Lack of Liverpool signings frustrates Klopp

Neymar fails to convince Coutinho to join Barcelona

The visitors' 3-2 win (their first at Anfield) ended a 17-game unbeaten streak at home for the Reds.

A delighted Clement, who has worked at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, was left to reflect on the unpredictable nature of the Premier League compared to its continental counterparts.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp suggested that he had never seen a side transform as much as what has happened since Clement took charge of Swansea.

Klopp's men showed grit to draw level by the 70th minute through a brilliant Roberto Firmino double, but came undone in the 74th minute when Gylfi SigurĂ°sson popped up with Swansea's victor. "If it was so easy you buy one new player and all the problems are solved I would do it".

Swansea had more nervous moments to come, with Fabianski blocking substitute Divock Origi's shot on the turn following a Milner corner, and then watching helplessly as Adam Lallana looped a header against the bar.

The lead was doubled in the 52nd minute as Llorente rose well to head home Gylfi Sigurdsson's inch ideal cross.

Carroll charged into the penalty area after taking on Llorente's pass and, as Klavan slid in to challenge, the ball ran loose for Sigurdsson to steer beyond the exposed Mignolet.

Archaeologists unearth link to Anne Frank at camp Sobibor
As a result, researchers are attempting to find surviving family members of each victim to determine if they were related. Researchers believe the pendant discovered at a Nazi death camp may have belonged to a relative of Anne Frank's .

"I know we could have done better [against Swansea] but I'm not afraid what other teams think".

Matip was on the bench for Liverpool's home defeat against Swansea on Saturday, but Reds boss Jurgen Klopp did not feel ready to use the defender, who only received clearance to play from Federation Internationale de Football Association at 8pm on Friday following an global spat with Cameroon. We do. But the thing is, the players we want, the clubs don't sell. It is not about money in this situation, it is the winter transfer market. If the right decision is not possible in signing the right player. then you can not make the wrong transfer.

Soccer's world governing body FIFA only gave Liverpool the go-ahead to play Matip last week after he turned down Cameroon's call-up for the African Cup of Nations, saying he had already retired from global football.

The Cameroon worldwide also featured for Liverpool's Under-23s against Ipswich yesterday as Klopp tries to get him ready for Wednesday's EFL Cup semi-final second leg clash against Southampton.

Phillipe Coutinho made his first start since November and Joel Matip's reprieve did not result in a recall as he started from the bench.

UP NEXT: Southampton (h), EFL Cup, Wednesday.

There are a lot of talking points to discuss but one key factor, for me, was the performance of Fernando Llorente.
