Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers pleased with Reds' resilience

Rodgers salutes 'brilliant win'

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says his team have shown they have the character to maintain their push for a Champions League place.

The Reds tightened their grip on fourth spot in the Premier League with a 4-3 win over Swansea at Anfield on Sunday.

"We know we can score goals and if we're not having one of our better days we have the character and resilience to keep fighting," Rodgers said.

"The strong part of our game came through."

He continued: "Our offensive game is very aggressive and we've got goals in the team but we're disappointed with the goals we conceded."

Liverpool have taken 17 points from a possible 21 since their 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on 29 December, and they are only four points behind Jose Mourinho's Premier League leaders, who have still to visit Anfield.

But Rodgers remains cautious about his team's title prospects.

"We're just focusing on winning games and no-one's really talking about us for the title," he said. "Everything's about Chelsea, [Manchester] City and Arsenal. We'll continue trying to improve.

"We've been outstanding this season but we've still got 11 games to go and there's a lot of work to do."
