90' + 3' SWANSEA HAVE ANOTHER! IT'S 5-4! Llorente has bagged another to give Swansea the lead. This is one of the games of the season for sure! Another long ball was not cleared well by Palace and Llorente is in the right place, at the right time to poke the ball into the back of the net.
Llorente
Goal
Swansea City
90' + 1' THEY'VE EQUALISED! 4-4! Fernando Llorente has got Swansea back into the game. First his header was superbly saved by Hennessey, but the ball then came out to Sigurdsson on the edge of the box, whose shot was deflected in off Llorente. Incredible!

Goal
Crystal Palace
84' PALACE GOAL! IT'S 3-4! Benteke has given Palace the lead! What a turn around this is, the striker was just two yards out when he fired home the knock-down from Scott Dann. A player of his ability was never going to miss from there.

J. Cork
Own Goal
Swansea City
82' PALACE HAVE EQUALISED! Jack Cork has headed the ball into the back of his own net. Zaha whipped the ball into the box and Cork tried to prevent the ball in, but his touch complety wrong foots his keeper and the ball flies into the back of the net to make it 3-3!
Àngel Rangel
M. Barrow
Swansea City
80' A defensive substitution for Swansea now, Barrow who has been superb today is replaced by Àngel Rangel.
78' Palace are pushing hard for an equalising goal now, Cabaye just had a shot at goal from long range but it went high and wide of the goal. Swansea need to tighten up their defence to try and keep the visitors out.
J. McArthur
Assist
Crystal Palace
75' McArthur with the assist for Tomkins goal, this is going to be a tense ending.
J. Tomkins
Goal
Crystal Palace
75' IT'S 3-2. What a game we have on our hands! Tomkins has pulled one back for Palace with 15 minutes still left to play. The corner won by Benteke wasn't cleared by Swansea and after bouncing around the penalty area it finally falls to Tomkins, albiet off his knee and he didn't know much about it. But it's his goal and it's 3-2!
74' It's end to end here now. Benteke races beyond the Swans defence but Amat fights back to challenge the striker and put it out for a corner.

72' A lot of yellow card here at the Liberty Stadium, this time it is awarded to Swansea's Kyle Naughton.
L. Fer
Goal
Swansea City
68' GOAL SWANSEA! It's Fer again with the goal! Almost a replica of his first goal to give Swansea a 3-1 lead! A long ball is fired forward and the Palace defence just don't clear the ball and it eventually falls to Llorente, who then tees it up for Fer to poke the ball into the net once again.
M. Kelly
Yellow Card
Crystal Palace
68' Yellow card is awarded to Martin Kelly for another late foul.
J. Puncheon
Yellow Card

67' Plenty of yellow cards being dished out here, this time it is Puncheon who goes in the book.
L. Fer
Goal
Swansea City
66' SWANSEA TAKE THE LEAD! Fer taps the ball home for just a yard out. It all came from a corner which was superbly met by Llorente with his first touch of the game after coming into the pitch, he thought his header was in but Cabaye just about managed to keep it out by Fer was there to smash home the rebound! Swansea lead 2-1.
Llorente
W. Routledge
Swansea City
65' Wayne Routledge comes off to be replaced by Fernando Llorente, he could be the one to make a difference.
63' The Swans are missing a presence in the 18-yard box at the moment, despite the best efforts of Sigurdsson who keeps dropping deep to collect the ball.
60' Swansea continue to press and probe in the Palace half but with no clear-cut chances to note. They may look to their substitutes bench soon with Fernando Llorente surely someone who could come on and make the difference.
57' All the momentum is with Swansea right now. Once again it is Barrow threatening the Palace net, he is played through on goal with just the keeper to beat, but James Tomkins gets back and pulled off a superb sliding challenge just as Barrow was about to pull the trigger.
55' Palace manage to half clear the ball away but Swansea gather the ball back straight away and now they have another free-kick in a good position after a poor foul by Townsend, it will be Sigurdsson once again the man to whip the ball in. But it is straight at Hennessey and he comfortably gathers the ball.
A. Townsend
Yellow Card
Crystal Palace
54' Within minutes of coming onto the pitch, Townsend has picked up a yellow card for pulling Routledge's shirt and giving away a free-kick.
54' Kelly is still struggling to deal with the pace of Barrow. The Swans is trying to take him on at every opportunity and wins another Swansea corner.
A. Townsend
C. Wickham
Crystal Palace
52' Connor Wickham comes off on the stretcher with Andros Townsend replaces him, who has had a hand in three goals in his last three league games versus Swansea (two goals, one assist).
49' Break in play at the moment as Wickham is down for Palace and he looks to be in a lot of pain with a knee injury. Looks like he is coming off.
48' Sigurdsson is certainly a key player for Swansea and he has now had a hand in 38 Premier League goals (22 goals, 16 assists); 24 more than any other player for the club in this period. 
46' We're back underway!
The teams are back out and almost ready to get the second half underway here at the Liberty Stadium.
Palace took the led early on after a great piece of play by Zaha and finish past Fabianski, however Swansea rallied and a terrific free-kick by Sigurdsson gave them their equalising goal. Just moments later Palace hit the bar but the score finished 1-1 heading into the half-time break. This key game for both sides could go either way now.
HALF-TIME: SWANSEA 1-1 PALACE
45' + 3' That's the half-time whistle!
45' There will be a minimum of three minutes added on here...
44' Good end to the half by Swansea. Barrow is again doing well down the right side, this time he finds himself in a very good position just ten yards from goal after a great ball in form Cork, but he slices his shot well wide of the Palace goal. He should've done better.
W. Hennessey
Yellow Card
Crystal Palace
42' Hennessey goes into the book for time wasting. Alan Pardew is not happy with that decision at all!
40' What a game we have on our hands now! There is a great atmosphere now inside the Liberty Stadium and both sides look dangerous in attack.
38' PALACE HIT THE BAR! The visitors almost re-take the lead just moments after conceding, Cabaye rounds Fabianksi but is forced wide so crosses the ball back to Zaha whose header hits the crossbar, then the rebound almost falls to Wickham but he and Benteke get in the way of each other and Swansea just about manage to clear.
G. Sigurðsson
Goal
Swansea City
36' HE'S DONE IT! What a strike by Sigurdsson! A super free-kick fired into the top left-hand corner which left Hennessey with no chance. It was a poor free-kick for Puncheon to give away and Sigurdsson is always a threat when it comes to set pieces, and he has got his side back into the game with a fantastic strike.
36' Two consecutive corners for Swansea come to nothing but then Cork wins a free-kick right on the edge of the box after a foul by Puncheon, giving away a needless free-kick. This is a great opportunity for Swansea and it is Sigurdsson who is going to take it...
33' Swansea manager Bob Bradley is having a deep conversation with his coaching staff in the technical area at the moment, are they debating an early change?
31' This is better from Swansea, they are dominating the possession but are struggling to create any chances, with Palace easily dealing with any aerial balls that come their way.
28' CHANCE PALACE! Wickham comes very close to doubling the visitors lead but Fabianksi makes a terrific diving save to his right to deny him, after it looked like the Palace forwards header was creeping into the bottom corner of the goal.
J. Cork
Yellow Card
Swansea City
27' Another yellow card awarded to a Swansea player, this time to captain Jack Cork for another poor tackle.
25' Their is a nervous atmosphere here at the Liberty Stadium now, Swansea need to start really threatening the Palace goal if they are to get the crowd going again. However Palace still look the more dangerous side going forward.
W. Routledge
Yellow Card
Swansea City
22' The first yellow card of the game goes to Routledge after a late tackle on Cabaye.
C. Benteke
Assist
Crystal Palace
19' Benteke rose highest to easily beat the Swansea centre-backs in the air and nod the ball onto Zaha who then fired home the Palace goal.
W. Zaha
Goal
Crystal Palace
19' PALACE TAKE THE LEAD! It's Zaha with the goal. The Palace winger latched on to Benteke's flick on and then used his pace and power to beat Neil Taylor in the box and fired a low shot past Lukasz Fabianski into the back of the net.
18' First corner of the game for Swansea! The defenders have come forward but once again anything in the air is being cleared by the Palace defence. The visitors certainly have a big advantage when it comes to aerial battles.
16' Barrow once again causing problems down the right-hand side against Kelly, the Swansea man just has too much pace for the Palace defender to deal with, and the hosts are trying to exploit that.
14' CHANCE SWANSEA! First real opportunity of the game for the Swans and Sigurdsson should've done better with his effort at goal. It came through Barrow beating Kelly down the right and then he pulled the ball back to Sigurdsson in the box, but he couldn't get enough power behind his shot to really trouble Wayne Hennessey, who easily gathers.
13' Palace are just missing that final ball at present, they are enjoying possession in front of Swansea but are struggling to create any clear-cut chances.
11' Palace are slightly edging the game so far, they are coming out of tackles with the ball and look more dangerous going forward through the likes of Zaha, Puncheon and Benteke, however Swansea are well organised at the moment which is limiting these players.
9' STAT: Palace are on a five-game losing streak in the Premier League; they haven't lost six in a row in the competition since November 2013.
7' Now it's Swansea's turn to test the Palace goal. Modou Barrow earns a free-kick in a good position down the right after beating Martin Kelly, the free-kick is taken by Sigurdsson but Dann rises to meet it and clears the danger.
6' CHANCE PALACE! Great opportunity for Benteke to give the visitors the lead. Palace won a corner which was taken by Yohan Cabaye and met by Scott Dann, the ball then bounced around the Swansea box before it fell to Benteke just yards from goal, but he fires well over the bar from close range.
4' It looks like Gylfi Sigurdsson is once again playing as the main striker for Swansea today, whilst Palace are set up in a 4-4-2 formation with Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham both up front but Wilfried Zaha and Jason Puncheon are constantly charging down wings.
3' Swansea with the early possession, they will be eager to get the home fans on side here, after a poor start to the season which has led to supporters voicing their disappointment from the stands.
1' We're off! Palace get the game underway.
The teams are out and kick-off is almost upon us here at the Liberty Stadium...
Head-to-head: The three previous Premier League meetings between these sides at the Liberty Stadium have all ended in a 1-1 draw. The Swans are also unbeaten in their last five home league games with Palace, although four of those games have ended in draws.
Swansea were unlucky to just come away from Goodison Park with a point last weekend, when a Seamus Coleman goal late on made the score 1-1. However they need to start picking up victories if they are to avoid a relegation fight. Meanwhile, Palace have lost their last five Premier League games, which has seen the slip down the table, both teams will be eager to take away all three points today.

Prior to todays game, Townsend has had a hand in three goals in his last three league games against Swansea (two goals, one assist). Whilst Swansea are unchanged, with Gylfi Sigurdsson once again leading the line.
