“Brendan Rodgers did an amazing job since he arrived, but at this moment he is in a little bit of trouble with injuries. I know what it is because I had similar problems at the other end.

“He is trying to compensate for the people he lost, so we knew that in transition we could win the game. We tried to be very fast after recovering the ball.

“We did that very well in the first half, and in the second half, it was about being compact and getting the result.

“You always need your goalkeeper to make a couple of important saves which he did, but we were phenomenal. They had a lot of corners, and we defended well. I felt very comfortable in the game.”
