On some level you have to feel bad for Swansea. They’ve had a rough season, they’re bottom of the table, and they came to Anfield hoping to make Boxing Day the start of their epic turnaround with a result against Liverpool.
And it’s all gone so, so wrong.
A stupid defensive mistake gifted the ball to Mohamed Salah, who ran on toward goal. With two Swansea defenders desperately following in his wake, Salah laid the ball off to Roberto Firmino, who made a run to the far post. Bobby Firm collected the ball and, meeting no resistance, swept the ball into the back of the net.
That’s 4-0 for the Reds with time running out. Goodnight, Swansea.
