverpool and Swansea will line up.

Swansea are having a very poor season, picking up just four wins and 17 points from their first 23 games this season. As much as I'd like to say we can expect more of the same tomorrow, it's over confidence that always gets you in the end, isn't it? RealSport looks at what Jurgen Klopp can do to maintain this winning streak, and make sure they look ahead of them in the table, not behind.

Emre Can anchors the midfield and wears the captain's armband, with Gini Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the centre alongside the German.

Liverpool have already been linked with a move for another goalkeeper in the summer after Mignolet said earlier this week he was considering his future at the club, saying "This situation can not last too long". That should change with the arrival of Virgil Van Dijk, but experienced midfielders and leaders Jordan Henderson and James Milner need to show their teammates how to conduct themselves in the closing stages.
