English Premier League: Liverpool 2-3 Swansea City


Swansea inflicted a devastating blow to Liverpool’s title hopes by condemning Jurgen Klopp to his first home defeat in over a year as they defeated Liverpool 3-2 at Anfield.

The game sparked into life after the break as Fernando Llorente scored twice in quick succession to give the Swans a shock two goal lead.

Roberto Firmino pulled one back for the hosts in the 55th minute with a header of his own.

Firmino again level things up for Liverpool in the 69 minutes as the forward chest down a Georginio Wijnaldum cross before lashing past Lukasz Fabianski as Olsson and Jack Cork watched on.

However, Gylfi Sigurdsson scored from close range with 16 minutes left to give Paul Clement his first win as Swans boss and the club their first away league victory over the Reds.

The defeat leaves Liverpool seven points behind leaders Chelsea, who now have a game in hand, at home against Hull on Sunday.
