  • It's all over at the Liberty Stadium with Swansea cruising to a 4-0 win thanks to a flurry of second-half goals. Gus Poyet has been given a brutal introduction to life in the Premier League as his side remain rooted to the foot of the table.

  • Swansea are toying with the visitors now as Britton draws a foul from Colback. Swansea try to press for a fifth but Sunderland are able to clear after a loose touch from Vazquez.

  • There will be three minutes of stoppage time.

  • Gus Poyet strokes his chin on the Sunderland bench. This second-half has certainly given him plenty to think about and perhaps a real indicator of the task he faces.

  • There is absolutely nothing of any note to report with this game completely dead and buried. Sunderland knock the ball around their area and Swansea are happy to allow them to do so.

  • In the midst of Swansea's fourth goal, Pozuelo came on to replace Routledge.

  • Altidore heads wide when unmarked at the back-post after a deep cross from Celustka, he'll have been relieved to see the offside flag as he should have hit the target.

  • It would be harsh for that to go down as an own goal for Fletcher as he was looking in the other direction, but it clearly came off him last. Gus Poyet looks helpless on the Sunderland bench, his side have well and truly been put to the sword this second-half.

  • Jozy Altidore replaces Fletcher for Sunderland.

  • Swansea make it four! The resulting corner from de Guzman finds Chico Flores who stoops to head against the legs of Steven Fletcher and past Westwood. 4-0.

  • Westwood is forced to pull off another stunning save as he palms Michu's powerful header wide for a corner.

  • Cattermole draws a foul from Routledge before Borini's dipping volley can only find the arms of Vorm. Rare effort on target for the visitors.

  • Borini looks to work his side into a good position but he isn't blessed with an abundance of pace and the attack breaks down due to a lack of support.

  • Vazquez replaces Bony upfront to make his home league debut for Swansea.

  • Swansea are preparing a substitution with Getafe-loanee Alvaro Vazquez ready to come on.

  • Westwood does well to confidently come off his line to punch clear before de Guzman's cross lands on the roof of the net as he looks towards the back post.

  • Routledge does well to take the ball towards the byline, winning a corner off Roberge which de Guzman will take.

  • The tempo has really stepped down a notch now as Borini concedes a free-kick on the edge of the Sunderland box.

  • Swansea are enjoying a good spell of possession, they don't look like they'll be happy to settle for three either as they continue to press.

  • Cattermole fouls Michu inside the Sunderland half and concedes a free-kick. The midfielder looks very frustrated as he squares up to the Spaniard.
