  1. Thanks for all your comments today folks! Don't forget, you can always follow me on Twitter: @RazMirza to send me your views so speak to you all soon!

  2. FULL-TIME: What a start to the new year as the points are shared at the Liberty Stadium. Wayne Routledge opened the scoring for Swansea, but Villa hit back thanks to goals from their frontmen. Andreas Weimann restored parity a minute before half-time and then Christian Benteke thought he had won the game with an 84th minute penalty. But the Swans stole a point in the fourth minute of stoppage time with Danny Graham firing his shot through a crowd of players and past Brad Guzan.

  3. Unbelieveable finish to this game as Villa block crosses and shots before the ball bounces up kindly to Graham at the second attempt and he fires his fierce right-foot shot through a crowd of players and past Brad Guzan into the back of the net. Paul Lambert holds his head in his hands in disbelief.

  4. 90+4


  5. 90+3

    The ball is too long for Michu as it frifts out of play for a goal kick. Paul Lambert is walking around the touchline looking at his watch!

  6. 90+1

    We're into five additional minutes at the end of this match as Chico Flores claims Christian Benteke has taken a swipe at his face with an elbow.

  7. 90

    Mark Halsey calls across Lowton and Michu, but it was defintely Herd who grabbed the striker.

  8. 89

    The visitors are really digging in now. They're a side that have grown in confidence in this match as Chris Herd grabs Michu around the neck!

  9. 88

    Villa play a bit of keep ball with the visiting fans enjoying what they've seen in this second half.

  10. 87

    I have to mention just before that goal that Benteke saw his header cleared off the line and the Swans have made more clearances off the line than any other side this season - 8 now!

  11. 86

    SUBSTITUTION: Jordan Bowery replaces Marc Albrighton as Villa make an immediate change.

  12. 84

    Benteke sends Michel Vorm the wrong way and Villa are ahead at the Liberty Stadium!


  14. 83

    PENALTY GIVEN!!! Nathan Dyer brings down Andreas Weimann and Mark Halsey points to the spot.

  15. 82

    Swansea dominated the first-half, but Villa have come back well in this second period with Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke causing the hosts plenty of problems. The Belgian striker wins his side a corner.

  16. 81

    SUBSTITUTION: Yet another injury for Villa as Westwood is replaced by Barry Bannan.

  17. 80

    Swansea decide not to hand the ball back to Villa and Guzan makes a fine stop from the angle. Ashley Westwood is off the field and hobbling down the tunnel.

  18. 78

    SUBSTITUTION: Kemy Agustien replaces Leon Britton as Swansea make their final change.

  19. 77

    Danny Graham's cross from the right finds Michu, as Ashley Westwood falls over under his challenge and is in need of some medical attention.
