PRE-MATCH STATS: Swansea vs Liverpool


The Swans will face an inform Liverpool side tomorrow when Brendan Rodgers returns to the Liberty Stadium.

Liverpool have gained the most points of any Premier League team so far in 2015, while Swansea will be looking for their fourth win in seven games.

Ahead of the game Garry Monk spoke about his former Manager Brendan Rodgers:

I’ve spoken to him about it and the pressure at the bigger clubs is constant but I think he handles it very well,” said Monk, who remains in regular contact with Rodgers.

Transition’s never easy, especially after a fantastic season, and just missing out on that title will have knocked the confidence of the players initially.

It takes time to get that confidence back but he’s done that and he also had quite an influx of players in the summer.

All credit to Brendan for having the bravery to change it to what players probably weren’t used to. He did it at a period where it could have been a risk but it’s paid dividends.

Striker Bafetimbi Gomis is set to feature despite fainting at White Hart Lane.
