Liverpool edge Swansea thriller, Spurs undone

Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson both hit doubles as Liverpool FC – twice pegged back by Swansea City AFC – won 4-3, while Tottenham Hotspur FC lost 1-0 at Norwich City FC.

Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson both scored twice as Liverpool FC came out on top in a seven-goal thriller at home against Swansea City AFC.

Brendan Rodgers' outfit got off to an explosive start at Anfield, Sturridge rounding goalkeeper Michel Vorm to seize a third-minute lead and Henderson adding a top-corner curler on the 20-minute mark. Only four teams have kept fewer clean sheets than Liverpool, however, and Swansea responded in fine fashion, with ex-Reds midfielder Jonjo Shelvey crashing a stunning effort in off the crossbar and Wilfried Bony levelling the scores.

Sturridge and Bony traded goals either side of half-time in an entertaining affair before Henderson followed up a Vorm parry to earn his side the spoils and consolidate Liverpool in fourth spot, four points shy of leaders Chelsea FC. The Merseysiders have now surpassed Manchester City FC as the Premier League's top scorers, boasting a tally of 70 goals.

Tottenham Hotspur FC lie six points further back in fifth after slipping to a 1-0 reverse at Norwich City FC. Robert Snodgrass's bottom-corner curler settled the encounter shortly after the interval to lift the hosts to 14th and dent Spurs' top-four aspirations.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United FC celebrated a first win in five matches by dispatching Aston Villa FC 1-0 at St James' Park. Loïc Rémy ended the Magpies' seven-and-a-half-hour goal drought in added time to seal victory.
