Liverpool beat Swansea City 5-0 in English soccer’s Premier League today as Reds manager Brendan Rodgers secured an emphatic win over his former team.

Steven Gerrard opened the scoring with a penalty in the 34th minute at Anfield and the other goals came from new signing Philippe Coutinho on his debut, Jose Enrique, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge (penalty).

Liverpool had been winless in the previous five games in all competitions. The club lost its last league game 2-0 at home to West Brom and went down by the same score at Zenit St. Petersburg in a Europa League round of 32 first-leg game three days ago.

Today’s result moves Liverpool up two places to seventh while Swansea drops one place to eighth. They’ve both played a game more than other teams.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup fielded a weakened line-up as his team prepares for the League Cup final against Bradford City a week today.
