Liverpool went ahead in the sixth minute through typical Coutinho magic. Roberto Firmino took the ball away from Jordan Ayew, and Mohamed Salah cued up the Brazilian scorer for a vicious curler from well outside the 18.
The game’s next chance saw Ayew force Simon Mignolet into a save on a ninth minute header.
Young Swans striker Oliver McBurnie produced a couple decent moments for the visitors in the first half in a surprise start, though Mignolet wasn’t really tested by the Leeds-born 21-year-old.

Salah took a cut pass from Firmino and worked around Federico Fernandez to test Fabianski in the 50th minute.
Firmino got his goal just over a minute later, running onto a Coutinho free kick and beating Fabianski to his right.
Alexander-Arnold ran onto a blocked shot and burst his shot past a flailing Fabianski to make it 3-0, before Firmino and Oxlade-Chamberlain supplied the final markers.
