Liverpool – The victory over Crystal Palace not only making Brendan Rodgers satisfied because desperate to win the FA Cup is maintained. But more than that it shows the quality of the results of the Liverpool squad depth.
Liverpool managed to get rid of the Palace in the fifth round after winning the game with a score of 2-1 at Selhurst Park. For Liverpool it was their first victory in the opponent’s headquarters since 1997.
Not an easy victory arguably remember Liverpool 0-1 in the first round, before scoring twice in the second half of Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana.
The victory can be achieved thanks to the ingenuity of Rodgers in substitution by pulling out Lazar Markovic who do not play effectively in the first half and was replaced Mario Balotelli, who was instrumental in the birth of Lallana goal.
After winning 2-1 Rodgers then instructed his team to play more defensively, by inserting defender Dejan Lovren replace Philippe Coutinho and replace Sturridge with Rickie Lambert.
Rodgers was satisfied not play because of massive spending in the transfer market last summer already reaping positive results, once at the beginning of the season had been criticized. Recognized by the Northern Ireland man, the Reds current squad is the most complete since he handles the team three years ago, which makes it easier to perform the change of tactics.
“In the first two years we did not have the possibility to change the momentum of the game – this season we were able to do that,” Rodgers said on Sky Sports.
“It is important in modern football as it is now, you can enter the reserve players and change the game. It happened where very satisfactory indeed,” he continued.
