Liverpool v Swansea preview

Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns to deal with from their FA Cup exit at the hands of Arsenal last week.

Brendan Rodgers had named an unchanged side for four games in a row prior to the Arsenal game with Daniel Agger and Joe Allen both coming into the starting line-up.

Jordan Henderson, who started on the bench against Arsenal, is likely to return in midfield, while Agger and Kolo Toure will battle it out to partner Martin Skrtel in central defence.

Glen Johnson is close to a return after recovering from a knee injury, but Lucas Leiva (knee ligaments), Jose Enrique (knee) and Mamadou Sakho (hamstring) remain on the sidelines.

Swansea appear to have emerged injury-free from their Europa League encounter against Napoli as they prepare to face Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Midfielder Jonjo Shelvey showed no ill-effects from his recent hamstring strain after featuring as a second-half substitute in the 0-0 draw, but a return for star striker Michu appears unlikely.

It had been hoped the Spaniard could play some part in the Napoli clash, but he was still suffering from soreness and not considered.
