With only 14 goals scored all season, Liverpool should have little to worry about in terms of a threat on their net.
After picking up just five points out of an available 39, Paul Clements tenure at the Liberty Stadium came to an end in December.
He wasn't in Klopp's match-day squad for Liverpool's emphatic 4-0 win over Arsenal in late August, with Karius once again getting the nod ahead of the Belgian, before remaining on the bench for the visits of West Brom and Leicester City in December.
Swansea produced one of the shock results of the season as Virgil van Dijk's Premier League debut for Liverpool turned into a nightmare. Mohamed Salah, Ragnar Klavan, and Dejan Lovren are all expected to recover from illnesses.
Either way, the Reds should have too much for their Welsh opponents, just as they did in the reverse fixture.
Looking to climb up to third, Liverpool will face off against a Swansea side hoping to close the gap on the drop zone.
There proved to be no way through for Liverpool, who saw Roberto Firmino hit the post with a header deep into stoppage time - Adam Lallana unable to convert the rebound - as they failed to claim a sixth straight win in all competitions for the first time under Jurgen Klopp. A clean sheet would go some way in boosting the confidence of the beleaguered Swans, and the fans will be hoping that Polish stopper Lukasz Fabianski can step up and shut out one of the most unsafe attacks in the league. We are all a bit like that and sometimes people need help to realise again the good situation.
"We played not long ago against Swansea", said Can.
Liverpool have already been linked with a move for another goalkeeper in the summer after Mignolet said earlier this week he was considering his future at the club, saying "This situation can not last too long". Still sat in 20th, Swansea are now chasing down a six-point deficit at the bottom of the table.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to score anytime and Liverpool to win is 5/1.
Van Dijk then released Salah with a delicious ball over the top, but the Egyptian could not control his hard volley.
