On this day: Rodgers returns

25th November 2018

Michael Laudrup’s Swans side held Liverpool to a goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium on this day in 2012.

The match saw former Swans boss Brendan Rodgers return to South Wales for the first time since departing for Anfield the previous summer.

Raheem Sterling rattled the crossbar as the visitors pushed to break the deadlock, while Ashley Williams was denied by former Swan Joe Allen, who was on hand to clear he defender’s header off the line.

A first clean sheet in 11 games for Laudrup’s side saw them rise to eight in the Premier League table.
