Klopp opens up over rumours that Liverpool could buy Stoke star

Klopp opens up over rumours that Liverpool could buy Stoke star

Premier League - Follow the Football match between Swansea City and Liverpool live with Eurosport.

"Our three league games - against Watford, Tottenham and Newcastle were all very balanced - and we continue to play at that level, but the signs are positive". According to the recent reports, Liverpool officials have tried to hijack the Premier League rivals Manchester United for the Chilean's signature.

This season the former Sunderland man has once again been the go to but the last two games have seen Karius take the gloves.

Liverpool put five past Swansea when the two sides last met but haven't necessarily dominated the Swans in their last few meetings.

The 25-year-old, who has recently joined the new Major League Soccer club on a season-long loan from Swiss side Basel, expressed his respect for Liverpool winger and Egypt national team teammate Salah, saying he's "a great player and person".

"Oxlade-Chamberlain was here all the time with Phil together but he can do a job".

Although the home side have been improved since the appointment of Carlos Carvalhal, it is hard to see them picking up any points this weekend. But Klopp said Liverpool would be in no rush to replace the Brazil global, with his focus on finding the right player. But Klopp's perplexed look on the touchline said everything you needed to know about Liverpool's mixed display.

UP police busts biggest haul of demonetised currency notes in Kanpur
Officials said that the matter has been transferred to the IT department for investigating the source of those banned notes. In November a year ago , the NIA had recovered Rs 36.34 crore in demonetized money in Delhi.


"Even when I arrived they were still making those mistakes, but now they've changed and are much better in this moment".

Carvalhal will have to check on the fitness of striker Tammy Abraham, who has missed Swansea's last four games due to a hip injury.

The Red's first confirmed the signing of Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk for £75 million, before selling Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for nearly double that. Though results and performances have improved under new manager Carlos Carvalhal, they are still rooted to the bottom of the table and are three points behind West Brom who are second from bottom.

It can be assumed that the Merseysiders will score at least one goal in this match, as they tend to do in any given encounter, meaning that Swansea will need to score one or more themselves in order to earn anything from the game, which could prove hard given their poor scoring record.

Carvalhal is quoted by Sky Sports: "It's David versus Goliath, but surprises do happen and we will be ready to prepare a surprise on Monday".

Klopp's side had plenty of chances to get on the scoreboard, Sadio Mane firing wide in first-half stoppage time and Mohamed Salah seeing his free-kick tipped over magnificently by the impressive Lukasz Fabianski.

"Another thing that was very important in this game is that they have a principle that when they lose the ball or if the opponent plays inside their half, they are very strong at pressing".
