Birmingham City were convincingly defeated in the only Championship game on Sunday afternoon as Swansea City stuck three past them to move to second in the table.
The game was goalless at half-time but that only proved to be a false front as the Welsh side became rampant in the second half.
Kyle Naughton, Bersant Celina, and Borja all netted within 12 minutes of each other to condemn Pep Clotet to a second Championship loss this season.
There was potentially one glimmer of positivity from the match, however, as teenage midfielder Jude Bellingham made his Championship debut for the club and in doing so became the youngest-ever player to feature for the club in the league.

Bellingham is just 16 years of age and replaced David Davis in the 76th minute.
Earlier in the summer, the club somehow managed to keep hold of the starlet despite gaining attention from the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City.
A number of fans reacted to his debut.
Some were positive, praising the 16-year-old for his attitude with one calling him a top pro and another claimed the club were desperate for someone who really plays for the badge.
One supporter blasted the decision to bring him on, saying it wasn’t good for his confidence whilst one said he is no Trevor Francis.
Here’s the best of the reaction:
Top pro already – the first over to the away end. This kid will go far.
Well done, Jude ??

Its good to be blooding the youth but I feel we are only doing it to make headlines & publicity now. Jude will be a great player, he’s a level headed lad but can we praise him when he plays well and contributes etc. Im in no way knocking Jude but the club are using him as a pawn

Could see the annoyance on your face. Desperate for someone who really plays for the badge. Take the mantle. Drive us forward.
