FULL TIME: Liverpool 1-0 Swansea City


Swansea have the chance to load the box but Gylfi Sigurdsson completelty wastes it, overhitting his cross so that it bypasses everyone.


Five minutes of added time at Anfield.


James Milner and Bartley, who seems to have been involved in every incident of note today, collide in the box but play is waved on as the ball pinballs around the Liverpool box. It eventually falls to Williams' but his header is wide of goal.


With just over 10 minutes to play, Swansea are starting to throw players forward here.


Liverpool and Milner come close to getting their second of the afternoon with Henderson finding him in space in the box. The ex-Manchester City midfielder however can only drag his shot wide.


And here he is! Daniel Sturridge enters the fray to replace Benteke for these final 20 minutes.


With 20 minutes to go at Anfield, it looks like Daniel Sturridge is preparing to come on.


Here's more for Liverpool to cheer, Jordan Henderson is off the bench to make his return from injury, replacing Roberto Firmino, whose had a fairly quiet evening.


Ibe breaks away down the wing and lifts a cross into the box but it hits the arm of Neil Taylor on it's way. Penalty! James Milner steps up and calmly coverts. Finally, something has happened.


Goal! Liverpool 1-0 Swansea (James Milner)


Penalty! Liverpool


Liverpool are waking up a bit now as Jordon Ibe cuts in from the wing and hits one towards the bottom corner, but Fabianski is able to get down there and palm the ball away and around the post.


No changes from either side, by the way.


And we are back underway at Anfield.


Remember the vibrant Liverpool who destroyed Manchester City in 45 minutes last week? Can we have them back, please? It's been a very drab affair at Anfield where there has barely been a chance worth talking about.


Half time: Liverpool 0-0 Swansea


Liverpool have a free kick out on thr edge of the box when Bartley clips Benteke. It's a good chance for Klopp's side to fashion something of note but Moreno fires a poor efforts well over. A classic, this hasn't been.


The only thing of note to have happened in the last five minutes or so has been the sight of Daniel Sturridge beginning to warm up on the sidelines to warm applause from around Anfield.


Liverpool have been the better side for the past 10 minutes but Swansea have a rare opportunity on the break through Andre Ayew, who fouled by James Milner. The England international appeared to get enough of the ball, but has been shown a yellow card anyway.


It's been relatively quiet out there since that Benteke chance, if you can call it a chance. There are some cries of protest as Williams appears to pull back Benteke just inside the Swansea box, but the referee isn't interested.


Emre Can lifts a decent ball over for Benteke just inside the box, The Belgian turns, looking to find the room to pull the trigger but before he can Ashley Williams is across to win the ball back.


Liverpool are denied by the woodwork! It comes in bizarre circumstances as Lallana plays the ball through to Ibe. Bartley races across to intercept but in doing so hammers the ball towards his own goal, only for the post to come to his rescue.


Quiet start to proceedings at Anfield. Will Liverpool attack with the same verve we saw at the Etihad Stadium last week?
