Liverpool star Coutinho scores rocket goal in demolition of Swansea

Roberto Firmino's late equaliser salvaged a point for Liverpool Roberto Firmino's late equaliser salvaged a point for Liverpool

Liverpool strolled past Swansea City on Boxing Day, stuffing their opponents 5-0 en route to their 11th straight unbeaten game in the Premier League. Goals by Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are worthy of note, but it's the Brazilian duo of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino who will likely top voting today.

Coutinho needed just six minutes to conjure some typical magic when he curled the ball in from distance.

However, the floodgates opened for the Reds in the second half, as Firmino masterfully volleyed home a Coutinho free kick to double the advantage.

Firmino then added his first of the night when he fired home in the 52nd minute for the home side.

"I could not say how many goals he has scored this season because I feel he is always involved".

Swansea's response should have been immediate, but Jordan Ayew headed straight at Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

Klopp, who wanted to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in the summer, has stood by his defence so far this season; not even criticising them after last week's capitulation at the Emirates.

Lalu Prasad convicted in corruption case
Meanwhile, the BJP in Jharkhand said Prasad's conviction proved that those involved in corruption would not got off scot-free. Lalu's Prasad's elder son Tej Pratap, a former Health Minister, also visited a temple in the morning to pray for his father.


Liverpool away last season was the result that turned Swansea's season around under Paul Clement but the Swans were dealt an early blow in repeating last season's heroics.

Leon Britton's side needed to score at least once in order to get anything from this game, and had scored just 11 in 19 before this game.

After half time the first chance fell the way of the Egyptian, but his left-footed curler was placed too soft and too central.

Liverpool will be looking to return to winning ways tonight when they take on an out-of-form Swansea City.

Emre Can failed to test Fabianski after Kyle Naughton's misplaced pass created an opportunity for a second Liverpool goal, before Ragnar Klavan dived in to block a McBurnie strike at the other end as Swansea settled.

Jurgen Klopp has made the astonishing claim that Liverpool are a defensive team.

Salah then went close twice in 30 seconds, steering a low shot wide after another clever Coutinho free-kick before being blocked one-on-one by the keeper.
