Liverpool 4-3 Swansea City: Henderson strike helps Reds edge seven-goal thriller

Liverpool edged out Swansea City in a 4-3 thriller at Anfield to keep a firm grip on a top-four place and deny the impressive Swans a vital Premier League point after a fine performance on Sunday afternoon.

Four goals in a breathless opening 27 minutes saw Daniel Sturridge put the hosts two goals up before former Reds midfielder Jonjo Shelvey and Wilfried Bony hit back to level for the Swans.

Jordan Henderson put the hosts back in front after 37 minutes, but a penalty two minutes into the second half from Bony once again levelled things up.

However, Henderson struck once again in the closing stages to give Brendan Rodgers’ side a key victory in their quest for a Champions League qualifying place.
