Players Gave Supporters Something To Cheer About


Liverpool beat Aston Villa 3-2 at Anfield yesterday in what was a much needed win for manager Brendan Rodgers. The Reds’ boss has been under immense pressure in recent weeks and the win gives Rodgers some welcome relief.

Milner’s early goal inside the first minute was the catalyst to the win and gave Liverpool the perfect platform to ultimately win the game. The goal settled the Reds down and they dominated the whole of the first half on possession without creating too much in the way of chances as the visitors sat deep in a defensive shell.

Liverpool knocked the ball around confidently and pressed to get the ball back when they lost possession.

The second half was more creative with Liverpool creating more chances as they passed the ball quicker and their play encouraged the crowd to cheer them on in what was much better atmosphere at Anfield than recent weeks.

Daniel Sturridge will get all the headlines for his two stunning goals but Luca Leiva was instrumental in the win with his commanding performance in the middle of the park, the Brazilian covered every blade of grass and broke up so many Villa attacks with his superb positional play and sense of danger combined with his desire to get on the ball as he made himself ability for a pass and rarely lost possession.

Milner had one of his best games in a red shirt highlighted by his superb early goal, his workrate is never in question but his quality has been, but yesterday he produced moments of magic, like his pass for Sturridge’s first goal.

Moreno had another good performance down the left flank and Clyne offered more of an attacking threat down the right side by providing some teasing crosses to attack.

But the most encouraging factor about the win was the players’ desire and hunger that has been lacking this season. The players chased and harried the Villa players for 90 minutes and the Anfield crowd responded with encouragement and singing.

This is the best atmosphere there has been at Anfield so far this season and it was all because the supporters had something to cheer about by the effort shown from their team.

    It would have been 3-0 if Rodgers had had the sense to drop the dreadful Mignolet. That second goal was atrocious. He simply stood rooted to the spot as the ball went past him! Rodgers learns nothing it seems.

    Coutinho’s efforts in defense were appreciated by the Kop as well and Ings as usual played very well.
