Liverpool boss Rodgers happy to win without Suarez

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was pleased with victory at West Ham United without Luis Suarez.

Rodgers said there was never any panic from within the club when Suarez was booked for the fifth time last weekend, ruling him out of the game at West Ham.

"For us there was no drama," he said.

"My focus when I came in was about the collective. We must share the ball, we must share the goals and we must share the workload - we are not asking anyone to do anything more than anyone else.

"I had great belief in the players that we could score goals and create goals because we have done it all season but we just haven't been clinical enough and had the good fortune at times to wrack up more goals.

"But I think you have seen today, even without Luis, the quality in the team but equally the fight in the team and that was pleasing."
