Klopp To Make 9 Changes: Predicted Liverpool 4-3-3 Line-Up To Face Swansea

Joel Matip Liverpool

Liverpool will be looking to close the gap on Chelsea with a win when they take on Swansea City at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime. Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: The Reds boss is expected to make plenty of changes from the side that started the FA Cup replay at Plymouth on Wednesday night with Simon Mignolet set to come in between the sticks for Loris Karius.

Defence: Liverpool should find out tomorrow whether Joel Matip will be given clearance to play for his club during the African Cup of Nations with FIFA set to have their say on the Merseysiders dispute with the Cameroon FA. If Matip is cleared to play, I think we’ll see him start but for now we’ll assume Ragnar Klavan will keep his place.

Dejan Lovren should come back in to the side with Joe Gomez dropping out after getting another decent run out last night while Nathaniel Clyne is expected to shake off a minor rib injury to start at right-back. Trent Alexander-Arnold will feel unlucky to make way after impressing in the last two games while James Milner will replace Alberto Moreno at left-back.

Midfield: Jordan Henderson is also set to get a recall after being rested last night with youngster Kevin Stewart dropping out while Emre Can should also come back in to the midfield in place of Ovie Ejaria. Gini Wijnaldum should also get a recall after being given a breather against Plymouth.

Attack: Philippe Coutinho got a useful 65 minutes under his belt in the FA Cup win so the Brazilian international should be fit to start again on Saturday as long as he hasn’t suffered any sort of reaction.

That would allow Roberto Firmino to be restored up front with Daniel Sturridge dropping out after a frustrating night at Home Park while Adam Lallana should come in for Divock Origi in attack.

Youngster Ben Woodburn will also make way while Sadio Mane remains away with Senegal at the African Cup of Nations.

Here is how we think Liverpool will line up:

A win for Liverpool would see them close the gap on leaders Chelsea to just four points. However, it’s always difficult to predict results in the Premier League and that’s where Odinbet comes in….

    Ejaria or Ojo should be rank before Emre Can, hence they should be given more first team chance while Mane absence.

    Ejaria or Ojo is more suitable under Klopp style, i strongly believe Klopp know this long ago,

    Hope Ejaria or Ojo play this weekend against Swansea.
    Front Three : Coutinho-Firmino-Lallana Mid Three : Ejaria/Ojo -Henderson-Wijnaldum

      Fully agree with you Abanco, well say. Emre Can has given enough time to prove , hence Ejaria or Ojo should be given more chance to gel with the first X1 , I strongly believe one of them will give Wijnaldum a good challenge once Mane is back.
