Lallana leads Liverpool rout over Swansea

IT was a double blow for Swansea when Liverpool claimed its biggest win of the English Premier League season at the Swans' expense yesterday.

With Adam Lallana (pictured) scoring a second-half brace, the Reds not only won the match at Anfield 4-1, but they also jumped ahead of Swansea and into eighth place on the table.

Alberto Moreno got the scoring underway for the Reds in the 33rd minute, before Lallana found the net twice in 10 minutes just after the break, either side of a Gylfi Sigurdsson goal for the Swans. Jonjo Shelvey's own goal completed the rout.

"We gave away a poor goal and it goes to 2-1 and they almost score again straight after so that is a frustration," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "But, apart from that spell the work-rate was outstanding and we were really exciting going forward."

EPL ladder: Chelsea 46, Man City 43, Man Utd 36, Southampton 33, Arsenal 33, West Ham 31, Tottenham 31, Liverpool 28, Swansea 28, Newcastle 26.
