The line-ups are in ahead of tonight’s Premier League fixture with Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium…

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has made one change to the side that defeated league leaders Manchester City in a Premier League classic last weekend.

The alteration sees Virgil van Dijk make his league debut for the Reds at the expense of Dejan Lovren, who drops out completely.

Emre Can takes the captain’s armband as a result.

The hosts’ starting X1 contains Mike van der Hoorn despite concerns over a muscular issue but Renato Sanchez (hamstring) and Tammy Abraham (hip) miss out.

Elsewhere, Kyle Naughton returns from a ban at full-back and Wilfried Bony is amongst the substitutes following injury.

At the time of writing, 58% of Vital Liverpool users who’ve voted in our online poll predict victory for Klopp’s men. Of the remaining 42%, 34% foresee the Swans clinching a vital three points in their relegation battle and only 8% a draw.

The game is scheduled for a 8.00pm GMT kick-off and will be broadcast live in the UK on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League.



Swansea City: Fabianski, Naughton, Mawson, Van der Hoorn, Fernandez (c), Olsson, Fer, Clucas, Ki, Dyer, Ayew.

Subs: Nordfeldt, Bartley, Roque Mesa, Carroll, Narsingh, Bony, McBurnie.



Liverpool: Karius, Gomez, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Can (c), Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mané, Salah, Firmino.

Subs: Mignolet, Klavan, Alexander-Arnold, Milner, Lallana, Ings, Solanke.
