Cardiff 3-6 Liverpool

Rodgers hails his players:

On Luis Suarez…

“He’s a remarkable player. His determination and his desire is at such a high level. He gets his rewards.

“For his first goal, he made a run in behind and he didn’t receive the ball. He played himself back onside and after that little spell of possession, we get in behind their defence. It’s a great cross by Glen Johnson and he’s there to finish. If he doesn’t, Daniel Sturridge finishes.

“He’s a world-class player, who is enjoying his football and long may it continue. “Luis takes it down and Daniel has run 70 metres to get into the box. It just shows you the desire of the team. His back-heel to create Luis’ goal was sensational. That’s what we’ve got in the team – footballers and technicians that can open up the game for us, we can control the ball. We had large spells of possession which frustrated Cardiff.”

“We showed great resilience today, mentally, and again showed our offensive power. We all stayed very focused and composed.

“It was an outstanding result for us. Some elements of our game were very good today, against a newly-promoted team, which are always difficult to play against.”

I’ve got to say I’m really looking forward to the Sunderland game. It feels like we haven’t played at home for ages. We had three games away on the spin and it was our fourth away win [in the league this year].

“Wednesday will be a great night for us. We’ve now got five games left at Anfield, with three away from home. Anfield is a special place to play football. So for us, it’s about the immediate future.
