Liverpool predicted line-up for Monday evening’s clash with Swansea City…

Liverpool will be looking to make it back-to-back Premier League wins when they take on Swansea City at Anfield on Monday evening, fresh off the back of a 1-0 Boxing Day success against Burnley.

Simon Mignolet will definitely replace Brad Jones in goal, with the goalkeeper ruled out with a thigh injury. Fabio Borini is available after suspension but defenders Dejan Lovren, Glen Johnson and Jon Flanagan remain sidelined.

Here is our predicted line-up:

GK) Simon Mignolet

Looked shaky against Burnley after coming off the bench, but the clean sheet will hopefully have boosted his confidence somewhat.

RCB) Kolo Toure

Withdrawn at half-time against Burnley, but we fully respect him to return against Swansea, following a lengthy run of impressive performances.

CB) Martin Skrtel

Has looked more like his normal self in recent weeks, and should continue as the leader of Liverpool’s three-man defence. Should be tested by Wilfried Bony and co.

LCB) Mamadou Sakho

As impressed in recent weeks, despite his manager’s reluctance to play him at the start of the season. The Frenchman will hope to continue establishing himself.
