Rodgers: Liverpool 'Thoroughly Deserved' Ninth Win in a Row

Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool resumed its place at the top of the English Premier League table with a hard-fought 2-1 win at West Ham United on Sunday. The win, the club’s ninth in a row, sets up a tense run-in for the Reds, who host both third-place Manchester City as well as second-place Chelsea in its final five games. Maximum points would give Liverpool its first top-flight English league title since 1990.

A pair of Steven Gerrard penalties either side of Guy Demel’s controversial equalizer just before halftime were sufficient to secure all three points for the Reds. "I thought we thoroughly deserved the win and we showed great character today,” Rodgers said after the game. “It was a brilliant win for us and keeps our run going. We were clearly the better team. West Ham had one shot on target, which was the goal."

Looking ahead to next weekend’s clash against City at Anfield, Rodgers said: "It's going to be a great game. It is going to be a magnificent atmosphere at Anfield. The supporters really urged us on today and we want to see if we can get 10 in a row." When asked if either his team or Manuel Pellegrini’s men would be under the most pressure, the Liverpool boss said: "The mentality is to be fearless, it doesn't matter who we play. We have to respect them because they've got world-class players, but it's about ourselves and the confidence we have to play.”
