We’ve Got Outstanding Players, We Like To Dominate The Ball – Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers reacts to Liverpool 4-0 Tottenham defeat..

Here’s a transcript of what the elated manager said, “To perform like we did from the first minute was immense. We are very confident with how we play. Tottenham have some outstanding players and I hope Tim gets time to put his ideas in place.

“We have won eight games in a row and we will enjoy that. It’s just about going back to work next week and we have a tough game against West Ham next.

“The dream is for our supporters, they want to win the title. It has been a long time but it’s not in my thinking. We just need to prepare and do well and if we do that, we will win games.”

Brendan Rodgers continued: “Today we answered the question about pressure. We like to dominate the ball and you saw that today, the movement, confidence and composure was good. We fight as at team to get the ball back and overall I was very proud of the team.

“We have played a number of systems this season, the last four games we played a diamond – today it was 4-3-3. We have got flexibility and that is what we are trying to develop and the players are comfortable with that.

“We were seventh last year so the expectancy wasn’t there at the start of the season. Now we are up there at the top of the league with that pressure. That is eight wins in a row and that takes some going at this level..

“We now just concentrate on the next game which is West Ham and that is what we will focus on. I think there will be points dropped by all the teams before the end of the season.”
