Two goals from Andre Ayew against Liverpool on Sunday at the Liberty Stadium earned him a man of the match award.
Swansea had not won two previous games and needed a point from this game to stay away from the relegation zone.
Liverpool rested some key players as they prepare for the return encounter of their Europa semi final encounter against Villareal on Thursday at Anfield.
However, Swansea had other ideas as they fired three past Liverpool with a 20 minute header from Ayew before Jack Cork made it two to end the first half.
