Liverpool loses 3-1 at Swansea in Premier League

Sunday May 1st, 2016

SWANSEA, Wales (AP) — Liverpool’s much-changed team was beaten 3–1 at Swansea in the English Premier League on Sunday, with Andre Ayew scoring two goals.

Liverpool rested some players ahead of the second leg of its Europa League semifinal against Villarreal and paid the price, with one of the fringe players brought in—Brad Smith—getting sent off in the 76th minute at 3–1.

Ayew headed in the opening goal from a 20th-minute corner and Jack Cork made it 2–0 with a curling shot from the edge of the area.

Christian Benteke scored a header from a corner in the 65th before Ayew sealed the win two minutes later.

Swansea secured its Premier League status for another season.
