  • Mohamed Salah

"The second half after conceding a goal all belief and confidence drained from the players", he said.

Less than two minutes later, Salah seized upon a terrible Leroy For backpass to set up an easy tap-in For Firmino.

Moments later another quick transition saw Salah freed in the box and he rolled it across for Firmino to tap home a no-look finish for 4-0.

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

Ayew then tried to make amends for his mistake, getting on the end of Wayne Routledge's high cross at the other end of the field but his shot was comfortably saved by Simon Mignolet.

Oxlade-Chamberlain then put the gloss on the performance by scoring Liverpool's sixth eight minutes from time.

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.

The first half was punctuated by poor decision making in the final third for Liverpool: Firmino squandered several chances by choosing to shoot from distance and Mo Salah found himself surrounded by defenders in the area without an option on more than one occasion.

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.

- Only Manc City in 1995-96 and Derby County in 2007-08 scored fewer goals in their first 20 games of a Premier League campaign (10 each) than Swansea Cith have this season (11).

However, the Brazilian did double the advantage on 52 minutes, finishing smartly at the back post from Coutinho's cross.

The Estonia global lamented Jurgen Klopp's side leaking three goals in five minutes at Arsenal, as Liverpool slipped to a 3-3 draw at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night. "At the end he scored two goals so that's nice, very nice".

Firmino grabbed his second shortly after, tapping home into an empty net following unselfish work by Mohamed Salah. The Liverpool-born right back sprinted onto the ball before powering it off the underside of the bar for his first Premier League goal.
