Liverpool recorded their fourth Premier League win of the season at QPR on Sunday, in some of the most dramatic circumstances in Premier League history.
The Reds managed a 3-2 victory, having exchanged four goals over the final seven minutes of the match with Harry Redknapp’s side, who helped Brendan Rodgers men to three points with two own goals.
The win moved Liverpool up to fifth in the Premier League table ahead of Wednesday nights Champions League clash with Real Madrid, but the performance left plenty to be desired.
Brendan Rodgers said as much in his post match reaction, admitting his side were very fortunate to escape west London with three points.
“They certainly didn’t deserve to lose, QPR. We were very, very lucky to get the win,” he said.
“We showed tremendous character and were a little bit better in the second half, but QPR definitely deserved something.”
He added: “We put players on to play a game, which is a technical game. The first half, we didn’t pass the ball, we had no rhythm in our game, movement was too slow, no speed in the game.
“Overall we were fortunate, but it’s a long season and you’re going to not play well in games. You hope to get points and today we got three points, but QPR were unfortunate.”
