Four goals in the second 45 minutes saw the Premier League's bottom side hammered 5-0 at Anfield.

Philippe Coutinho's stunner gave the host the lead early on, before Roberto Firmino, who scored two in that match in January, doubled the advantage seven minutes into the second half.

Liverpool stayed fourth in the standings, four points behind third-placed Chelsea and 17 behind leaders Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp has admitted bowing to external pressures to start Trent Alexander-Arnold in Tuesday's 5-0 demolition of Swansea City, following a meeting with the full-back's mother. "That is the way football works", he said. The last half an hour was fantastic, a joy to watch, a very deserved win.

Another masterclass from their gifted attacking players put Liverpool back in control of the race to qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.

"Five minutes in the Arsenal game was not good but the performance was good". It's half man of the match poll and half power ranking, and we want to use it to find out who you think played well after each Liverpool match and, at the other end, who you'd maybe like to see given the next game off. It's hard when the game is going like that but you have to face up to it and take responsibility.

Swansea caretaker boss Leon Britton blamed the team's loss to a loss in concentration, especially in the second half.

"I'm part of it, of course it's the players out on the pitch".

"When you go to one of the so-called bigger clubs and perform like that and get the result - especially in the position we were in, with the confidence low". Paul Clement subsequently lost his job, and with the side rooted to the bottom of the table, getting anything from this second trip to Liverpool in just over a week would prove hard.

The 26-year-old scored twice, with his second an easy tap in after being found in acres of space by Mohamed Salah with the goal at his mercy.

"We have to keep going, whether that's myself or someone else".
