Liverpool 5 Vs Swansea 0


A Luis Suárez inspired performance, aided and abetted by new boys Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho to victory against a Swansea side that had more than one eye on the League Cup Final.

With Swansea minds elsewhere and Liverpool playing on the back of successive 2-0 defeats, the game had a subdued, end-of-season air.
After an initial flurry when Jamie Carragher prevented Shechter reaching Roland Lamah's pass to the near post and Lamah, making his first league start, had an optimistic penalty appeal against Glen Johnson rightly refused, the visitors created nothing.

The reds peppered Michel Vorm's goal with shots, although it was only after Kemy Agustien committed a foul on Suárez in the area on 34 minutes that they convinced in attack. The reds had 11 shots in the opening 20 minutes, with only one hitting the target.

Johnson headed wide from Stewart Downing's inviting cross, Suárez shot over, Sturridge went close from another Downing delivery and Anfield lambasted the referee Howard Webb for denying Sturridge a penalty when the striker was fouled by Kyle Bartley.

Then came Agustien's challenge on Suárez as the reds striker retrieved a Steven Gerrard corner at the back of the area and cut to the byline. The contest changed irrevocably. The ball was almost out of play when the Swansea midfielder tripped Suárez and assistant referee Mike Mullarkey signalled for a spot-kick. Gerrard made amends for his penalty miss against West Bromwich by beating Vorm low to the goalkeeper's right.

Only 20 seconds had gone in the second half when Suárez released Coutinho with a fine pass. The £8.5m acquisition advanced on Garry Monk, twisted him inside and out, and shot through Vorm's weak guard.

A flowing move down the Liverpool left ended with José Enrique converting Sturridge's ball across the box, Suárez scored a fine goal when he collected Gerrard's pass, beat two defenders and found the bottom corner and Sturridge scored the reds second penalty following a handball by Wayne Routledge.
