Balotelli comes to Liverpool's rescue in Capital One Cup comeback

Dejan Lovren's late winner secured a quarterfinal place for Liverpool.

LIVERPOOL, England -- A trio of observations from Liverpool's 2-1 win vs. Swansea in the Capital One Cup fourth round.

1. Balotelli finally delivers

When Mario Balotelli jogged onto the Anfield pitch in the 79th minute, Liverpool were going out of the Capital One Cup and were exiting without a whimper. Indeed, for the second time in three seasons, Brendan Rodgers faced the prospect of elimination by former club Swansea.

Yet one of the benefits of having an unpredictable character is that his impulsive,...

Swans full of controlled aggression and discipline ahead of tough November

Wilfried Bony bagged a brace to give Swansea their first win in five matches.

Swansea picked exactly the right time to break a five game winless streak. After Saturday's 2-0 victory over Leicester, the Swans will face Everton, Arsenal and Manchester City with only a cup game for relief -- and that's against Liverpool.

Saturday's opposition might not have been as challenging, but the Swans win was nevertheless the result of renewed focus, concentration and confidence. Here are three talking points from the match:

Montero shines in first start

Garry Monk finally made the change...

Starting Montero would be the right move for Monk versus Leicester

Swansea manager Garry Monk speaks of the importance of getting the full three points in their upcoming fixture against Leicester.

Last week's post-match tirade from Garry Monk might have generated a few more headlines had the midweek Champions League matches not been so interesting. As things stand, most of the fuss Monk made about referee bias and cheating players has died down; Monk has been given until Oct. 27 to "respond" to the FA, which presumably means "apologise to the FA" or at least soften his position, which the Swans boss has adamantly stated he will not do.

In the meantime, the season marches on. Saturday's...

Winning, not the referees, should be Garry Monk's focus at Swansea

Swansea City manager Garry Monk says Victor Moses should be punished for a blatant dive during his side's 2-1 loss to Stoke City.

It's refreshing to see a manager speak his mind. Mark Hughes criticised Garry Monk's post-game rant following Stoke's 2-1 victory over Swansea but at least Monk's tirade will force the FA to think about his comments. The price of 'professionalism' -- when managers play it safe and talk around controversial issues instead of addressing them directly -- is that those issues are then conveniently ignored and left for another team to suffer on another day.

Monk does have a point. Swansea's penalty...

Swansea aim to take their chances in an upcoming visit to Stoke City

Gylfi Sigurdsson will look to continue his fine international form as Swansea returns to Premier League action away to Stoke City.

Since Swansea's promotion to the Premier League, games against Stoke have typically ended in comfortable home wins. Last season was an exception, when each fixture ended in a draw, but only because referee Bobby Madley's bizarre invention of a nonexistent handball gifted Stoke an equalizing penalty with the last kick of the game at the Liberty.

Swansea lessons: Sigurdsson shows the way and Bony is back

How Will They Line Up's Anthony Richardson recaps this weekend's play in the Premier League.

Football can be an unforgiving game sometimes. Matches like Saturday's 2-2 draw against Newcastle are proof enough of that, and show why Swansea need to bring their A-game every time -- because even when the Swans are on top form, there's still no guarantee of maximum points.

Had Swansea played as well against Sunderland the week previously, it seems very likely they'd have chalked up another win. Instead it's two draws on the bounce despite Swansea outplaying a poor Newcastle side in every area...
