Leroy Fer bundled the ball in after a corner was played in by Swansea and Liverpool couldn’t clear their lines. The Reds were poor in the first half and Swansea really should have scored more. Borja Baston was the chief culprit as he missed a number of great chances.
The Reds came out a different side in the second half and pummelled the Swans into submission. It was Roberto Firmino who glanced home a header after the break to make the score 1-1. Liverpool then dominated the game and it was Firmino who was fouled late in the second half.
James Milner stepped up to score his fourth penalty of the season and gave Liverpool all three points. This was the fifth win in a row for Liverpool and here are the best Twitter reactions after the game.

Liverpool haven’t gone this far into a season (7 games) without keeping a single clean sheet in the League for 24 years. #LFC
