Liverpool thump Swansea to go seventh

Liverpool bounced back from back to back defeats by thumping Swansea City at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Steven Gerrard made a mends for his miss from twelve yards last Monday by burying a 34th minute penalty following Kemy Agustien’s foul on Luis Suarez.

Philippe Coutinho doubled the hosts’ advantage just after the break before Jose Enrique finished a sublime move to make it 3-0 moments later.

Top scorer Luis Suarez go in on the act on 56 minutes before Daniel Sturridge added a fifth from the penalty spot with twenty minutes left to play.

The result sees the Reds leapfrog both Swansea and West Bromwich Albion into seventh position, five points off a European qualification place though they have played a game more than all of the sides above them.

Brendon Rodger’s men did however have to finish the game with ten men, due to an injury to forward Fabio Borini, who looks likely to be out for the rest of the campaign after dislocating his shoulder in a challenge with Kyle Bartley.

The club will now turn their attention to Thursday’s Europa League last 32 second leg tie, where they trail by two goals to nil to Zenit St. Petersburg.
