The Reds were handed their first league defeat at Anfield for a year as the win moved Paul Clement's side out of the bottom three.

Liverpool were on the end of a shock defeat when bottom club Swansea City repelled a dramatic comeback from Juergen Klopp's title chasers to earn their first-ever league win at Anfield on Saturday.

Unbeated run at Anfield ended by Llorente

The Welsh strugglers leapt out of the bottom three with a quite extraordinary win that stunned Liverpool fans who had not seen their title challengers lose a home match league there since defeat by Manchester United a year ago. Spanish international Fernando Llorente was the hero in Swansea's first league victory under new manager Paul Clement, toe-poking the ball home two minutes after halftime and heading home another five minutes later.

Sigurdsson bags all three points

After Roberto Firmino had dragged Liverpool back into the game with two quite superb goals, it seemed wholly unlikely that the visitors could survive the onslaught until the ball broke for Gylfi Sigurdsson to slot home their 74th minute winner.
