Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has praised his players for securing a 2-1 win against Manchester City despite having their preparations hampered by the journey back from Besiktas.
Following their Europa League defeat to the Turkish giants on Thursday night, the Reds did not touch down on English soil until approximately 4am on Friday morning.
Rodgers told BBC Sport after the game: "I have to take my hat off to players. By the time they got to bed it was six, and they had to sleep all of Friday.
"We then did some light work yesterday, but to come out and play like they did, they were relentless. They restricted a top team to just one shot on target and deserve all the praise they will get."
Liverpool currently sit fifth in the Premier League table and are unbeaten in 11 top-flight games.
