Liverpool recovered from a poor start to beat Swansea 2-1 and move up to second in the Premier League table on Saturday, while Chelsea got back to winning ways against Hull.

Outplayed for half the match by struggling Swansea and trailing after an early goal by Leroy Fer, Liverpool was a different team after the break and took the points thanks to a late James Milner penalty.

Liverpool has won five of its opening seven matches and has 16 points, two behind leader Manchester City which plays third-placed Tottenham Hotspur (14) on Sunday.
