Brendan Rodgers’ side have made an impressive start to the new campaign, after beating Stoke, Aston Villa and Manchester United in consecutive fixtures, but the former Swansea City boss isn’t getting too carried away.
“We have to be vigilant going forward. It has been a good start but we can be better,” Rodgers on Liverpool FC official website at www.liverpoolfc.com.
“We just need to keep getting results. We need to keep the feel-good factor going and you do that by winning games.
“We have shown in all three of our games at some stage the qualities we want.
“The quality of our football has been good and that commitment and desire to win games and our resilience has been there.”
Striker Daniel Sturridge could be in line to start after missing England’s two World Cup qualifiers with a thigh problem he picked up during the Manchester United win.
However, England right-back Glen Johnson will miss the contest after he was sidelined for over a month with an ankle injury.
New signing Mamadou Sakho and Victor Moses are set to start on the bench, while Simon Mignolet aim to keep his shutouts going.
Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has an almost fully fit squad to chose from and he hopes to keep them fit as he brace for a very demanding schedule.
“We have already played seven games,” said Laudrup. “And now we have another seven before the next break.
“We have four in the league, including Liverpool and Arsenal at home, as well as Crystal Palace and Southampton away. Then we have a cup game too.
“But I think the important thing right now, in the next seven games, is the Premier League.
“The Premier League is our priority. I use the words ‘daily bread’ because it’s here that we have to survive and then do well.”
