Win Over West Brom Shows How Far We’ve Come Believes Liverpool Manager Brendan Rodgers


Thursday, 27th September, 2012



Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed the club’s 2-1 victory over West Brom in the League Cup last night as showing the progress that is being made at Anfield.

Rodgers’ side are without a win from their first five league games, the club’s worst start to a season for over 100 years, but the Northern Irishman has consistently struck a positive note over the team’s performances.

At the Hawthornes, Rodgers chose to make a number of changes to his side, packing it full of young players with just a few experienced heads.



Liverpool fell behind early on in the game when West Brom defender Gabriel Tamas opened the scoring after just three minutes, capitalising on a Brad Jones fumble.

The Reds hit back though, when one of the side’s more experienced heads, Nuri Sahin, saw his shot go underneath goalkeeper Ben Foster in the 17th minute.

Sahin then secured the victory for Liverpool late in the game, when in the 82nd minute, winger Oussama Assaidi crossed for the Turkey star to tap the ball home.


For Rodgers, it was a relief to see his side come through a tricky test and progress in a competition Liverpool are the holders of, after Kenny Dalglish steered them to League Cup success last season.

"I think it was a symbolic night because it shows how fast we are moving as a group", Rodgers told his club’s official website.

"How we have progressed from our first day of the season here, when we were a wee bit disjointed and players did perhaps not quite understand my methods and what I wanted.

"But the performance level has been high for a number of weeks. I think it’s always exciting to see young players who have great technique.

"But what is important as well is that they understand how to fight. It was a wonderful performance against a good team."


Rodgers will next have to face his old club Swansea in the League Cup, after Liverpool were drawn to host the Welsh side in the fourth round.

The Northern Irishman looks set to continue with his policy of playing up and coming youngsters in the tournament, after being happy with what he saw against West Brom.
