Daniel Storey for Football 365:
However, there can only be overwhelming satisfaction at the night’s work. Rodgers’ tactical tweaks coming off? Check. Liverpool pouring players forward with glorious abandon? Check. A continued vulnerability in defence counteracted by some flowing counter-attacking verve? Check, check and check. It may have taken exactly half of their league season and a series of underwhelming performances and results but, finally, 2013/14 Liverpool came to the party. They left punch-drunk and giggly.
Liverpool were superb—almost as good as Shelvey was bad. Coutinho was threatening, Sterling showed good movement, Lallana was energetic, and Can was solid. It could be that Swansea were that bad, but it showed all the signs of a Liverpool team on the right track.
