Garry Monk has revealed his old manager Brendan Rodgers has allowed Swansea to use Liverpool's training base before their FA Cup tie at Tranmere next week -- but fears the offer could be withdrawn if the Welsh club win at Anfield on Monday night.

Brendan Rodgers: Winning any trophy would be a 'step forward' for Liverpool

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers credits his side's tenacity as the driving force behind their victory over Aston Villa.

However, the club are in three cup competitions as they head into 2015, beginning their FA Cup campaign at League Two side AFC Wimbledon on Jan. 5.

They face a two-legged Capital One Cup semi-final...
