Jurgen Klopp says 5-0 Swansea result 'perfect' for Liverpool

REVEALED: Firmino earned amazing £150000 bonus from Liverpool win

"If you're making basic errors that you'd expect to see in academy football against Liverpool and the quality they've got then they're going to punish you", he said.

Manager Jurgen Klopp was pleased his players were able to rectify their mistakes of the first half.

Having fired Paul Clement a week ago, managerless Swansea remained on the bottom of the table.

Firmino took the ball away from Jordan Ayew and passed it to Mohamed Salah who played it quickly to Coutinho and the Brazilian curled his effort into the top corner.

But it was not until the second half that the floodgates opened with Roberto Firmino scoring either side of a brilliant strike from Trent Alexander-Arnold, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completing the rout eight minutes from time.

The visitors were up against it from the outset. "The first half was not too bad: we grew into game, got a little bit of confidence, but after we conceded the second goal all belief and confidence drained from the players".

"Five minutes in the Arsenal game was not good but the performance was good".

They managed to create one shooting opportunity in the opening period when the two wingers combined. Ayew had Mignolet scrambling across his box at the start of the second half, but the save was much easier than the Belgian stopper made it look.

Swansea caretaker boss Leon Britton blamed the team's loss to a loss in concentration, especially in the second half.

While Liverpool continued to have the better of the possession, Swansea showed occasional signs of addressing its own attacking problems.

However, Swansea's hopes of getting anything from this game dwindled when Coutinho dropped a free kick over their defence for Firmino to volley home.

Chamberlain netted the fifth goal seven minutes from time.

"I want to defend first of all; that's the basis for everything".
