Liverpool fans nervous on Twitter as Borja Baston makes first Premier League start
By Will Butcher
Liverpool fans are apprehensive on Twitter after learning that Swansea’s new £15million signing Borja Baston will start against them.
The 24-year-old is yet to start for Swansea in the Premier League this season, but an injury to star striker Fernando Llorente has given Baston a chance as Swansea’ attacking spearhead.
The former Atletico Madrid striker signed for Swansea this summer after an impressive spell of form in Spain that saw him score 19 times in 39 appearances for loan side Eibar.
Swansea will be hoping to continue as Liverpool’s bogey team during the Premier League’s lunch time kick off on Saturday, with the Merseyside giants winning just one game out of five attempts at the Liberty Stadium.
Fans are wary of Swansea’s number 10, who will be supplemented in attack by Wayne Routledge and Icelandic star Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Not confident at all for this game mainly because of Borja Baston up front for Swansea. Yet to be fair I'm never confident… #LFC

This Borja lad making his PL debut for Swansea. Guaranteed goal right there. And he'll never score ever again. Til he comes to Anfield???? #LFC

Liverpool have made just one change to face Franesco Guidolin’s side after beating Hull City last weekend 5-1, with Dejan Lovren coming in to replace Ragnar Klavan.
A win for Liverpool could see them move to within two points of league leaders Manchester City, if other results go their way.
