Anfield atmosphere at it’s best yet for Brendan Rodgers

The atmosphere inside Anfield for Sunday’s 4-0 victory over Tottenham was the best yet for Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.


The Reds swept aside hapless Spurs thanks to an early Younes Kaboul own goal, Luis Suarez strike, Philippe Coutinho effort and Jordan Henderson free-kick.

It was a result that puts Liverpool top of the Premier League with six games of the season to go. The title is in their hands, with Manchester City to come to Anfield on Sunday, April 13th.

From a bellowing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ to roars upon and after the final whistle, Anfield was buzzing on Sunday afternoon.

The Kop was lit up by flags and banners and the singing around the ground didn’t stop all game. There’s a sense of unity and belief in Liverpool FC right now, and it resonates to the players and manager.

Speaking to the press after the game, with quotes picked up by the club’s official website, Rodgers said, “We love playing at Anfield.

“The support today was incredible and that’s only going to intensify as the season goes on. You can see it works for us, rather than against us.

“That’s as good as I’ve heard Anfield since I’ve been a manager here. The two forces [fans and players] together made us a real tough opponent today.”

It was another wonderful day for Liverpool, taking advantage of points dropped for both Chelsea and Man City on Saturday. The Reds have now scored 88 goals this season, and won eight games on the bounce.

Rodgers said of his side’s performance against Tim Sherwood’s men, “We had real dominance in the game right from the first whistle. I thought it was an exceptional performance. It was an outstanding team performance and I thought the supporters were brilliant today.

“Everything we’ve been working towards over this last year-and-a-half, in terms of without the ball; that hunger and intensity to get the ball back, from the first whistle to the end [was there].

“Then our dominance in possession was very impressive. We had long spells with the ball trying to tire Tottenham out, open up the space and then we’ve got the penetration at the top of the field.”

Next up is a trip to West Ham on Sunday, April 6th at 4pm.
