Swansea are waiting on striker Tammy Abraham, who has missed four games with a hip injury. The return of Wilfried Bony from a hamstring problem is a boost, while Mike van der Hoorn (muscle injury), Renato Sanches (hamstring) and Angel Rangel (calf) should all be available.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan are expected to recover from illness. Virgil van Dijk returns after a tight hamstring meant he missed the win over Manchester City. Jordan Henderson (hamstring) and Alberto Moreno (ankle) are back in training but not likely to be ready to return.
