Fans witnessed a thriller of a game on Sunday when Swansea City took on Liverpool at Anfield.

The Swans, having impressed in Europe by earning a draw against Napoli, were high on confidence. The same could be said for the Reds however, as they looked to close in on securing that Champions League spot. Liverpool went out with a strong team, starting both Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.

Sturridge had scored in every league game since November, however Suarez had only scored one in his last seven games in all competitions.

The game started with a bang, as Raheem Sterling's brilliant pass put Sturridge through on goal. He didn't disappoint, running past Michel Vorm and smashing it into an empty net. The Reds doubled their lead on 20 minutes, as Jordan Henderson scored a peach of a goal, calmly slotting it home. Vorm could only watch. 

The game, however, wasn't nearly over as Jonjo Shelvey's shot from outside the area curled away. Liverpool were starting to look shaky at the back and weren't pushing up like they did to score the first two goals. The Swans took advantage of that as Wilfried Bony, who had been in great form this season, scored a great strong header to complete the comeback.

Their relief didn't last long however, as Sturridge scored his second after putting away a brilliant Suarez cross. Sturridge has been prolific for Liverpool this year, scoring 16 league goals before this game.

Swansea had a bright start to the second half, gaining a penalty early on. Bony, who earned the penalty, slotted it into the far corner past Simon Mignolet, who dived the right way but couldn't get there.

Liverpool kept knocking on the door, but they couldn't get past Vorm again until Henderson scored his second and Liverpool's fourth.

A thrilling encounter, both sides played well but it was Liverpool who came out on top 4-3.
