Firmino scores double as Liverpool hammer Swansea

first_img0Shares0000Roberto Firmino has been directly involved in more goals under Jurgen Klopp than any other Liverpool playerMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 26 – Liverpool consolidated their place in the Premier League’s top four with a dominant home victory over managerless bottom side Swansea after hammering them 5-0 on Boxing Day.Philippe Coutinho’s sublime long-range finish – curled into the top corner after Mohamed Salah’s pass – opened the scoring in the sixth minute. The away side responded well and dominated possession for spells in the first half but Roberto Firmino should have doubled the lead when he dragged wide just before the break.Instead, the Brazil international put his side two goals up six minutes after half-time, firing home from Coutinho’s lofted free-kick.Nineteen-year-old full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold added a third with his first Premier League goal for the club, chasing down a loose clearance and smashing in off the bar from inside the box.Just two minutes later, Swansea self-destructed further as Salah pounced on a misplaced pass before cutting back to Firmino to tap home – then Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completed the rout by planting the ball in the net after another poor clearance.The result means Jurgen Klopp’s side reclaim fourth spot from Tottenham and restore their one-point advantage over the north London side, who briefly moved above them with a 5-2 win over Southampton in Boxing Day’s 12:30 GMT kick-off.Swansea stay bottom of the table, five points from the safety of West Ham’s 17th place.After Friday’s thrilling 3-3 draw at Arsenal, in which the Reds conceded three times in five minutes, Klopp rejected claims his side do not focus enough on defence.The Liverpool backline was not given its greatest test at Anfield on Tuesday – Swansea’s best football was played in the transition from defence to attack without actually threatening – but nor were there many instances of sloppiness or lapses in concentration.Indeed, Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet pulled off a great fingertip save to deny Tammy Abraham with the last touch of the game.Down the other end, there was much, much more of the rich and flowing offensive play that has typified the other side to the story of Liverpool’s season so far.Salah, Firmino and Coutinho interchanged at will and Swansea found their close control and trickery in the box impossible to deal with. The only problem for Liverpool was it perhaps took slightly longer than it should have done for them to reach their ruthless best.Salah, who went into this game having scored 15 goals in his previous 15 matches, was guilty of wasting several good chances before Alexander-Arnold really did open the floodgates with a third goal that left the visitors backtracking and beaten for the rest of the match.Firmino was withdrawn in the 68th minute – denied the chance of a likely hat-trick – and his replacement Dominic Solanke might have had a treble of his own, flashing his most impressive effort just wide of the post on the volley.However, the fact the England Under-20 World Cup winner failed to score his first Liverpool goal was the biggest of small problems for Klopp, who embraced the young forward with an ironic grin as they made their way off the pitch.The nightmare after ChristmasIt was always going to be a daunting task for Swansea.This was a trip to the one of the league’s top-scoring sides and their second of four matches in 10 days. The Welsh club with just three wins all season had the odds firmly stacked up in opposition.But until Alexander-Arnold’s goal – crafted from sheer desire to beat his man to the ball and profit – the Swans were actually still in it.Roque Mesa, Tom Carroll and Leroy Fer had impressed with some attractive interplay, Wayne Routledge was a threat on the wing and in the first half they were averaging about 14% more possession than Anfield’s other visitors this season.However, when Fer played the ball back to his defence without looking and found Salah instead, the game really was up. Firmino added the easy fourth, before slack defending from forward Jordan Ayew allowed Oxlade-Chamberlain a second chance to make it five.Even if his influence and potential candidacy will not be judged on this result alone, temporary player-manager Leon Britton will surely be very disappointed his side folded like they did.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Europa League berth hangs in balance after Southampton held

first_img Jay Rodriguez Southampton squandered several gilt-edged opportunities as they were held at home by FC Midtjylland in their Europa League third qualifying round first leg at St Mary’s.In a tame first half, debutant Oriol Romeu came closest for the hosts from range before former Saints academy player Tim Sparv broke the deadlock on the stroke of half time.Steven Caulker had a goal contentiously disallowed before Jay Rodriguez equalised from the penalty spot with his first goal in nearly 17 months.Caulker and Maya Yoshida were both denied by miraculous saves as the Danish side held on to gain the advantage ahead of next week’s return leg.Ronald Koeman handed full debuts to Romeu and Caulker after a resounding 3-0 defeat to Everton at the weekend, and the former fired narrowly over in a first half of few chances.Martin Stekelenburg in the Saints’ goal then reacted well to palm away after some head tennis in the penalty area, before Sparv, who was in the same youth side as Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott, struck a brilliant sucker punch from 20 yards as the visitors went ahead with the last kick of the first half.After the break, Caulker thought he’d equalised only to be penalised for supposedly fouling his marker, before Saints were handed a lifeline after James Ward-Prowse was felled in the box.Rodriguez, who hadn’t scored since he netted a brace against Newcastle the game before he ruptured knee ligaments in March 2014, confidently sent the Midtjylland goalkeeper Johan Dahlin the wrong way from the subsequent spotkick.Dahlin may have been well beaten by the penalty, but he was equal to everything else thrown at him as Saints pushed for a winner, including two sublime reaction saves from Caulker and then Yoshida at the death. 1last_img read more
