Liverpool vs. Swansea score, highlights: Klopp-led Reds stumble as Chelsea smiles

"Damaged? That's a pretty harsh word", said the Liverpool manager on the implications for his team's title hopes. It was a big opportunity to take three points and we gave them the opportunity to win the game.

"I can feel it's not that positive around us any more".

'If it would be that easy to buy one new player and all the problems are solved, then why should I be that silly and not do it? A new face would have been nice, granted, but we have absolute faith that this group of players are strong enough to overcome a hard period and remind the rest of the league of how they managed to make it into the top four in the first place.

"Even a point at Anfield would have been a very good result for us, but I think it shows the character of the team that we wanted to get the win and push on a little bit towards the end, and we got the goal".

"For two weeks we've been moaning about "Oh he can't play because he's supposed to play at the Africa Cup of Nations" and all of a sudden he's not starting the guy". After Llorente sent the visitors into a surprise 2-0 lead just after halftime, Roberto Firmino scored two goals to tie the score but Gylfi Sigurdsson grabbed the victor in the 74th minute. So that's the problem, not that Joel couldn't play all the time.

Liverpool's loss to Swansea was their first at Anfield in over a year which added up to a spell 25 games so dropping another one in such quick succession would be quite a achievement even in this insane era of Merseyside unpredictability.

Former Ireland, Chelsea and West Brom defender Paddy Mulligan believes Jurgen Klopp has a tough task on his hands finding a solution to their "soft centre".

"Clubs are saying "no we have half a year to go, we cannot find another player like this, we prefer to take money in the summer, than a few pound more in the winter than whatever".

It was their first loss at Anfield this season and it was a significant one as they failed to make ground on Chelsea who now sit at the top of the table with a comfortable cushion. They had counter-attack, really clear moments, where they had chances.

"The gaffer has come in and the way we train with the intensity is so tough".
