Rodgers impressed by Liverpool’s character

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has praised his side’s ‘character’ and ‘winning mentality’, after they managed to hold on to a 2-1 victory against struggling Sunderland, reports the Daily Telegraph.

As Sunderland defended deeply, Liverpool initially found it difficult to make a breakthrough at Anfield on Wednesday, but were relieved when Steven Gerrard fired home a free-kick eight minutes before half time.


Daniel Sturridge made it two with a deflected shot early in the second half, but Sunderland rallied in the closing stages and threatened an equaliser once Ki Sung-Yueng had headed home from close range after Liverpool had failed to deal with a corner.


The Reds held on, however, and the result ensured that they moved to within only a point of leaders Chelsea with just seven games to go this season. Afterwards, Rodgers claimed that this win was more pleasing than some of the more comprehensive victories the team has had at home.


He said: “It is more satisfying. The perception is that we are going to get four, five and six goals each game which is wonderful. We knew this was a game where we had to be patient.


"Seven wins on the spin in the Premier League is a huge credit to the players. We were the dominant team but no matter how dominant you are when it gets to 2-1 it is going to be tight for that last 10 minutes.


“It shows the character of the team that we stayed with it and showed that winning mentality and finished with another great victory.”
