Liverpool Scarves

Following Liverpool's 4-1 victory over Swansea City in the Premier League, we bring you all the best Opta Stats.

Adam Lallana scored twice and Jonjo Shelvey scored an own goal as Liverpool saw off Swansea 4-1 at Anfield, a result that ensures the Reds end 2014 in eighth place in the Premier League.

Here are the top five stats from Monday night's encounter:

1 - This is the first time this season that Liverpool have scored four (or more) goals in the Premier League. At this stage last season they had hit four (or more) goals on five separate occasions in domestic action. The club end 2014 with 83 league goals, one fewer than they managed in 2013. 

4 - Own goals are now Liverpool's joint top-scorer this term. Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey scored the fourth for his ex-club in yesterday evening's clash, putting the ball into his own net. The Merseyside outfit's top scorers (Sterling, Lallana 4) have scored 15 goals fewer than they had at this stage last season (Suarez 19).

3 - Three of the 10 times Swansea have conceded at least four goals in a league match since the 2011-12 season have come against Liverpool. Amazingly, there was just one minute and 27 seconds between the Reds' second goal and Swansea's opener in last night's clash.

2 - Liverpool's Adam Lallana scored two goals in 10 minutes versus Swansea yesterday evening, having netted two in his previous 898 minutes of action in the Premier League this season. This is the first time the Englishman has ever bagged a brace in an English top-flight fixture.
