      It was a weakened Swansea side but we did just what was expected of a team like ours so no complaints at all. Very enjoyable match, wish all our games were like that.

      Suarez was a nuisance, he's wasteful at times but you can't complain about the man, his awareness is second to none, he reads the game so well, he's just everywhere.

      I'm in love with Daniel Sturridge, it wasn't even his best game and he actually missed a few chances, but I love what he brings to the team.
      Frankly, Mr Shankly

      Yep. I would agree. Best performance of the season. Excellent day! Thought Swansea did well in the first half with organisation especially Gary Monk. But from the second half onwards it was just rapid.

      Unlucky Borini though, tough luck that lad

      I'm from Swansea and that was the sweetest victory I've savoured in a long time. Brendan Rodgers puts the ghost of Swansea City to bed once and for all.

      And once the gaffer perfects our style against the bruisers, we'll be fine

      I'd like to thank Gerrard for letting Dan take the second penalty.

      Coutinho looks a good signing and scoring on his debut won't harm his confidence . If he grew a moustache and left the hair grow he'd look like Terry Mac

      Looking forward to watching this later, I hope.
      Thursday is looking a whole lot better than it was a couple of hours ago. That performance should give all the players a confidence boost.
      Well done Redmen!

      Now that was a refreashing change, great performance, and the result to match :)

      only bad side was fabio's injury, just hope its not to bad, the kid needs some luck.
      I just wish we play half as good as that come thursday, if we do Zenit wont know whats hit them.
      Anyways my MOTM would have to be Luis, simply unplayable today was a master-class and great to watch, so big thank you for posting the link so i could watch, probably the performance of the season..... so far ;)

      It seems a great pity that Sturridge is not eligble, for Thursday, seems to make a great difference up front. Well done to Stevie for letting him take the penalty with the game in the bag. Seems as if Swansea did not show up, but well done to the lads for taking full advantage.

      If Rodgers can string a few wins like that together and get us playing the same way each time the future would look a lot rosier.

      Every website is saying we had mid-50's possession and only 100 more passes than Swansea.

      Well that was f**king fantastic wasn't it! It was so nice to see us score 5 goals and it was even nicer to see it be 5 different scorers. Love spreading the wealth around like that. Suarez, Coutinho, Sturridge as an attacking three were absolutely brilliant.

      I, however, am going to be cautious about this result. That was a weakened Swansea side we played against. I know you can only beat what's in front of you, but it's not as if we beat their best XI. Cautiously optimistic right now.

      The one thing I am happy about was being clinical in the second half. We haven't been clinical the past few games, but we were in that second half with 4 goals. Fantastic to see. Need to be even more so on Thursday.

      Me too.

      The stream I was watching, not sure who was behind the stats, showed us over 60% possession any time it was on screen.

      Great result and performance.

      Don't wana sound like I'm putting a downer on things but I'm struggling to feel excited after that game cos all I could think throughout it was about the last home game against West Brom - which is still, for me, one of the most depressing games I've ever seen. Therefore it will take a long time and a lot of performances and results like today for me to get over it.

      You have to start somewhere, though, and today was as good as it gets.

      I was calling BS on that too. Felt like at least 70% and 650+ passes.

      Ah well.
