Liverpool vs. Swansea City: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool entertain Swansea City in Saturday’s early Premier League fixture looking to get back on track after two consecutive draws.

They conceded late on at Old Trafford last weekend, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic earning Manchester United a share of the spoils.

Lucas Leiva’s first goal in seven years was the difference as they eliminated Plymouth Argyle in their Third Round FA Cup replay during the week.

Swansea City were thrashed 4-0 at home by Arsenal last weekend and remain bottom of the Premier League.

Despite starting well, they capitulated after Olivier Giroud opened the scoring before half-time.
