Swansea on the other hand have won their last two matches and Garry Monk will be looking for a win against Liverpool as well. Monk is aware that the Reds are struggling defensively and he will be hoping to take advantage on Monday.

The Welsh club are placed eighth on the table with 28 points from 18 games and are three points ahead of 10th placed Liverpool. A win for the hosts will see them move to the ninth spot, level on points with Swansea.

What managers say

Brendan Rodgers: "Simon is a resilient character and like everyone, has taken a wee bit of flak. But to operate at this level you have to deal with that. He had a couple of edgy moments yesterday and he will recognise that, but he ended the game with a clean sheet and that will help with his confidence and that as the team."

Garry Monk: "We'll have to see about Jefferson. We won't know for the next 24 to 48 hours until we get the scan results. Hopefully it's not too serious because Jeff has been fantastic for us. Coming into a new league, he's been really good. Hopefully he won't be out for too long."
