Klopp provides fitness update on Salah ahead of Swansea clash

Liverpool were at their scintillating best against Manchester City last week

Ghanaian worldwide, Jordan Ayew, would be a key player for Swansea City if they are to end Liverpool's 14-match unbeaten run in the English Premier League.

Van Dijk has traveled and is also in line to make his second start for the Reds after missing out on the Manchester City clash with a minor hamstring clash.

Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com earlier this week: "Virgil was back yesterday and completely fine".

Reds' Captain Jordan Henderson and full-back Alberto Moreno have recovered from their respective hamstring and ankle injuries and could play some part, should Klopp require back-up tonight.

After picking up just five points out of an available 39, Paul Clements tenure at the Liberty Stadium came to an end in December.

If they don't take the three points for granted and don't take Swansea lightly based on how easily they brushed today's opponents aside in their last meeting, there should only be one result today.

"No-one would leave to join any other Premier League club during the season".

There have been loads of transfer rumours flying about Merseyside this January, but another convincing win here could prove that no more players need to be brought in.

Flu hospitalizations, deaths on the rise during brutal season
The Center for Disease Control estimates that at least 30 children died from the flu in the past few months. Of course, this number is likely higher, since not everyone who gets the flu checks in with a doctor.

Liverpool piled on the pressure in the closing stages but Can and Salah wasted stoppage-time opportunities before Firmino nearly broke Swansea hearts.

They are six points from safety heading into the game, though taking four points from their last three matches at least gives them some hope going forward.

"The way things look, we will play before the players come back. Wow!"

The sale of Philippe Coutinho was a disappointment for supporters, but they have picked up two great wins without the Brazilian and the impact of his departure may be less than initially anticipated. If this match is to be a tighter affair, many will be watching closely to see how Liverpool cope without their major creative force.

"But he hasn't played too much and I prefer that a player like that can really affect the game, even if it's only 30 minutes". Swansea have looked better at the back under Carvalhal, but it is hard to see the home side keeping Klopp's side at bay.

Ian Wright is backing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to blossom into an important asset for Liverpool FC.

The return to fitness of Van Dijk should help, although there are still question marks over goalkeeper Karius, despite Klopp having now installed him as the club's first choice. The problem they have is that everyone is watching them (through a magnifying glass) and saying 'still not good enough!
