Swans off the mark
Swansea ended their goal drought in style as they claimed a first Premier League win at the Liberty Stadium with a 3-0 triumph over West Brom.
Scott Sinclair ended the hosts 374-minute wait for a top flight goal as he coolly slotted home a 14th minute penalty.
Leroy Lita nodded home his first for the club 10 minutes later before Nathan Dyer secured the points shortly after the break as Brendan Rodgers' side also kept a third straight clean sheet at home.
There was a minute's silence prior to kick-off in memory of the four miners who lost their lives at Gleision Colliery, as well as Rodgers' father Malachy who died a week ago, but it was cut short as a handful of away fans failed to observe it.
Swansea dominated the early proceedings and got their reward in the 14th minute as Paul Scharner's clumsy tackle led to a penalty that Sinclair slotted to Ben Foster's left for the south Wales club's first Premier League goal.
And the second soon followed, as Sinclair's header across goal was turned in by Lita at the far post.
West Brom responded, and Shane Long forced an athletic save from Michel Vorm before two blocks from Ashley Williams denied Youssouf Mulumbu a sight of goal.
Swansea extended their lead four minutes into the second half when Dyer raced onto a Lita flick-on and held off Nicky Shorey before firing between Foster's legs.
Chris Brunt thought he had pulled a goal back on the hour but his header from Jonas Olsson's ball into the box was ruled out for offside.
Peter Odemwingie went in the book after clattering Neil Taylor in an aerial challenge that left the full-back needing prolonged treatment before departing on a stretcher with a head wound. Nine minutes were added as a result but the hosts saw them out for an historic win.
