Mesut Ozil

GETTY Arsenal contract rebel Mesut Ozil bagged his fourth goal of the season against Liverpool

It allowed Liverpool to regain fourth place after Tottenham's victory earlier in the day but left Swansea five points from safety after a seventh successive away defeat.

Philippe Coutinho, captain in the absence of the injured Jordan Henderson, scored on his 200th appearance for the club after just six minutes.

Liverpool was comfortable but needed a second goal to put the match beyond its visitor and, after Salah had an attempt saved by Fabianski, Firmino latched on to a Coutinho free-kick over the top to volley beyond the Poland global.

Klopp was pleased his players were able to rectify their mistakes of the first half and convert their chances more clinically after the restart.

Liverpool doubled their lead in the 52nd minute through Firmino who volleyed home from a Coutinho free kick.

Trent Alexander-Arnold added the third when Andrew Robertson's cross was only half cleared.
