Liverpool back up to fourth after thrashing Swansea at Anfield

  • Jurgen Klopp was frustrated Liverpool only left the Emirates Stadium with a point

Subs: Tammy Abraham (for McBurnie, 62) 6, Sam Clucas (for Mesa, 65) 5, Renato Sanches (for Fer, 78), 5. 4-0, min. 66, Firmino. Most recently, they collapsed to let a 2-0 lead slip in a crucial game against Arsenal, ending up with a 3-3 draw instead.

"We did better in the second half".

Less than two minutes later, Salah seized upon a terrible Leroy For backpass to set up an easy tap-in For Firmino.

Oxlade-Chamberlain then put the gloss on the performance by scoring Liverpool's sixth eight minutes from time.

Just six minutes into the game, Coutinho received the ball from Mohamed Salah, took a touch and then whipped his shot round Federico Fernandez and into the back of the net.

Liverpool, whose wretched defensive record cost them the Premier League title in 2013/14 after leaking 50 goals in 38 games, have conceded 23 times in 19 games so far this season.

Swansea mounted a counter of their own as they sought to mount a quick response, but a tame Wayne Routledge header produced a straight-forward save for Mignolet.

And the midfielder will be unavailable for the Boxing Day visit of managerless Swansea, who are bottom of the table and four points adrift of safety. From here on in it was a case of how many more Liverpool would get, rather than whether they would win the game or not.

TJ Vasher catches TD in Tech's bowl loss
Facing fourth and three, the Red Raiders made a decision to go for it, but Shimonek was sacked by Senat for a loss of 10 yards. In a game widely forecast as a showcase of two breakneck-paced offenses, the teams delivered more flatness than flair.

It was the Brazilian's fifth goal against Swansea in four appearances.

- Only Manc City in 1995-96 and Derby County in 2007-08 scored fewer goals in their first 20 games of a Premier League campaign (10 each) than Swansea Cith have this season (11).

Klopp was pleased his players were able to rectify their mistakes of the first half and convert their chances more clinically after the restart.

Swansea couldn't keep Liverpool at bay for much longer, as Coutinho whipped a free kick at the back post where Firmino was unmarked and happy to finish past Fabianski on the volley.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that captain Jordan Henderson and defender Alberto Moreno will not be available for Liverpool's matches against Leicester City and Burnley.

Just after the hour though, Liverpool ended the game as a contest with two goals in a minute. But after the second goal, the confidence completely went.

Congratulations @trentaa98 and @Alex_OxChambo on your first Anfield goals!
