    Swansea 5-4 Crystal Palace

    It's all over. Truly, truly remarkable - and that's just Cabaye's hair colour.

    Nine goals - seven in the second half - four in 11 minutes.

  2. Post update

    Swansea 5-4 Crystal Palace

    Palace putting huge pressure on the Swans goal...

  3. GOAL - Swansea 5-4 Crystal Palace

    Fernando Llorente

    I give up. This was 1-1 not so long ago.

    Gylfi Sigurdsson's shot is blocked and trickles into the path of Fernando Llorente who stabs in.

    They were 3-1 up, then 4-3 down and now 5-4 up.

    This has to be the first game on Match of the Day.

  4. GOAL - Swansea 4-4 Crystal Palace

    Fernando Llorente

    Stupid. Just stupid.

    I don't mean the goal was stupid, it's just this match is stupid - in a good way, if that makes sense.

    Anyhow... Fernando Llorente's shot is brilliantly saved at point-blank range by Wayne Hennessey but the loose ball is fired back in by Gylfi Sigurdsson with Llorente getting the last touch. 

    No surely not...

  5. GOAL - Swansea 3-4 Crystal Palace

    Christian Benteke

    Yes, this has just happened.

    Palace were 3-1 down and are now 4-3 up.

    Three goals in nine minutes has turned the match 360 degrees, or even 720 degrees.

    The ball is played into the area where Scott Dann is again on hand to head towards goal. There goal hanging is Christian Benteke who sweeps a shot against the near post but sees the ball nestle in the other corner. Pinball and all that.

    Remarkable stuff at the Liberty.

  6. GOAL - Swansea 3-3 Crystal Palace

    Wilfried Zaha/Jack Cork

    Extraordinary. One of the goals of the season... if you like freak goals.

    Wilfried Zaha's attempt cross from 40 yards out on the left takes a huge deflection off the head of Jack Cork and loops in over the reach of Lukasz Fabianski.

  7. GOAL - Swansea 3-2 Crystal Palace

    James Tomkins

    Quiet one this, eh?

    So, Yohan Cabaye's corner is met with a Scott Dann header. Jay Fulton appears to hold James McArthur and appears to make him play a ball into the path of James Tomkins who taps in. Simple.

  8. GOAL - Swansea 3-1 Crystal Palace

    Leroy Fer

    Leroy Fer

    All's Fer in...

    Anyway, it looks like the Swans are on their way to winning their first league game since the first day of the season.

    Gylfi Sigurdsson's free-kick from the right is flicked on by the head of Jordi Amat and arrives at the far post where Leroy Fer - who has made the far post his home - fires in his second goal in the space on two minutes.

  9. GOAL - Swansea 2-1 Crystal Palace

    Leroy Fer

    A masterstroke by Bradders.

    The corner is swung in and is met by the head of Fernando Llorente, who with his first touch, heads towards goal.

    'Man-on-the-line' Yohan Cabaye fails to deal with it and Leroy Fer steals in to tuck the ball away.

  10. Post update

    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Swansea are shovelling on the pressure. Leroy Fer's shot from 18 yard takes a deflection and goes behind for a corner. 

    Bob Bradley brings on Fernando Llorente. He twists.

  11. CLOSE-ISH!

    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    He should have crossed.

    Wayne Routledge cuts out Scott Dann's pass, teases Joel Ward one way and then the other before firing an angled shot wide of Wayne Hennessey's near post.

    He had two men in the area waiting for him.


    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Palace's James Tomkins makes one of the best tackles of the season to prevent Modou Barrow from shooting.

    The ball is played into the area and as the Gambian is about to pull the trigger the ex-West Ham defender steams in to hook the ball away.

    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Swansea have another attack down the right - it's Modou Barrow again.

    His attempted cross is cleared out for a corner by Martin Kelly, who has been excellent.

    The corner eventually results in another free-kick when Andros Townsend pulls back Wayne Routledge. Yellow for AT.

    Gylfi Sigurdsson, out on the left of the area, whips in the resulting free-kick but this time Wayne Hennessey easily holds.


    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Poor fella. The stretcher is out and Connor Wickham's right leg is wrapped in some sort of protective medical sheeting.

    He is taken off and Andros Townsend comes on. Wish him a speedy recovery.

    Connor Wickham
  15. Post update

    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Swansea win a corner after more good work by Modou Barrow and more good defending by Martin Kelly.

    The corner is cleared but moments later Connor Wickham goes down after seemingly twisting his knee, or something, as he went to challenge Gylfi Sigurdsson. It looks very nasty.

  16. KICK-OFF

    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    We are back under way.

  17. Post update

    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    The teams are back out. Swans boss Bob Bradley is deep in conversation with his backroom staff on the sidelines. Is it about tonight's Strictly?


    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    "Where's Llorente?" you probably aren't crying.

    He's on the bench. The Spain striker's agent, his brother Jesus, was quoted in the Italian media as saying that "things aren't going well" at Swansea for Llorente, and that he had suffered from a change of manager as Bradley's predecessor Francesco Guidolin had signed him from Sevilla.

    "Fernando has a future here, he is a good man," said Bradley.

    There you go.


    Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace

    Wilfried Zaha put Palace ahead before Gylfi Sigurdsson equalised with a Gylfi Sigurdsson-type free-kick.

    Palace should be 2-1 up to be fair.
