Swansea City 3-2 Burnley

Well that was a conservative affair. Not much to talk about, really.

Anyway, if you want to read about all about the five goals and controversial penalty the report is here. And there's further analysis of all today's games here.

Thank you for joining me.


Swansea City 3-2 Burnley

All over at the Liberty Stadium and Swansea City have stolen all three points against Burnley in an entertaining affair.

Paul Clement is running around the pitch, applauding the supporters and they are loving it. I haven't seen anything like it.

He's loving it and you know what? They deserve it. That must be Swansea City's best performance this season.

Swansea City 3-2 Burnley

What a game this has been.

Swansea City fans, no you aren't dreaming. Yes, Fernando Llorente has just scored his second of the afternoon and how important could this be?

Tom Carroll crosses in for the Spaniard to head home. Paul Clement is running down the touchline as if he's Jose Mourinho. What a performance.

Blocked on the line!

Burnley are living dangerously here as, fresh from a Swansea City corner, the ball falls to Tom Carroll who fires in towards goal but Ben Mee is on hand to save the visitors for the second time this afternoon.


Swansea City 2-2 Burnley

Bad news for Swansea City.

Kyle Naughton has pulled up holding the back of his thigh and is replaced by Angel Rangel.


Swansea City 2-2 Burnley

A double change for the visitors as Sam Vokes and Joey Barton are replaced by James Tarkowski and Ashley Westwood.

Swansea City 2-2 Burnley

Jordan Ayew makes an instant impact after coming on as Burnley are forced to deflect his long-range strike out for a corner.

Martin Olsson eventually makes his way onto the ball and unleashes a powerful shot that dips just wide.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are more goals in this.

Martin Olsson celebrates his equaliser for Swansea
Martin Olsson celebrates his equaliser for Swansea

Martin Olsson has had quite an impact for Swansea since joining from Norwich in January.

The left-back has scored in successive home games, and both from a similar area. His emphatic finish today was from almost exactly the same spot as his goal in the 2-0 win over Leicester.

Not bad for a left-back, especially when you consider his predecessor Neil Taylor failed to score a single goal for the Swans.

Swansea City 2-2 Burnley

Oh you know, don't mind me, I'm just drooling watching replay after replay of that Swansea City equaliser.

First there's an insane back heel from Gylfi Sigurdsson, then Martin Olsson takes the ball into the box and smashes home at a tight angle.

Foot like a traction engine. Wonderful. I enjoyed that.

Swansea City 1-2 Burnley

Are Burnley heading for their first away win in the Premier League this season?

Just as Swansea City looked to be gaining a foothold in this match, Andre Gray doubles his tally for the afternoon with a terrific drilled shot after Sam Vokes knocked the ball down for him.

A great goal you have to agree, but I can't help but feel bad for Swansea. They have been superb this afternoon. Time is running out to get anything out of this match.

GOAL Swansea City 1-2 Burnley

Andre Gray (Burnley)

Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

Gylfi Sigurdsson works his way on to Tom Carroll's cross and edges the ball across the face of goal and just wide of the left hand post.

Is it going to happen for Swansea? They have half an hour left to make an impact.


Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

Leroy Fer goes into the book for a rash challenge on Joey Barton as the Burnley midfielder was clearing the ball away.

Barton winces as he jogs away. Big challenge.

Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

It's all Swansea City so far in the second half. Tom Carroll delivers a pinpoint cross into the box and goalscorer Fernando Llorente nods just wide of the mark.

Now would be a good time for a goal if you're a Swansea City fan.

Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

Swansea haven't taken their foot off the gas all afternoon, despite one huge decision not going their way.

Gylfi Sigurdsson again tries his luck with a long-range drive which Ben Mee is forced to deal with.

Don't rule out a comeback from Paul Clement's side.

Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

Back under way in south west Wales and neither side have made any changes.

Wonder if this half will provide more entertainment than the borefest we were treated to in the opening 45..

It's getting hostile inside the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea's players, coaching staff and fans are all furious with referee Anthony Taylor after his dreadful decision to award Burnley a penalty.

I think we can safely assume that talking point will dominate the post-match reaction.


Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

Two quick-fire free-kicks for Swansea but Burnley, who have all their players back, halt any further controversy from this ridiculous opening 45 minutes.

Paul Robinson palms Gylfi Sigurdsson's free-kick away for a corner but referee Anthony Taylor blows for half-time. Boos ring around the stadium.

Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

The rain is falling quite heavy now at the Liberty. A metaphor for Swansea's fortunes in this half?

Fernando Llorente might not think so. He nods the ball onto the crossbar and the hosts are almost in front once more.

Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

What a chance!

Jack Cork, who has had two spells on loan with Burnley during his time with Chelsea, lays a neat ball to Gylfi Sigurdsson and the Swansea man unleashes a fierce shot from just outside the box that sails inches from the post.

To give the hosts credit, they have not backed down since conceding.

Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

Appeals from Swansea City fans for a penalty of their own and, would you believe it, this one involves Sam Vokes accused of handling again. Only this time it's in his own box.

Those appeals are waved away, however.

How has this match gone on just half an hour? I feel like I've been watching this for about a month with everything that's happened..

Andre Gray equalises from the penalty spot for Burnley

There is steam coming out of Paul Clement's ears after that penalty decision.

And quite rightly, too - Sam Vokes' arm was the only one outstretched in the Swansea penalty area, and the Burnley striker did not even appeal.

Football's governing bodies continue to debate whether video technology should be used to help referees. That decision from Anthony Taylor is a convincing argument to introduce those changes.

Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

Well that will surely be a talking point this evening.

In the build up to the penalty being awarded, Burnley won a corner and Sam Vokes rushed into the box, presumably trying to head the ball, but his outstretched arm seems to make contact with the ball and the referee eventually points to the spot.

Swansea's Gylfi Sigurdsson looks mighty annoyed and who could blame him?

Swansea City 1-1 Burnley

Andre Gray sends his penalty straight down the middle and Burnley are on level terms. What a crazy opening 20 minutes!

However, replays seem to show Burnley forward Sam Vokes handled the ball and not a Swansea player.

Well well well.

Confusion at the Liberty Stadium. Referee Anthony Taylor has seen a handball in the box and Burnley win a penalty!

What a few minutes for Swansea. After Alfie Mawson hit the bar and post, they have the lead after a good old-fashioned centre-forward's goal.

Leroy Fer deserves credit for an excellent, whipped cross - right on to the head of Fernando Llorente, who emphatically planted his header into the bottom corner.

It's telling that the goal came down Swansea's right wing - Burnley left-back Stephen Ward looks nervous against Luciano Narsingh's pace and he was booked after just nine minutes for a shove on the Dutchman. He's on thin ice now.

Swansea City 1-0 Burnley

What a lovely goal that is.

You have to say Swansea City deserve it. Mere minutes after Alfie Mawson hit the woodwork twice in quick succession, Leroy Fer curls in a lovely ball to the onrushing Fernando Llorente who heads home from close range.

That's his tenth goal of the season. How important will that be come the end of the season?

GOAL Swansea City (Fernando Llorente)

So so close

Swansea's Alfie Mawson hits the bar with a header from the free-kick and then the ball works its way into the box and Mawson unleashes a close-range shot that cannons off Paul Robinson's right-hand post.


Swansea City 0-0 Burnley

Stephen Ward brings down Luciano Narsingh midway through the Burnley half and Swansea are awarded a free-kick.

Swansea City 0-0 Burnley

A relatively tame start in a chilly Swansea this afternoon. 

Veteran Burnley keeper Paul Robinson, making his third appearance of the season, has been untested despite Swansea dominating possession. An early Swans corner was well defended by the visitors.

All square so far.

We are under way at a rainy, overcast, miserable Liberty Stadium.

Clearly Swansea City think assistant manager (and, judging from this picture, Mr Suave) Claude Makelele is worth keeping around.

They are planning to open negotiations with the former Chelsea midfielder and France international over a new deal at the Liberty Stadium, as his current deal expires at the end of the season.
