Rodgers suggests the quality which is going to be key for Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers has praised the confidence of his team and the focus they showed in the second half against Swansea.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers suggested to the club’s website what he feels is the impressive quality in his side at the moment.

The boss has suggested that the focus his team showed in the victory against Swansea earlier this week will give them a great chance of maintaining their impressive run of form over the rest of the season.

Liverpool weren’t at their best in the first-half against the Swans, but found a way to register the win and to get over the line securing an important three points.

“We've put ourselves in a really good position now with nine games to go; the consistency and confidence of the team is really high,” said the boss.

“We have got the focus to come out in the second half and work well. We got a great victory.”

Credit goes to the manager for finding a way to change things and credit goes to the players for having the intelligence to adjust during the game when they realised the pre-match game plan wasn’t working.

Liverpool’s main aim for next season is getting back into the Champions League.

The side will feel as though they have a point to prove in Europe after failing to make it out of the group stages this season, which was extremely disappointing for the club.

They have a great chance to take control over that aim this weekend when they face arch rivals Manchester United, who they will leapfrog if they register the three points.

If Liverpool retain the focus that Rodgers mentions and continue to show an ability to adapt to varying conditions and tactics in games, there’s no reason they won’t finish at least fourth.
