Leroy Fer gave the Swans an early lead but the visitors came from behind to make it five wins in a row in all competitions, thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino and the Englishman


James Milner netted a late penalty as Liverpool came from behind to beat Swansea City 2-1 and pose further questions over Francesco Guidolin’s future at the Liberty Stadium.

Leroy Fer’s fourth Premier League goal of the season put the Swans, whose last home win came against Liverpool in May, ahead in the eighth minute.

Liverpool lost Adam Lallana to a groin injury during a first half in which they failed to register a shot on target, a far cry from the 5-1 win over Hull City last time out.

But Jurgen Klopp’s side quickly addressed that in the second half, as Roberto Firmino headed them level.

And Guidolin, who has not tasted victory in the league since the opening-day win over Burnley, was left empty-handed again when shambolic defending led to Angel Rangel fouling Firmino in the box, Milner scoring his fourth spot-kick of the campaign.

Mike van der Hoorn had the chance to equalise deep in stoppage time but volleyed horribly wide from five yards out.
