Liverpool Shows Both Sides in Thrilling Win

MOST COMMENTED

Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers conceded that his team was at its best and worst on Sunday, as the Reds consolidated its claim on the fourth and final UEFA Champions League place with a thrilling 4-3 win against Swansea City at Anfield. While Rodgers accepts that Liverpool must learn to be tighter in defense, he pledged not to curb the team’s free-flowing attacking style, either.

"I worry always to play good football,” Rodgers said. “I'm not totally satisfied with always grinding out results. Up to now we've got away with it. But at times we concede poor goals -- it is mistakes or decision-making that's costing us.” Nevertheless, "It was an important win for us," he added. "We certainly weren't at our best today but the offensive part of our game, which is very strong, came out on top again. Swansea played really, really well. Especially when we were 2-0 up to get back into the game.”

With another stunning brace, Daniel Sturridge became the first Premier League player to find the net in eight consecutive games since Ruud van Nistelrooy for Manchester United. In a separate interview, Jordan Henderson, who scored Liverpool’s other two goals, reflected that his 74th minute winner was the most important goal of his career so far.
