Premier League day 7 – Liverpool 2-1 West Bromwich
Coach Rodgers reacts:
“Performance-wise we’ve still got a way to go. The speed of our game, the movement and the intensity in our game still needs developing and improving.
“But I’d rather have that now and then do what we’ve done over the last two seasons – get better and better as the season goes on. But whilst you’re searching for that, it’s important you find a way to win.
“There’s a lot of young players here and new players who have come in who are still finding out about working at a big club.
“What you have to do is find a way to win and today we did that. That was against a team who came to here with big confidence having won 4-0 comfortably last week and winning 1-0 in their last away game at Tottenham.
“This group are very honest and these players are full of character. That’s what gives me hope as a manager – even though we’re in a moment where we’re not at our footballing best yet, but I know the character and depth of honesty in this team. As we work more together, the quality in our game and the performance will improve.”
