Comments:

League position: 13th Swansea City had now won four consecutive home games in the top division for the first time since March 1982. The Swans held a 2-0 lead in the Premier League for the first time since their first home game of the season against Newcastle United.

Comments:

League position: 8th Liverpool had now kept only two clean sheets in their last 13 away games in the Premier League. Christian Benteke scored his 50th goal in the Premier League in this game. This was the Reds' youngest starting line-up for a league game since 1971. [c/o LFC Match by Match] They had now used 33 players in the league in this season; more than in any other season in the club's history. [c/o Ged Rea] Liverpool named only six of a possible seven substitutes due to Connor Randell being unwell.
