Rodgers comments explain why Liverpool are becoming difficult to play against

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has praised his side after they changed their system during the game against Swansea.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has praised his side’s ability to adapt and change via the club’s website.

Rodgers was pleased with the changes he saw and the response from his team in the win last night against Swansea, which allowed the Reds to reorganise and find different ways to attack Garry Monk’s side.

“Any system you play in the game doesn't work unless you have that ability to work, and we just weren't anywhere near it in the first half. But that resilience and character kept us in the game,” said Rodgers.

“We knew we were going to be better in the second half, we changed the structure of the team a little bit and then I thought in the second half we really dominated the game.”

Liverpool’s form since the turn of the year has been fantastic and the side is now flying at the right time of the season in the race for the top four.

The team can even set their sights on a repeat of last season, which would mean finishing as the runners up in the Premier League, something that a lot of fans would have taken during the first half of the campaign.

Rodgers has shown his intelligence and effectiveness in terms of finding a way to keep his team effective during a difficult period where sides started to counter the way they played.

His comments show an ability from Liverpool to reinvent themselves in games where teams are countering their pre-match plans and that makes them difficult and unpredictable to play against.

It makes them virtually impossible to account for and is the reason that they are being considered a favourite by several to secure Champions League football for next season.
