Brendan Rodgers: I have to take my hat off to players


Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was full of praise for his players after the 2-1 win over Manchester City at Anfield.

The Reds were impressive from the start with Jordan Henderson giving his side the lead with a brilliant curling effort.

Edin Dzeko restored parity minutes later, taking advantage of sluggish Liverpool defending.

But Philippe Coutinho's piece of magic saw the Reds take all three points and continue their fight for a top four finish.

"I have to take my hat off to players," Rodgers told Sky Sports.

"To get back at half four in the early hours of Friday morning - by the time they got to bed it was six, and they had to sleep all of Friday.

"We then did some light work yesterday, but to come out and play like they did, they were relentless.

"They restricted a top team to just one shot on target and deserve all the praise they will get.

"The character of this team was questioned at the beginning of this season, but we were just trying to find a rhythm and balance to the team, with little time and lots of new players.

"It hasn't just happened; they have worked hard, and believed in how they were working."
