Disappointed With Myself - Liverpool Star Self-Critical As Reds Crush Swansea City

Liverpool 5-0 Swansea City Coutinho's stunning strike helps rampant Reds stroll past Swans

Liverpool handed struggling Swansea an expected 5-0 thrashing in the English Premier League on Tuesday.

Philippe Coutinho, who was named as captain in the absence of the injured Jordan Henderson, scored the opening goal after just six minutes of the tie, in what was his 200th appearance for the club.

Young full back Trent Alexander-Arnold added the third, Firmino grabbed a second with a calm finish and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completed the rout.

"In the first half we did OK and we stepped it up in the second half".

"If you just look at the first half, the way we started, the way we played, the way we defended and attacked then I'd have to say we lost those two points", said Klavan.

"I think Liverpool will get some goals, but my only reservation would be if their manager Jurgen Klopp looks ahead to their next game, against Leicester on 30 December". It wasn't an easy game, it was really hard work and I have no problem with that.

The Anfield boss launched a staunch defence of his side's rearguard set-up in the wake of leaking three goals in five minutes to slip to a 3-3 draw at Arsenal on Friday.

Black Trump supporter accuses his former campaign manager of sexual misconduct
According to Politico , Villa claims was circulating at the party when a friend brought her over to introduce her to Lewandowski. The friend said he wished to remain anonymous, in part because of Lewandowski's continued influence in Trump circles.

'I want to defend first of all because that is the basis for everything.

'The goals (against Arsenal) came because we let them cross, it happens in a football game.

"Today it [my goal] wasn't so crucial as we were leading by a few, but I need to keep doing that".

Having fired Paul Clement a week ago, managerless Swansea remained on the bottom of the table.

"We made a lot of mistakes, some really basic errors, and against a side with the quality of Liverpool then you are going to be punished".

Liverpool was comfortable but needed a second goal to put the match beyond its visitor and, after Salah had an attempt saved by Fabianski, Firmino latched on to a Coutinho free-kick over the top to volley beyond the Poland worldwide.
