No joy for Rodgers as Swans hold Liverpool

LONDON (Reuters) - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was unable to get one over his former side Swansea City on his return to Wales on Sunday as the Anfield side continued their mediocre Premier League start with a 0-0 draw at the Liberty Stadium.

Liverpool, anchored in mid-table with just three league wins from 13 games, created the better openings in a lively encounter.

Teenage winger Raheem Sterling rattled the crossbar with a rasping volley on 33 minutes and 60 seconds later, the visitors had a goal disallowed when Luis Enrique, who slid in to turn home Luis Suarez's cross, was denied by the offside flag.

Swansea, who appointed Dane Michael Laudrup to succeed Rodgers after he left in June, moved up to eighth on 17 points.
