Liverpool thrashed Swansea 5-0 at Anfield on Boxing Day to climb back in to the top four.
Tottenham had leapfrogged above them earlier in the day after they romped past Southampton with a 5-2 victory over Southampton but Jurgen Klopp’s men responded in style as bottom club Swansea struggled to handle Liverpool’s outsanding attack.
A Philippe Coutinho wonder goal, brace from Roberto Firmino, first goal goal in front of the Kop for Trent Alexander-Arnold and first Anfield goal in the Premier League for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain secured the three points for Liverpool in a hugely impressive display.
Having not won their last three home games the pressure was on to ensure they came away with a win, particularly after watching Spurs win earlier in the day, but Swansea were unable to replicate their win at Anfield last term and the Reds ran away with it in the end.
Here’s how the Liverpool fans reacted to the victory…
