Swansea City 1-2 Liverpool

Match report

27 Sep 2016
Swansea City v Liverpool

James Milner scored his fourth penalty of the 2016/17 Premier League season to give Liverpool a come-from-behind victory at Swansea City.

Milner kept his cool from the spot with six minutes to go after Roberto Firmino was fouled in the area by Angel Rangel as the Reds secured their fourth straight league victory.

Swansea took the lead on eight minutes when Leroy Fer touched home from close range after Borja Baston, making his first Premier League start, headed a corner back across goal which Mike van der Hoorn touched on.

Liverpool responded on 54 minutes, Firmino heading into the bottom corner from a lofted ball into the box from Jordan Henderson.

Philippe Coutinho's curling effort went just wide soon afterwards before Milner's late goal, which could have been cancelled out had Van der Hoorn converted a superb chance to seal a point in stoppage time.
