Rampant Liverpool Put Five Past Swansea

English Premier League Report: Liverpool v Swansea City 26 December 2017

By SL International - Dec 26, 2017 09:27 PM

English Premier League

Result: Liverpool 5-0 Swansea City

Date: 26 December 2017

Venue: Anfield

Liverpool compounded Swansea City's woes with a 5-0 Boxing Day drubbing of the Welsh side in a Premier League clash at Anfield.

The Reds asserted their dominance early on and Philippe Coutinho broke the deadlock with a stunner from outside the box in the sixth minute. After receiving the ball from Mohamed Salah, he controlled it before beating Lukasz Fabianski with a deadly strike.

Swansea slowly found their feet as the first half progressed and began to see plenty more of the ball. However, they nearly shot themselves in the foot on the stroke of half-time.

Roque Mesa gave possession away cheaply in a dangerous area and Salah found Roberto Firmino, who fired wide of the target with a shot that could have all but killed off the game, given Swansea’s lack of firepower up front.

This was not the first time Leon Britton’s men were their own worst enemies, as Liverpool’s opener had been enabled by Jordan Ayew losing the ball cheaply in midfield.

Liverpool started the second half off as they did the first and Firmino doubled their lead in the 52nd minute. The Brazilian steered the ball home after meeting a fine delivery from a free-kick by Coutinho, his compatriot.

Trent Alexander-Arnold bagged a well-deserved goal in the 65th minute as he raced onto the ball following a clearing header off an Andrew Robertson cross and thumped it into the back of the net.

Straight after the restart, Liverpool went back on the attack. Salah surged forward and played a cut-back to Firmino, who stroked home their fourth goal.

With eight minutes plus stoppage time left, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain capitalised on Swansea’s failure to clear the ball while it was pinging around the box. He rifled home Liverpool’s fifth goal, adding insult to injury.

Swansea looked completely deflated towards the end and Liverpool could easily have had more goals. The Reds moved back to fourth after falling behind Tottenham earlier in the day, while their visitors remained rooted to the bottom of the log.

They may prove me wrong, but they are just not consistent enough to even come close to the Mighty City
