Brendan Rodgers was a very happy man after Liverpool beat Swansea City 5-0, in what he described as an outstanding performance.
The Reds had lost their last two games against West Brom and Zenit St Petersburg 2-0, in the Premier League and the Europa League respectively.
He said: “For us it was a very important win and an outstanding performance. I think we really showed our character and mental toughness today to get our performance like that.”
As well as a clean sheet, the former Swansea boss was also buoyed by a debut goal for January signing Philippe Coutinho.
“The Premier League is very important to us. We had to focus and show great commitment today against a Swansea team that has been brilliant.’ he added.
“We’ve had a bumpy road this week. The last four games defensively we haven’t been at our best.”
