Rodgers buoyed by Liverpool improvement

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was in a very positive frame of mind after he saw his side beat Swansea City 4-3 at Anfield on Sunday.

Braces from Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson allowed the Reds to extend their unbeaten streak to eight matches in the Premier League which has them sitting fourth on the table, four points behind leaders Chelsea.

Although the victory over Swansea was not a perfect performance, Rodgers was thrilled with how much his side has improved since he took the reins in June 2012.

"As a team, we're improving all the time," he told Sky Sports.

"We've still got a way to go to where I want us to be, but we've seen progression over the last 18 months or so and we need to stay focused on getting better and improving our performance now."

Rodgers added: "Ultimately I always think the consequence of performing well consistently is good results.

"This season shows that, I think. When we play well more times than not we get the win.

"Today we were not quite at our best but we scored four goals and won the game. It was a very, very important performance for us."
