Swansea City 0-2 Liverpo0l – Match Highlights
[ English Premier league 2015-16 ]
68′ 0 – 1 Jordan Henderson
After Arsenal and Manchester United register premier league wins on saturday and sunday respectively Liverpool were under pressure going into the monday night football against Swansea City. Liverpool needed three away points to come just 2 points closer to Manchester United with massive tie coming up next week between the two sides which might pretty much turn out to be a deciden on who will finish top four.
Brandan Rodgers explained ahead of the game that he won be starting Liverpoo captain Steven Gerrard just for the sake of sentiment and he will have to earn his place and that was the case as Liverpool went with Allen, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson in the midfield with Gerrard on the bench.
Liverpool played a high tempo and high pressing game in the first half where they had decent chances to get the lead against Swansea but match finished 0-0 at the break. Rodgers would have taken a draw in this game if we were still in 2014 but since the turn of the year this Liverpool team has been the most inform side of all 20 premier league teams and that what they showed in second half when constant pressure from Liverpool lead to a lucky but well crafted goal, when Swansea defender tried to clear the ball but it deflected off henderson into the back of the net with Lukasz Fabianski stranded.
