Brendan Rodgers hails "remarkable performance"

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says that his side put in a "remarkable performance" during their 3-2 win over Manchester City in the Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers has said that Liverpool put in a "remarkable performance" to beat Manchester City in the Premier League this afternoon.

The visitors fought back from 2-0 down at Anfield before Philippe Coutinho sealed the win for Liverpool with a strike inside the final 15 minutes.

The manager told reporters: "It was a remarkable performance. I thought we were incredible today. We showed so much spirit and quality. Credit to Manchester City. We were outstanding in that first half but you expect a team like City to come back for 15 or 20 minutes.

"It's always emotive, especially around this time. We live with Hillsborough every day. The families and the victims are in our thoughts every day. It was an inspiration for us, rather than something that held us back.

"The expectation on this football club is a challenge every day. Our objective is to stay where we are. We have been put under pressure in very big game but you can see from the quality of our football that we are coping with it."

The result moved Liverpool five points clear of Chelsea at the top of the table ahead of the Stamford Bridge side's match against Swansea City this afternoon.
