Sturridge and Liverpool players react on Twitter to win, as Owen praises boss

Daniel Sturridge

How Liverpool players reacted on Twitter to their win over Swansea City.

Liverpool secured another Premier League win on Monday night as they kept the pressure up on Manchester United.

The Reds beat Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium 1-0, thanks to a Jordan Henderson goal, avoiding a potential banana-skin at the ground where United lost 2-1 last month.

The win also saw the club match a club record for consecutive clean sheets with six in a row away from home, the first time they have done so since 1972.

That achievement is testament to the success of the three man central defence and goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, who was heavily criticised earlier in the season, and led to him being dropped after the club's loss at Old Trafford earlier in the season.

Now his confidence looks to have been restored, and his comment via Twitter after the game, along with that of Daniel Sturridge displayed particular satisfaction with the victory.

Liverpool face United this weekend, and as a result of the win are just three points behind them. Former star Michael Owen hailed manager Brendan Rodgers for his approach in the second half which helped Liverpool earn the victory.

He wrote on his SportLobster page: "Another game that showed the importance of tactics. Rodgers matched Swansea's midfield diamond in the second half and that turned the tide."

Rodgers himself told the Liverpool club website he also felt the switch was instrumental. He said: "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.

"It's a great victory, it's a difficult place to come here and we're very happy."
