Pascoe praises Liverpool performance

Liverpool assistant manager Colin PascoeLiverpool assistant manager Colin Pascoe was delighted with the performance of his side during their 3-0 win over QPR.

The Reds netted three times in the opening 30 minutes to move up to ninth in position in the Premier League, leaving their rivals rooted firmly to the foot of the division.

Pascoe, who was filling in for the ill Brendan Rodgers, celebrated his team’s display after the final whistle:

“All of the lads were magnificent. The chances we created were phenomenal. We could have had a couple more. Some of our play was exciting to watch and I’m sure our fans will be happy tonight.” He told Sky Sports.

“It was fantastic to watch, the way the lads passed the ball around and the weight of our chances.”

Pascoe went on to reveal that he had only found out that he’d be in charge earlier in the day:

“This morning he phoned me at eight o’clock,

“I wasn’t feeling very well myself this morning, but he’s worse than me.

“The way the medical team and the doctors tried to isolate the players and the staff, they’ve been fantastic.

“Hopefully they’ll have nipped it in the bud and not too many will be affected by it.”

However, there was some bad news for the stand-in manager as Jose Enrique suffered a hamstring injury:

“It looks as if he’s got a little tear.” He added.

“He was terrific today and he’s been a joy to watch in the last few months, so hopefully he’s not out for too long.”

Luis Suarez netted the opening two goals, with a Daniel Agger header completing the scoring on 28 minutes.
