Rodgers: Swans deserved the win

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admitted former club Swansea fully deserved the 3-1 victory which ended his side's defence of the Capital One Cup.

The Reds were well off the pace in the first half and trailed to Chico Flores' 33rd-minute header. Even the introduction of Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard at the interval could not prevent Swansea scoring a second on the counter-attack through Nathan Dyer and although Suarez pulled one back quickly Jonathan de Guzman scored an added-time breakaway.

"I thought the best team won. We were too slow, there was no tempo in the first half," admitted Rodgers, who left Swansea to take over from Kenny Dalglish at Anfield in June. "It is disappointing. You can only hurt if you are the better team and I thought they were the better team."
