Alfie Mawson struck in the 40th minute for the game's only goal, the Swans producing an impressive backs-to-the-wall display to secure what could yet prove a vital win.
Jurgen Klopp may be in his best spell as Liverpool manager but the German still craves consistency from his team.
"We need all the players to score goals and we need everyone at 100 per cent of their best level and even if we have that we are not the strongest team in the competition".
"If we just care about our opponents we will not play, so we must block them and the main attributes that they have and we will try to make it hard for them".
The Redmen have been in scintillating form in the league and have not tasted defeat in their last 14 Premier League games. In the last five games, Swansea City has won two games, lost one game and drawn two games whereas Liverpool has won all the five games. Swansea have looked better at the back under Carvalhal, but it is hard to see the home side keeping Klopp's side at bay. Adam Lallana could take Gini Wijnaldum's place in the midfield trio alongside Emre Can and Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Liverpool soon settled into their passing routine and when Van Dijk hoisted the ball forward in the eighth minute Sadio Mane was just unable to gain control on the edge of the six-yard box under pressure from Lukasz Fabianski.
Liverpool are 18 matches unbeaten after seeing off table-topping Manchester City at Anfield last time out, a polar-opposite match to Monday evening's affair.
Swansea City have shown an improvement since the appointment of Carlos Carvalhal, but their upcoming fixtures suggest they could become cut adrift before things improve further.
"They have strong points, but a team that lets in three has weak points also". At the time of writing, they are four points from climbing out of the relegation zone. "We are so proud and happy because we made the people of Egypt happy", Gaber said. The players now have more confidence and more organisation.
