UPDATE: LIVERPOOL 2, SWANSEA CITY 3

@OptaJoe3 – Liverpool have conceded 3 goals at Anfield in a league game for only the 2nd time under Jurgen Klopp (also Arsenal in Jan 2016). Creak.

And here we go again. Yes you’re right, it’s another goal and this time it’s the Swansea City as Gylfi Sigurdsson sweeps home past Simon Mignolet to make it 3-2 for the visitors in the 74th minute. What a game we are having at Anfield.

Brilliant. Brilliant from Liverpool and Roberto Firmino as the home side has answered back with two in a row to draw level at 2-2. Firmino, who scored the first for the Reds superbly took a cross from Georginio Wijnaldum down on his chest and then fired in his brace and his team’s second in the 69th minute.

Liverpool, playing with some purpose after letting two goals in, quickly pulled a goal back through Roberto Firmino in the 55th minute. What a game in the second half, with three goals scoring in seven-minutes. More please!

Liverpool were hit by another setback four minutes after conceding the first goal and it was big the No. 9 Fernando Llorente, who netted again. The striker rose high to head past Simon Mignolet in the 52nd minute.

Fernando Llorente has given Swansea City a 1-0 lead against Liverpool after the striker poked home from close range, following a corner kick from Gylfi Sigurdsson that was knock-down into the six-yard box by Federico Fernandez in the 48th minute.

END


Philippe Coutinho makes his first Premier League start for Liverpool since November and will be part of a three-man attack as manager Jurgen Klopp hunts three points to close the gap on leaders Chelsea.

Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana will start alongside Coutinho in the attack.

Defender Nathaniel Clyne returns at full-back, while centre-back Joel Matip, who received clearance by FIFA to play for his club, is on the bench.

Dejan Lovren, Ragnar Klavan, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Emre Can all start as well.

Swansea City, in the meantime, has handed full debuts to two new recruits, Martin Olsson and Tom Carroll.

Olsson comes in to start at full-back, while Carroll will start in midfield.

Stephen Kingsley and Ki Sung-yueng are the players making way and not even on the bench, while Leroy Fer returns to the starting XI in place of Nathan Dyer, who is on the bench.
