Struggling Swansea Stun In-Form Liverpool

English Premier League Report: Swansea City v Liverpool 22 January 2018

By SL International - Jan 22, 2018 11:52 PM

English Premier League

Result: Swansea City 1-0 Liverpool

Date: 22 January 2018

Venue: Liberty Stadium

Liverpool failed to build on the impressive win over Manchester City as they lost 1-0 to relegation-threatened Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

The Reds dominated possession in the early stages of the first half but the Swans defence remained resolute to deny the visitors an early goal.

Virgil van Dijk had a chance to put Liverpool ahead after 22 minutes but he failed to direct his header on target from close range.

Seven minutes later, the Reds squandered another chance when Mohamed Salah volleyed over the crossbar with only Lukasz Fabianski to beat from 12-yards out.

Swansea barely threatened in the half, but they broke the deadlock five minutes before the break courtesy of Alfie Mawson's close range finish, 1-0.

After a subdued start to the second half, Salah nearly restored parity on the hour mark but his curling free-kick was superbly tipped over the crossbar by Fabianski.

Jurgen Klopp opted for a change in the 70th minute as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made way for Adam Lallana.

The Reds threw numbers forward in pursuit of an equalising goal, while the hosts defended with 11 men in their own half.

Liverpool went agonisingly close to leveling matters in the fourth minute of stoppage time but Roberto Firmino struck the upright with a header as Swansea held on for the win.

@Evergreenmessi.."You will never walk alone" Red...but I don't think Liverpool has improved with Mr Klopp.Rafa Banitiz would better with the squad you have in my Opinion.
