Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists that today's 3-0 win over Wigan Athletic was about more than just Luis Suarez.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed the team spirit at Anfield following today's 3-0 home win over Wigan Athletic.

Luis Suarez was named man of the match as he netted his 12th and 13th goals of the season.

However, while Rodgers was delighted with Suarez, he was keen to stress that the result was down to more than just the Uruguayan's performance.

"I think there are superlatives for the team today. I thought the team was outstanding, in particular the second half," said Rodgers. "Luis took his goals very well, his movement again was outstanding, but today was very much about the team.

"The ethos and the spirit of the team, the pressure that we applied as a team, was very strong. Today was a result for everyone and I was delighted with that performance."

Prior to today, Liverpool had failed to beat Wigan in their last five attempts.
