BLAST FROM THE PAST: Swans v Liverpool
13th March 2015
Swansea City 1-0 Liverpool
Barclays Premier League - Sunday, 13 May 2012
Danny Graham scored his 100th career goal to secure victory for Swansea over Liverpool to end their debut Premier League season on a high.
Graham struck from close range with four minutes remaining to secure a memorable win s the home side finished the campaign in 11th place.
There was a carnival atmosphere inside the Liberty Stadium as the home crowd celebrated what had been an impressive season in the top-flight.
And the hosts dominated the early proceedings, with Reds goalkeeper Alexander Doni penalised for picking up a long back pass from Andy Carroll. From the resultant free-kick Gylfi Sigurdsson passed the ball short to Scott Sinclair but his shot was deflected over for a corner.
Liverpool's first chance of note came on 14 minutes when Maxi Rodriguez flashed a shot wide of the post, but Swansea continued to control the game and Sigurdsson saw his shot blocked on the line by Maxi following Joe Allen's corner.
The visitors were finding it hard to get a foothold in the game and Sigurdsson, after being fouled by Shelvey, hit a free-kick low past the edge of the wall but Doni got down to his right to tip the ball round the post.
Liverpool started the second half with more purpose with Jordan Henderson firing straight at Vorm, while Carroll came closest to opening the scoring when he hit a spectacular overhead kick which forced Vorm into a fine save.
The visitors looked the more likely side to score as the game entered its final stages with Carroll's low shot forcing Vorm into another save, but it was the home side who finally broke the deadlock with four minutes remaining.
SWANS: Vorm, Rangel, Williams, Caulker, Taylor, Britton, Allen, Dyer (Routledge, 79), Sinclair, Sigurdsson (Gower, 88), Graham.
