‘Gritty, hard fought and an important three points’ – Liverpool fans on late 2-1 win at Swansea

Liverpool were in danger of suffering a defeat against an under-performing Swansea City side but they recovered from an awful first half display to secure a 2-1 victory.

It was a familiar line-up for the Reds at the Liberty Stadium, with Dejan Lovren returning to the starting XI after missing last week’s clash against Hull City through illness.

Divock Origi recovered from an injury to make a late substitute appearance, joining Daniel Sturridge, who replaced Adam Lallana after 20 minutes when the midfielder picked up a groin injury.

Borja Baston, Swansea’s record signing, made his full Premier League debut but it was the host’s main goal-scorer, Leroy Fer who broke the deadlock after just eight minutes.

Roberto Firmino netted his third goal of the season as Liverpool mounted a comeback in the second half and James Milner scored his fourth penalty of the campaign to seal a 2-1 victory.

Here’s all the best reaction from Liverpool fans on social media;
