Coutinho inspires Liverpool rout

Britton has urged Swansea's strikers to step up to the plate

Roberto Firmino scored either side of a brilliant strike from Trent Alexander-Arnold, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completed the rout eight minutes from time with a well executed volley.

Captain for the day, Philippe Coutinho scored the only goal of the first half.

The first half was lit up by one stunning strike from Coutinho, but the second half was well and truly illuminated by four more goals from a Liverpool side who are unstoppable once they reach full flow.

Oxlade-Chamberlain then put the gloss on the performance by scoring Liverpool's sixth eight minutes from time.

Coutinho nearly produced a moment of brilliance with a clever taken free-kick in the 56th minute that setup Salah inside the box, but the Egyptian's strike could not find the target.

Swansea caretaker manager Leon Brittan, who expects to be in charge for their next game with Watford as no managerial appointment is imminent, felt his players were guilty of making fundamental errors at Anfield. When players leave it is down to others to step up and take the lead role.

"When you see the result is 5-0 that it was an easy game but it wasn't an easy game".

Swansea had a good spell of possession but Liverpool never looked anxious defensively, and equally the home side were creating chances with Emre Can, Firminoand Salah at the other end.

Roberto Firmino won the ball back in midfield, fed it to Salah and his first-time pass found Philipe Coutinho in space.

Salah had the first effort after the restart, cutting onto his favourite left foot but his curled effort that so often this season has landed in the back of the net, ended up in Lukasz Fabianski's grateful arms.

Jurgen Klopp insists he is not interested in Liverpool's personal goal scoring feats.

But after the second goal, the confidence completely went.

The goal was a big moment for the youngster, who had a stellar game and will look to push on and start more often over Joe Gomez in Nathaniel Clyne's absence this season.

Swansea claimed a shock 3-2 victory in their last visit to Anfield, thanks to goals from Fernando Llorente (2) and Gylfi Sirgudsson, and Britton is hoping a repeat result can inspire the club in their fight against relegation.

Firmino added the fourth goal in the 66th minute with a simple finish into an empty net after some good work by Salah in the build up.
