Liverpool ended 2014 on a positive note after beating visiting Swansea City 4-1 at Anfield on Monday.

Two goals from Adam Lallana, one from Alberto Moreno and a Jonjo Shelvey own goal were more than enough to put smiles on the faces of the Reds’ fans as they go into the New Year.

Moreno put Liverpool ahead in the 33rd minute, before Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski hit a clearance straight at Lallana as the former Southampton player scored his first of the day in the 51st minute.

Gylfi Sigurdsson replied for Swansea just a minute later, but Lallana restored the two-goal lead by going around two defenders and slotting a low shot inside the far post in the 61st.

Former Liverpool midfielder, Jonjo Shelvey headed in an own-goal in the 69th, giving the home team four goals in a game for the first time this season.

The victory also moved Liverpool above Swansea in the Premier League table, finishing the year with a positive goal difference at last.

The victory also moved Liverpool above Swansea into eighth, with both on 28 points, five outside the top four Champions League spots.
