Rodgers: We are on a roll
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that things are finally starting to click for his side now as they have hit a great run of form.
The ex-Swansea City boss praised the great attitude of the players and told Sky Sports “They are getting the rewards. It’s going how I thought it would go, which would be improvement as the players became accustomed to how we work.”
Rodgers feels that his side is now gaining momentum after two emphatic victories over Swansea, 5-0, and Wigan Athletic, 4-0, in their last two Premier League matches. The Northern Ireland born boss added “the tipping point is that it’s going more for us now than against us.”
Liverpool can go within seven points of a Champions League place if they beat Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield this weekend.
Rodgers emphasised how strong their current form is by adding, “We’ve played 28 games and, after 14 games, we were 12th in the league. If you take the points from the following 14, we’d be third.”
The Reds boss has been impressed with his goalkeeper and his centre forward in particular over the last couple of weeks, praising the attitude and the performances of Pepe Reina and Luis Suarez in recent press conferences.
Not surprisingly as Liverpool’s last five wins have all been achieved by keeping a clean sheet and by margins of three goals or more.
However, Tottenham haven’t failed to score in any of their last six Premier League games. Spurs also haven’t been beaten in the league since 9th December, when they last travelled to Merseyside and were beaten by Everton.
