Friday night’s 3-3 draw between Arsenal and Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium was a great advert for the Premier League’s entertainment value, but not its defensive qualities. Neither side could grab the initiative in the middle and control the game, which led to both teams conceding possession and making errors that led to goals. Liverpool showed how devastating they can be going forward, but also how easy it is for them to slip up; they went from 2-0 up to 3-2 down in six minutes and had to scramble to get a point. In truth, it felt like a defeat for both sides.

Jurgen Klopp’s attention turns to Swansea on Tuesday evening. It has not been a very Merry Christmas for the Welsh club, who are routed to the bottom of the Premier League with just three wins so far this season. The club parted company with Head Coach Paul Clement last week after they lost on their last visit to Merseyside at Everton on Monday night. On paper this one looks an easy three points, but the Reds’ defensive issues make sure that is rarely ever the case. Clement was able to inspire a 3-2 win at Anfield last year, but we don’t think they can repeat that success without him.

Form

Liverpool once had The Beatles, now the city have another ‘Fab Four’. Mo Salah netted his 21st goal of the season at Arsenal, and Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino were on the scoresheet too. Sadio Mane also played and it is no coincidence the whole team looked brilliant going forward with them all on thw pitch. Klopp’s men have not lost since a defeat to Spurs in late October, and they are still well in the race to secure a Champions League spot again for next season. That said, they will struggle to do that if they do not mend their defensive issues. Klopp’s issue has been consistently picking the same players who have made the mistakes, namely Simon Mignolet and Dejan Lovren.

Failing to avoid relegation has dire consequences financially and that is why a number of teams have sacked their managers so far. Swansea became the latest on Wednesday and will hope caretaker manager Leon Britton can spark a mini revival starting at Anfield. Tammy Abraham has not scored since August and the Swans only have one win since then, too.

Team News

The Reds may be without Jordan Henderson who came off injured on Friday, meaning either Gini Wijnaldum or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could start in his place. Adam Lallana is yet to fully recover his place in the side after a long injury layoff, too.

Wilfried Bony is another who is doubtful, but for Swansea. He came off at Everton and although he has not rekindled the kind of form from his first spell at the Liberty Stadium, he still netted a crucial winner against West Brom recently and will be missed if he does not feature.
