The Swans came into the game making their intentions known as early as the 19th minute when Tom Caroll’s shot was deflected off to Lovren in goal.

Fernando Llorente eventually opened the scoring for the visitors barely three minutes into the second half when he tapped-in a scrambled ball off a corner kick - from close range.

The shocking moment came five minutes later when Llorente headed home the second goal to silence the entire Anfield as Liverpool face a herculean task to salvage a point.

The hosts pulled one back when Roberto Firmino headed home in the 54th minute and then stunned the crowed with a brilliant individual strike to put the score line at 2 – 2.

Then the moment came for Swansea when Gylfi Sigurdsson slotted home a loose ball in the Liverpool danger area to ensure his side return home with maximum three points.

It ended; Liverpool 2 – 3 Swansea.

Jurgen Klopp’s men remain on 45 points, seven behind league leaders Chelsea while the victory shoots out of the relegation zone with 17 points.

Liverpool face another massive encounter when they host Chelsea in their next game on January 31; Swansea will be at home to Southampton on the same day.
