Rodgers ‘delighted’ with Tottenham win

Brendan Rodgers was ‘delighted’ with Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Tottenham at White Hart Lane, reports Sky Sports.

The Reds ran out comfortable winners at White Hart Lane, thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling, Steven Gerrard and Alberto Moreno.

When asked to pick out the most pleasing aspect of the team’s performance, Rodgers said: “I think that everything that could be good in our game, was there. 

“Our organisation defensively was very strong, we played the diamond for the first hour and were a threat in between the lines in midfield, and obviously the two boys up front were fantastic.

“Our quality was exceptional. We got three goals and could maybe have had more. Defensively we were resolute, kept the lines tight together to minimise their chances, and closed the game out very well, so all round it was a great three points for us.”

Rodgers was most pleased with the clean sheet, having watched his team bounce back from a 3-1 defeat to Manchester City last Monday.

He said: “We talked about it a lot in pre-season, and for us it’s about concentration.

“I thought the back four and goalkeeper were excellent, and we created protection in front of them with our diamond and the two guys up front worked their socks off.

“Today was very much a great symbol of what we are, which is a very good team.”

Rodgers added: “It is two wins out of three so it is a good start. Today we showed out quality and out intensity.”
