Adam Lallana’s double inspired Liverpool to a 4-1 win over Swansea City and the Anfield boss has hailed his side’s ‘dominant’ display
Brendan Rodgers believes Liverpool are starting to show signs of getting back to their attacking best following Monday’s 4-1 win over Swansea City.
Liverpool have struggled to reach the heights of last season’s title challenge following the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona and Daniel Sturridge’s injury problems.
But last season’s runners-up were able to end the year on a high as Adam Lallana’s double, along with Alberto Moreno’s strike and Jonjo Shelvey’s own goal, sealed a 4-1 victory for Brendan Rodgers’ men at Anfield.
“For me it was about getting back to performing well and getting ideas that will help the players play how we want to play,” the Liverpool boss told BBC Sport.
“We were convincing. We have to keep that intensity and work-rate. It was a great performance against a very good side.
“I felt for the big part of the game we dominated. We gave away a poor goal and it goes to 2-1 and they almost score again straight after so that is a frustration.
“But, apart from that spell, the work-rate was outstanding and we were really exciting going forward.”
Liverpool leapfrogged Swansea into eighth following Monday’s win and Rodgers is excited by the prospect of seeing his side flourish in 2015.
He added: “We know the work we need to put in but the players are starting to work together.
“We are a young side looking to settle in and play a type of football we find creative and exciting.”
