A LIVERPOOL WIN TO NIL.
Neil Atkinson, Gareth Roberts, Rob Gutmann and Simon Hughes are in for the big show this week as Liverpool secured their first Anfield League win under Jürgen Klopp.
While not particularly convincing, Liverpool managed to restrict their opponents to no shots on target and could have registered more than their own solitary goal from the penalty spot in horrific conditions.
Is any win played in a hurricane a good win or should Liverpool have turned the screw faster and harder considering Swansea's recent struggles?
Do Liverpool need a thumping win at Anfield to get the juices flowing properly a kick start a yet again lacklustre atmosphere on our home turf?
Will a clean sheet and another impressive display from Martin Skrtel and the ever-improving Dejan Lovren help boost confidence amongst a suddenly quite miserly back four?
Has Gibbo got Alby all wrong? The Spanish flyer certainly divides opinion, and in this case over the course of one game!
Did the midfield cope admirably in the absence of the influential Lucas, or was the Swansea midfield so tame that it was never really a contest?
And with Steven Gerrard in the dug-out looking on, the game saw the return of the current Liverpool captain and star striker, who both got their first minutes under the new boss.
Will Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge now have a fight for their place in a Liverpool side slowly gaining momentum, or will the pairs quality see them automatically write themselves on the team-sheet?
And after a weekend of score draws and pitch invasions, suddenly the Reds find themselves six points off the top with a 'winnable' run of fixtures in front of them.
And with Southampton on the horizon, do the Red’s have a squad deep enough to push on and take another step to Wembley?
Handily placed with everything to play for?
