Liverpool fans are apprehensive on Twitter ahead of Saturday’s clash as they travel to face bogey team Swansea City.
The Merseyside giants have won just once at the Liberty Stadium in five attempts, after a deflected Jordan Henderson goal gave the Reds three points towards the end of the 2014/15 season.
However, Jurgen Klopp’s men go into the game in South Wales with five victories in six league and cup encounters and they will be hoping to extend that run of eye-catching form.
Former Borussia Dortmund manager Klopp will have one eye on the Premier League table, after high-flying rivals Everton dropped points at home to Crystal Palace on Friday night in a 1-1 draw.
Fans are wary that their side could struggle to come away with what should be three points against Francesco Guidolin’s struggling Swansea outfit, with some claiming that a win would be a huge result.
Here are a selection of their tweets:
I don't think (hope) we'll take Swansea lightly. We have 1 win in 5 at the Liberty Stadium & that came through a flukey Henderson goal. #LFC

Can sense a loss coming next weekend. Too much positivity around Liverpool atm. Complacency will rear its ugly head at the Liberty Stadium.

Liverpool go into the game after a superb performance against Premier League new boys Hull City last weekend, which saw them trounce Mike Phelan’s side 5-1.
A win could put Klopp’s side into second place behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, and continue their momentum going into the international break.
