Liverpool shocked by bottom-placed Swansea

Liverpool shocked by bottom-placed Swansea

After the highs of their thrilling 4-3 win against Manchester City in their last Premier League game, a flat Liverpool performance was not enough against a battling Swansea side that collected three valuable points thanks to a 40th minute goal from Alfie Mawson. "We need points and we will have to see whether we can win enough to stay in the Premier League".

"We didn't keep the right positions that we wanted to do to cause them problems".

"They have strong points, but a team that lets in three has weak points also".

"Then obviously we gave them the opportunity to score, a second ball after the set-piece when we defended the first set-piece already and then we gave the opportunity to have another one and they scored from that".

Swansea went ahead five minutes before the break when an attempt to clear by Liverpool's 75 million pounds ($104.88 million) defender Virgil Van Dijk landed at the feet of Mawson who swept the ball home for his sixth league goal this season.

Liverpool piled on the pressure in the closing stages but Can and Salah wasted stoppage-time opportunities before Firmino nearly broke Swansea hearts.

Cape Town City announce the signing of Allan Kateregga
Former AFC Leopards winger Allan Kateregga has signed for Cape Town City in South Africa. Club boss John Comitis shed some light on the thought process behind the new arrival.

"No-one would leave to any other Premier League club during the season".

"At half time we said OK, maybe we can start doing what we wanted to do at the beginning, but because of the first half we were not secure in what we were doing". They didn't on Monday and that happens, but if the Swansea manager thinks those tactics will work every time he's mistaken. As a Liverpool player you can not perform one week and then two weeks not - we need to deliver consistently, every day and each game. Klopp added: "Swansea knew that to win today they needed our help and unfortunately we gave it to them".

After the final whistle, the new Swans boss elaborated on the analogy he used this week when explaining how his team needed to play to beat Liverpool.

"We could have equalised at the end, but didn't have that luck".

"They are like a Formula One vehicle".

Klopp's side had plenty of chances to get on the scoreboard, Sadio Mane firing wide in first-half stoppage time and Mohamed Salah seeing his free-kick tipped over magnificently by the impressive Lukasz Fabianski. But at 4:00pm in London it will be hard to speed, they would be a vehicle like any other.
