Klopp on Swansea victory and return of Lallana

27 December 2017

We saw the same type of football in North London on Friday, but unlike Arsenal, caretaker manager Leon Britton couldn't cox his side in to taking advantage when they gained some semblance of control after Liverpool's predictably strong start. The Swans have registered just three wins so-far this season. The Ghanaian global dropped to the floor but Firmino played on, fully aware that there was no foul play involved.

The tireless Firmino dispossessed Jordan Ayew in midfield and rolled the ball into the path of Mohamed Salah who in turn fed Coutinho just outside the penalty area.

"The first half was not too bad: we grew into game, got a little bit of confidence, but after we conceded the second goal all belief and confidence drained from the players".

Trent Alexander-Arnold then netted his first Premier League goal for Liverpool FC in front of the Kop, before Firmino added his second of the evening moments later. Paul Clement subsequently lost his job, and with the side rooted to the bottom of the table, getting anything from this second trip to Liverpool in just over a week would prove hard.

Ayew came close to restoring parity for the visitors on nine minutes but he directed his header into the hands of Simon Mignolet.

"In the second half we were better".

Liverpool will be looking to return to winning ways tonight when they take on an out-of-form Swansea City.

Alexander-Arnold made it three in the 65th minute, while Firmino added the fourth in a minute later.

On Adam Lallana getting some minutes on the pitch: "Good to have him back".

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have got himself on the scoresheet during Liverpool's 5-0 win over Swansea but he was still "disappointed" with his contribution to the clash.

Even when James Milner arrived in place of Robertson with 15-minutes remaining, reluctantly taking the arm-band from the star man in his role as the club's vice captain, the number 10's overall influence didn't wane.

"I have to be honest and say I didn't see that from a lot of players".
