Rodgers: Liverpool not looking to play like Swansea

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is not looking to emulate the playing style of his former club Swansea. The Northern Irishman move to Anfield was secured on the back of Swansea's impressive displays of possession football during their maiden Premier League campaign, leading some to compare them to Spanish giants Barcelona.

He said: "Swansea play the Swansea way of playing. It is not that we want to play the way Swansea play.

"Liverpool have played good football for many, many years and we are just looking at a different way of working and the players have been terrific in their response.

"You see as each game goes by the method in our game is improving, but we are not looking to play like Swansea."
