A welcome moment of relief for Brendan Rodgers who has at last secured his first competitive win for the Reds since his appointment. His young, energetic and well disciplined side were probably worth more than a win by just one goal.
Rodgers made eleven changes from his team that faced Manchester United, as he knows he really has to start making an impact in the Premier League.
“We played with a young side and they showed a lot of character, especially to come back from 1-0 down and they did very well,” Sahin told the club’s official website.
“It was a good night for the club and I was happy to see the young players get their chance and show what they can do. I was impressed with Jack Robinson who did well at left-back but to be fair they all did very well.”
Sahin is extremely likely to get only his second Premier League start since joining the club, as Liverpool travel to Norwich this weekend.
