Jamie Carragher tweets after Roberto Firmino goal vs Swansea

It's fair to say that Liverpool endured a tricky opening 53 minutes against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. 

Jurgen Klopp's side failed to truly get going in Wales and fell behind within the opening eight minutes of the contest thanks to a tap in from defender Mike van der Hoorn. 

In all honesty, Francesco Guidolin's side could have been out of sight at the break, but the Swans missed a whole host of chances to put the game to bed.

Things got worse for Liverpool during the opening 45 minutes as Adam Lallana, who had been in fine form for the club in recent weeks, was forced through injury. 

The half-time break, of course, represented a chance for Reds chief Klopp to get hold of his players and put his side on the right track for the second period.

As you can see below, Reds legend Jamie Carragher predicted that the game would open up in the second half. Carragher was right. 

Klopp's side were a completely different prospect during the second half and proved a constant threat to Lukasz Fabianski's goal. In fact, much like Swansea scored inside eight minutes of the first half, Liverpool struck eight minutes into the second period. 

It was 24-year-old Brazilian ace Roberto Firmino who headed home to equalise for the Reds. As you can imagine, Carragher once again opted to take to social media to respond to Liverpool's goal.

But Carragher was in no mood to praise Liverpool's scorer, instead claiming that he had been "awful" up until his goal. 

Well, to be fair to Firmino, he wasn't the only one struggling before the Reds' equaliser. The goal gave Liverpool the confidence they needed to claim all three points as James Milner netted a late penalty for the Reds following a foul on, you guessed it, Firmino.
