Omar Gaber: Salah will finish as Premier League top scorer

Swansea remain bottom of the table heading into Monday's game with in-form visitors Liverpool, who are unbeaten in 18 games and on a high after ending the unbeaten record of league leaders Manchester City. "I don't want to say "it says this about us" because every game is a new game and we have to perform".

"It's only the next game and I can't imagine any easy games in the Premier League".

At the end of the month we'll go through the results of the month's polls and vote The Liverpool Offside's player of the month and, come next May, those monthly results will help to determine your TLO player of the season for 2016-17.

Liverpool put five past Swansea when the two sides last met but haven't necessarily dominated the Swans in their last few meetings.

"Oxlade-Chamberlain was here all the time with Phil together but he can do a job".

The Portuguese replaced Paul Clement, who was dismissed after winning just three matches all season.

Klopp revealed that Loris Karius will continue in goal ahead of Simon Mignolet and the German will get the opportunity to establish himself in the position.

The Public Pulse: Nothing to celebrate about this tax bill
The tax bill is estimated to give 80 percent of taxpayers a tax cut, and represents Trump's first major legislative victory. The president said he had planned to wait until about January 7 to sign the tax-cut bill in a big public ceremony.

Klopp explained that, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum to call upon, he does not feel short in the midfield department despite losing a player of Coutinho's quality and influence.

As they seek to add to that number, Jurgen Klopp has recalled fit-again centre-back Virgil van Dijk as the Reds make just one change to the starting lineup. The Egyptian was ill midweek, as were Ragnar Klavan and Dejan Lovren, and only returned to training on Friday and there were fears he might miss the trip to Wales.

Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal: "It's David versus Goliath, but surprises do happen and we will be ready to prepare a surprise on Monday". The Welsh club are still on a hard campaign to avoid relegation, as they find themselves rock-bottom, six points adrift of a place of safety, and will be looking to add to the hope that new manager Carlos Carvalhal has bought to the side ever since his appointment.

Most people aren't convinced that either of Liverpool's two main goalkeepers are good enough for the side.

Mike Van Der Hoorn and Renato Sanches are both doubts for this weekend as they battle hamstring injuries. They also enjoyed a morale-boosting FA Cup third-round replay win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out.

The Reds will face Porto in the last 16 next month having progressed to the knockout stages unbeaten while rattling home 23 goals in six group games.
