    • Referee Mark Halsey blows the whistle and gets us underway here on this final game of the season here at the Liberty Stadium.
    • 14.55 Match odds: Swansea (13/5), Liverpool (6/5), Draw (13/5).
    • 14.50 Liverpool are the only PL team to have lost every away game they have fallen behind in this season (nine in total).
    • 14.45 Kenny Dalglish: "We're not happy finishing below anybody in the table. We want to be finishing above everybody. Whoever is in our road, it is up to us to be better than they are and get there when we can - but it's not been too bad for us. To win a trophy after six years was a good result for us, to get to the FA Cup final was a good result, and to get into the Europa League is also a measure of success."
    • 14.40 Brendan Rodgers: “Both ourselves and Liverpool have a lot to play for and they will want to finish as high as possible and on Tuesday against Chelsea I thought they were excellent. It’s a game we want to win because we have a chance of finishing in the top ten.”
    • 14.35 Swansea have failed to score in their last five games in all competitions against Liverpool but Liverpool have failed to score on the final day in the past two seasons.
    • 14.30 Liverpool could leapfrog Merseyside neighbours Everton to seventh in the table with victory should Everton fail to beat Newcastle. Swansea are 12th after a pleasing first campaign and could jump two places to tenth on goal difference with a decisive victory. Check out the full Premier League table here.
    • 14.25 Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard missed Tuesday's win over Chelsea with a minor back problem and has not be risked again while left-back Jose Enrique also sat out that game and again misses out. Teenager Raheem Sterling is likely to get another run-out from the bench having made back-to-back league appearances as a substitute.

Subs: Jones, Jose Enrique, Coates, Kuyt, Spearing, Sterling, Bellamy.
    • 14.15 Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has no fresh injury concerns. Full-back Angel Rangel returned from a hamstring problem at Manchester United, while midfielder Leon Britton shook off a knee niggle to feature as a second-half substitute at Old Trafford.
