Liverpool ended their league campaign with a disappointing away defeat at the Liberty Stadium to finish the season in 8th position.
Despite going all the way to the final in both domestic cups, the reds will look back on a disappointing campaign in the league. The reds away performances, whilst not spectacular, have not been the reds main problem this season. Nine home draws alone at Anfield have cost the reds 18 points. 18 points alone that would have been the difference between 8th and finishing in 3rd place.
Liverpool were without Martin Skrtel, widely acknowledged as the reds player of the season, and club captain Steven Gerrard all missed out through injury. Pepe Reina also missed out through illness - allowing Doni another start in goal. Left back Jose Enrique was only fit enough for the bench after missing the victory over Chelsea in midweek.
It was a game of two halves at the Liberty Stadium, with Swansea having the better first half chances whilst the reds were in the driving seat for most of the second half, until four minutes from time when Swansea grabbed the games only goal.
The reds first warning came when Doni picked up a backpass from Andy Carroll. Liverpool dealt well with the free kick from inside the area.
Rodriguez had a chance at the other end, in what will be his Liverpool swansong, but he fired wide.
Sigurdsson, Swansea's most dangerous player, fired a free kick goalbound but it was tipped around the post by Doni.
Second half and Liverpool were the more dominant. Henderson seeing his shot saved, before Carroll's acrobatic overhead kick was also stopped by Vorm.
But against the Liverpool pressure, Danny Graham fired home with just four minutes left on the clock to end the season on a high for the Swans, and a disappointing defeat for Liverpool.
Liverpool won't have too much time over the summer, as the return to European football will start early - the reds enter the Europa League in the 3rd qualifying round.
Many of the reds signings last summer have failed to reach the standard expected. The club will be hoping for much better transfer success in the summer ahead.» Forum post match discussion on this game
