Liverpool 0-0 Swansea
Barclays Premier League - Saturday, 5 November 2011
A fine performance from Michel Vorm helped earn the Swans a deserved point in an entertaining contest at Anfield.
Swansea, who had never won on Merseyside, impressed with their slick passing and possession that earned them only their second away point of the season.
Liverpool, however, could have gone ahead early on when Andy Carroll rattled the crossbar and Luis Suarez fired a fraction wide of goal.
At the other end, Pepe Reina's reflexes were tested as Wayne Routledge's teasing cross evaded everyone with the Spanish goalkeeper tipping the ball away to safety.
The home side upped the tempo after the break as Vorm saved superbly from Suarez's header, while Danny Graham almost scored for the visitors after Nathan Dyer's shot was spilled by Reina.
Mark Gower then had a glorious chance to win it for Swansea late on as he fired over the crossbar from 12 yards out.
But Vorm was again called into action in the closing stages as he pulled off two sublime saves to keep Liverpool at bay.
First he tipped a fierce Suarez volley over the bar before the Dutch stopper clawed away a rasping effort from Glen Johnson in stoppage time.
LIVERPOOL: Reina, Johnson, Jose Enrique, Agger, Skrtel, Henderson (Kuyt, 46), Downing, Lucas, Adam, Suarez, Carroll (Bellamy, 74).
