Swansea v Liverpool

That's it, Liverpool take all three points at the Liberty Stadium. That win moves them to within two points of fourth-placed Manchester United who visit Anfield on Sunday. Swansea remain where they started the night in ninth place.



Swansea 0-1 Liverpool


Liverpool hit the post! The away side pounce on the counter and it's two on one as Coutinho cuts in from the right before teeing up Sturridge on the edge of the box. He cuts inside Naughton, working the ball onto his right foot and side foots one for the corner, but he is denied by the woodwork!


Four minutes of time added on at the Liberty Stadium.


Emnes is immediately involved as he tries to battle his way through a wall of Liverpool defenders but is eventually dispossessed.


And a final change for Swansea as Sigurdsson comes off for Marvin Emnes.


Final change for Liverpool as Glen Johnson replaces Lallana.


Swansea's zip has faded in this second half, and Liverpool have benefited. Garry Monk's side have visibly tired as this contest has gone on.


Elsewhere tonight, Reading have booked their place the semi-finals of the FA Cup after easing past Bradford City with a 3-0 win. They meet Arsenal in the last four.


Allen shows some neat foot work in the box, keeping possession well before working the ball out to Sterling who fizzes a cross into the box. Sturridge is in the middle but can't react quick enough and whacks his header over the bar.


Another change for Swansea, Ki is off to be replaced by Nathan Dyer.


Swansea come again with Montero picked out in space on the left. He has a great chance to find a teammate in the box but his cross is harmlessly lifted into Mignolet's arms.


Sturridge lifts a wonderful pass into the box from the inside right channel, taking three Swansea players out of the game. It falls to Sterling but he lifts his effort well over the bar. Not really sure what he was going for, there.


Coutinho tries to find the far right corner from the edge of the box. His first attempt is charged down, but has another after a quick one two with Lallana. His second effort is far better and flies just wide of corner.


Shelvey tries to catch Mignolet out from 40 yards out but can't quite pull it off. Meanwhile, Jefferson Montero is on to replace Routledge.


Liverpool take the lead through the flukiest goal you'll see this month. Sturridge slides an excellent ball through for the onrushing Henderson but Amat get's first first. He slides across and clears but it comes back off the shin of Henderson and loops over Fabianski!


Goal! Swansea 0-1 Liverpool (Jordan Henderson)


Liverpool probe carefully, working the ball from right to left to find Lallanaon the edge of the box. He beats Naughton but Allen can only prod his cross straight at the goalkeeper.


Steven Gerrard is now coming on, replacing Alberto Moreno.


Some excellent Swansea pressure forces Sakho into making a poor pass at the back. Allen tries to help out but he too is squeezed and Swansea eventually win a corner for themselves. It;s cleared at the first time of asking, however.


Sigurdsson takes it but his effort bounces into the grateful arms of Mignolet.


Swansea come forward again and win a free kick 30 yards out from goal following a foul from Can.


Good save from Fabianksi! Sterling again tears down the right and lifts in a cross towards his near post. Coutinho is well placed to prod it on target but the Swans goalkeeper reacts well to save. Liverpool win a corner, but nothing comes from it.


Gomis chases a nervous-looking Sakho back into his own box but the Swansea striker gives away a needless foul that relieves the pressure on the away side.
