The defender headed in his first goal for the club from a corner after 34 minutes following a spell of pressure from the visitors.

Both sides struggled to create any meaningful opportunities in the opening 20 minutes until Stewart Downing fired wide from 20 yards.

Swansea then began to enjoy the better of the possession and could have taken the lead on 30 minutes.

Jonathan de Guzman was fed through by Nathan Dyer following a quick break, but the midfielder overhit his clever chip when through on goal.

However, it mattered little as Flores headed in minutes later to put the Swans in front.

Liverpool almost grabbed an instant equaliser, but Joe Cole nodded over from Oussama Assaidi's cross.
