Swansea:

Michel Vorm: No obvious errors but took up a poor position off-centre for Victor Moses' goal. 6

Angel Rangel: Unruffled at the back and forced Jose Enrique to focus on defending more than attacking. 7

Ben Davies: Impressed as the most attacking full-back on display, though final ball could be improved. 8

Chico Flores: Solid in the heart of the Swansea defence and made a crucial late interception. 8

Ashley Williams: Rarely troubled but booked for late, high challenge on Coutinho. 6

Jonjo Shelvey: Two extremely poor errors to gift Liverpool their goals but recovered well to lay on Michu's equaliser. 6

Leon Britton: Neat on the ball and grafted off it; played a large part in Michu's goal. 6

Nathan Dyer: Quiet in the first-half on return from injury. Subbed at half-time. 6

Wayne Routledge: Some bright moments but didn't create enough. 6

Michu: The most threatening of Swansea's attackers and got his first goal of the season. 7

Wilfried Bony: Worked hard and caused problems without really threatening Liverpool goal. 6

Substitutes:

Jonathan de Guzman: Imposed himself on the second half and went close with a late free-kick. 7

Alejandro Pozuelo: Displayed some neat touches and threatened after coming off the bench. 7

Liverpool:

Simon Mignolet: Dominated his box and made a fine late save to stop de Guzman's free-kick. 8

Andre Wisdom: Solid but had to be replaced after being booked in the second half. 6

Martin Skrtel: Great challenge to deny Bony a tap-in. Solid alongside Sakho. 8

Jose Enrique: Solid in defence but failed to impose himself going forward. 6

Steven Gerrard: Not as influential as he would have liked on 400th appearance as skipper. 6

Philippe Coutinho Quiet before being substituted early in the second half. 5

Victor Moses Notched a debut goal but plenty more to come. 6

Daniel Sturridge Showed great anticipation for his goal and created space for Moses to score. 8

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
