Liverpool finds clinical edge to beat Swansea 5-0 in EPL

Klopp has acknowledged ahead of Liverpool's clash with bottom side Swansea at Anfield on Tuesday that a Premier League title challenge is beyond them given they trail leaders Manchester City by 20 points.

It took just six minutes for Liverpool to take the lead through Philippe Coutinho and the nerves were felt at Anfield when the Reds were only 1-0 up heading into the half time break.

Roberto Firmino scored either side of a fantastic finish from young Trent Alexander-Arnold in the second half before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain rounded off the scoring in the last ten minutes. "That is the way football works", he said.

Liverpool had conceded just four goals in their previous nine Premier League games before shipping three at the Emirates, but defensive errors have been consistent through-out the season and often come at costly times.

"Even in a not really good first half, we had enough chances to score two or three goals", he said.

Four killed after Moscow bus drives into underpass
Mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin, took to Twitter to express his condolences to the families and friends of the victim. Sobyanin himself arrived at the scene, telling journalists he had ordered a full inspection of the entire Moscow bus fleet.

What's open and closed over Christmas

Track Santa at home and on the road
The NORAD Santa Tracker first started in 1955, but the history of the Santa Tracker is actually pretty amusing and ridiculous. NORAD's predecessor CONAD (The Continental Air Defense Command) started tracking Santa in 1955 by chance.

"So we had these few problems and in the second half we did it better". It's hard when the game is going like that but you have to face up to it and take responsibility. Either way, it was a statement of intent from the South Wales club that they were here to give it a go, and caretaker manager Leon Britton prowled the touchline offering quiet encouragement to his players, and dishing out team instructions.

"I have to be honest and say I didn't see that from a lot of players".

"The second-half hurts a lot more, when I see that second-half performance it hurts an very bad lot". 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.

Emre Can failed to test Fabianski after Kyle Naughton's misplaced pass created an opportunity for a second Liverpool goal, before Ragnar Klavan dived in to block a McBurnie strike at the other end as Swansea settled.

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