Unfortunately, that's all we've got time for today. I've been Oliver Emmerson, taking you through Liverpool's win over Swansea. Until next time, goodbye!

That's it, all over! Liverpool come from behind thanks to a wonderful second half performance, they're up to second place! Four wins on the bounce in the league for Klopp's Reds. Swansea's troubles continue despite a spirited performance, they could find themselves in the relegation zone by the end of the day.

Full-time: Swansea City 1-2 Liverpool (Fer, Firmino, Milner)

90+3: So close! Rangel loops a ball into the area, Van der Hoorn finds himself in tons of space just yards out, but volleys the ball wide. 

90+1: Liverpool slightly lucky there, Barrow driving into the box, Milner cuts out his cross and the ball is straight back onto Barrow, out for the goal kick.

90: Four minutes of stoppage time, can Swansea find an equaliser?

89: Liverpool on the counter, Sturridge to Origi who threads Can through, the German's ball across to Mane cut out by Cork.

85: Changes for Liverpool straight after the goal, Firmino and Wijnaldum off for Can and Origi.

84: Cool as you like from James Milner, dinking the penalty straight down the middle to put his side ahead. 

GOALLL!! Milner scores the penalty!!!

83: A horrific clearance from Barrow, the ball hoofed miles into the air in the area, Firmino there to try and bring it down, barged over by Rangel. Firmino to take...


80: Coutinho's been surprisingly restrained in his shooting from distance today, especially given he was moved into a deeper position after Lallana's injury. However, he can't help himself that time, having a go from range, the ball deflected out for a corner. 

76: Having been pegged back for much of the second half, it's Swansea who areing forward now, putting Liverpool under a little pressure. Karius comes for a corner and msises the ball, but it evades everyone.

73: Liverpool want a free-kick on the edge of the box as Milner is tripped by Barrow, but nothing doing. Will either side find a winner in the last 20 minutes?

72: Guidolin making his final change, Leroy Fer off for youngster Jay Fulton.

69: Milner does well to win the ball in the area, opening up a shooting opportunity but he opts to set up Mane, unfortunately it's a poor ball and the winger is closed down. 

68: Clyne afforded tons of room down the right as Swansea worry about Mane, he shoots straight at Swansea.

65: Liverpool press Barrow and Firmino nicks the ball, eventually threading it to Coutinho who crosses for Sturridge, the ball out for a corner.

63: And another home change just a minute later, Ki on for Britton.

62: Change for Swansea, Modou Barrow on for Routledge, he'll be sure to test Milner with his pace. 

58: So close! Wijnaldum and Coutinho with a lovely one-two, before the latter curls narrowly wide of Fabianski's post from the edge of the area. 

57: Liverpool seem to have the momentum now, Mane spinning himself into a good position before Fabianski claims his cross, aimed for Sturridge. 

54: Coutinho's free-kick hits the ball, but Henderson's on hand to dink it back into the box, Firmino holding his run brilliantly before bursting into space to nod past Fabianski with an excellent header. Level at the Liberty!

GOAL! Firmino levels it up!!!

53: Britton booked, he knew what he was doing as he tugged at Mane's shirt. 

49: Close again for the visitors as Sturridge plays Mane in, the ball bobbling past Fabianski but swept off the line by Amat.

48: Liverpool finally test Fabianski, Firmino - now playing on the left - cuts inside before sending one back across goal, the 'keeper holds well. 

45: Back underway, can Liverpool get back into this?

We're halfway through and Swansea deserve their lead. They started much quicker than Liverpool, and got an early goal from a corner through Fer. They could have had more, with Borja Baston missing a golden chance to double their lead, whilst Liverpool haven't looked anything like the side that took apart Hull last week. 

Half-time: Swansea City 1-0 Liverpool (Fer)

42: Mane bursts into the box after Coutinho squeezes him through, but Amat closes him down and blocks brilliantly. 

39: Huge penalty appeal for Liverpool as Sturridge darts into the box and goes down under the challenge of Routledge, but Michael Oliver believes that he dived and books the forward. 

38: Jack Cork into the book, late and heavy on Nathaniel Clyne. 

35: Liverpool steadily improving, hoping to find an equaliser before half-time. Clyne with a low cross blocked out for a corner, which comes to nothing after bouncing off a few heads. 

29: Some extended pressure from Liverpool as Sadio Mane seems to keep the ball in the box for an eternity, he feels he was pushed as he goes down under even more pressure, but Michael Oliver says no.

27: Coutinho does brilliantly to win the ball from Britton in midfield, leaving him and Sturridge in a 2 - 2, but the Brazilian's pass is poor and taken by Fabianski's grateful arms.

26: Jordan Henderson becomes the first man of the day to get booked, tugging at Jack Cork. Liverpool almost concede from the following free-kick, Baston given space in the box but somehow heads wide. 

24: Liverpool back up to 11 as Daniel Sturridge comes on. 

22: Karius makes his first save of the day, Sigurdsson floating a ball over the top that Cork latches onto, the German 'keeper equal to his effort.

20: Bad news for Liverpool as Lallana can't continue, he tried to come back on but eventually went down hurt again, and the England midfielder hobbles off down the tunnel. Liverpool temporarily down to 10-men.

19: Adam Lallana down clutching his foot after battling with Leon Britton, the Liverpool man needs some treatment here. 

14: Jack Cork summing up Swansea's start with a tremendous burst forward to win a throw-in from Matip, unfortunately for him the Swans can't do anything from the resulting position.

11: How do Liverpool respond to this? Klopp was furious when his side conceded from a corner to Hull last week, but he'll be even more so this as his side were 3-0 up at the time against the Tigers. It's Swansea's first goal from a set-piece this season. 

8: Liverpool's corner woes continue, Baston at the back post heading it across to Van der Hoorn, who flicked it across for Fer to tap it home for his fourth of the season. 

GOAL! Leroy Fer puts Swansea ahead!

7: Swansea have made a decent start to this game, on the counter now as they race up the pitch, James Milner eventually putting the ball out for a corner. 

6: Close! Milner loses a header which puts Liverpool under pressure, Baston on the end of Naughton's cross, heading over the bar from 10 yards out. 

5: Swansea looking to build the first meaningful attack of the game, but Lovren's on hand to sweep away the danger before Karius claims a cross soon after. 

2: Liverpool looking to make a quick start. Matip to Lallana, who feeds Clyne down the right, his cross ushered away well by Amat.

0: Kick-off, underway at the Liberty Stadium between Swansea City and Liverpool.

We're almost ready to go here, the players are out of the tunnel

Liverpool make just one change from the 5-1 win over Hull City, with Dejan Lovren returning at the back in place of Ragnar Klavan. Liverpool: Karius; Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner; Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana; Mane, Firmino, Coutinho. Substitutes: Mignolet, Sturridge, Klavan, Moreno, Lucas, Can Origi. 

Swansea hand a first Premier League start to Borja Baston, who comes into the team in place of Fernando Llorente. Swansea: Fabianski; Naughton, Amat, van der Hoorn, Rangel; Britton, Cork, Fer; Routledge, Borja, Sigurdsson. Substitutes: Nordfeldt, Mawson, Taylor, Fulton, Ki, Barrow, McBurnie.

With under an hour to go until kick-off, the team news is in from the Liberty Stadium.

How about some team news for today? Swansea have few injury problems, with Nathan Dyer the only confirmed absentee, although Federico Fernandez is expected to miss out with a groin problem. Liverpool youngsters Joe Gomez and Sheyi Ojo are out, whilst Divock Origi is 50/50 to make the bench due to a foot problem. Mamadou Sakho is still away from making the first team squad, at this moment in time. 

Despite being favourites today, it was Liverpool who were on the end of a loss the last time these two met, losing 3-1 in the latter stages of last season. However, Jürgen Klopp did field Liverpool's youngest side in the Premier League era due to the game being played in-between the Europa League semi-final second legs against Villarreal. Adding to that, Andre Ayew bagged two that day, and he's no longer a Swansea player after leaving for West Ham United in the summer. 

Liverpool, as you might expect, have started the season in much better form, having picked up 13 points from their first six games. The first three were all away due to Anfield's redevelopment, and they started in mixed fashion, beating Arsenal 4-3 before losing at Burnley and drawing at Tottenham Hotspur. However, they've been superb since the international break that followed the draw at White Hart Lane. Leicester and Hull have both been thrashed at home, those wins sandwiched by the 2-1 triumph over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Reds are fifth currently, but will move into second for the time being with three points today. 

Swansea have had a tough start, having only picked up a point since they edged to an opening day win away at Burnley. Admittedly, they've have some tough games, with losses to Manchester City, Southampton and Leicester City making up that run. They did also pick up a good point away at Chelsea, the first side to avoid defeat to the Blues this season. However, the 0-2 home defeat to Hull City a week after the opening day was a real disappointment, as they failed to capitalise on their good start. All of this has left the Swans just above the relegation zone in 17th place, and manager Francesco Guidolin under severe pressure to turn things around. 

Where to start? Perhaps with the form of each side, as they've now played six Premier League games each, giving us a good chance to gauge how each side is looking for the season.
