Liverpool are reportedly set to receive major fitness boost ahead of their Premier League clash against Swansea City on Saturday.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Reds midfielder Joe Allen, who missed the FA Cup quarter-final against Blackburn Rovers with a hip strain, is on course to recover ahead of their trip to South Wales to face Brendan Rodgers' former team.

The Welsh midfielder has been a revelation in the absence of Steven Gerrard and Lucas Leiva and his impressive form has seen him start all of Liverpool's last six games until he missed the stalemate against Blackburn on Sunday.

Apart from Allen, the report claims that Gerrard should also be available for the Merseyside club's visit to the Liberty Stadium after completing his rehabilitation from a hamstring he suffered during the Reds' win over Tottenham last month.

The medical staff, however, will have to make a decision on defender Martin Skrtel, who was knocked unconscious during the early stages of the match against Blackburn.

The Slovakian was stretchered off the pitch and taken to hospital just as a precaution, but the defender has now revealed that all is well, but has thanked the medical team for not allowing him to carry on post the incident.

"Everything is alright. I was unconscious for a bit but glad it is nothing serious. I wanted to carry on but fair play to the physios, they didn't let me - that's the rules!" Skrtel said, as quoted by Liverpool ECHO.

"Off for a couple of days with the family. Thanks for all your support. YNWA," the Reds defender added.

Another defender Jose Enrique, who has not played since Liverpool's draw against Bolton in the FA Cup has also declared himself fit and revealed that he will be back with the training with the first-team on Wednesday giving the Northern Irishman plenty of options ahead of a crucial period for the club.

"Training done for today. Really happy how it was today. Wednesday back with the team," Enrique said.
