Liverpool currently boast their best playing squad of the entirety of Brendan Rodgers’ reign, according to the Reds boss.
“For the first two years we didn’t have the possibility to change the momentum of a game – this year we plainly do,” Rodgers told Sky Sports after the comeback defeat of Crystal Palace.
“It’s so important in the modern game to have a bench that can come on and affect the game. That happened, which was great.”
We spent over £100 million in the summer, with the majority of that money coming from the Luis Suarez sale to FC Barcelona, and it’s understandable that it took some time for the new signings to adapt to our playing style.
After a pretty indifferent start to the season, and a miserable November featuring one victory, one draw and four defeats, Rodgers and the players have turned Liverpool’s campaign around.
We’re unbeaten in nine games, having won seven of those matches, and are one of the most in-form sides in the top flight.
With tough fixtures on the horizon – our next four games are home and away ties against Besiktas in between games against Southampton and Manchester City – let’s hope the Reds’ renewed confidence is rewarded.
