Jordan Henderson's fluke second-half goal kept the Reds firmly in contention for a top-four finish.

Liverpool got lucky on 68 minutes when Jordi Amat slid in to clear the ball and it ricocheted back off Henderson and looped over Swansea keeper Lukasz Fabianski.

Victory took in-form Liverpool to within two points of Manchester United in fourth place.

Chelsea lead on 64, ahead of Manchester City (58) and then Arsenal (57) and United (56).

Since losing to United at Old Trafford in mid-December, Brendan Rodgers' side have won 10 and drawn three in the league.

Since Christmas, Liverpool have picked up 32 points, 10 more points than Chelsea have managed in the same time.

The top four teams get to play in the Champions League next season.
