Liverpool back up to fourth after thrashing Swansea at Anfield

Swansea City’s Leroy Fer in action with Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

More Liverpool meet Swansea in a classic Boxing Day battle, with the league's lowest scorers travelling to face one of the most feared attacking teams in the Premier League.

A match against free-scoring Liverpool at Anfield, however, will present a somewhat more hard prospect for the South Wales club.

He said "after 55 minutes it was brilliant, before that it was work".

Salah is now the first player this season to have been involved in 20 league goals this season, with his fifth assist of the term.

There's a lot to love about Roberto Firmino. The Ghanaian global dropped to the floor but Firmino played on, fully aware that there was no foul play involved.

Keep your eyes on the ball, right? He made it look easy, but it was a technique which is the result of hours of practice as well as natural Brazilian ability.

"In the second half we were better".

The visitors were up against it from the outset. "We let them shoot, and that also happens in a football game".

Harry Kane Player of the Round after hat-trick against Burnley
Pochettino said Kane's tally was just reward for the effort he has put into his game. "Let's see what happens on Boxing Day". They are a top-class side and I think they did the basics well, they showed us a lot of respect doing that.

Liverpool away last season was the result that turned Swansea's season around under Paul Clement but the Swans were dealt an early blow in repeating last season's heroics.

But the German believes there is still plenty for the fourth-placed Reds to play for and they should not get complacent just because City are so far ahead.

Chances came quickly for Liverpool thereafter; Firmino sat down centre-back Federico Fernandez only for his cross to be blocked, before Coutinho opened the Swansea defence again and teed up Andrew Robertson for an angled shot wide. 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.

First Robertson's cross was only half-cleared, with fellow full-back Alexander-Arnold racing in to win possession and thunder in first league goal off the crossbar.

Swansea enjoyed prolonged periods of possession, but mostly failed to pick out an isolated Oliver McBurnie, making his first Premier League start.

Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool side's first thought is to defend, dismissing suggestions his players are only focused on attacking. By contrast, Liverpool have had a solid year so far, with good form against the smaller teams in the division, and keeping strong momentum in the battle for the top four.

"I just want more out of myself".
