Rodgers: We Were Outstanding
Brendan Rodgers was delighted with his side's 'outstanding' performance in today's 1-0 home win against Burnley.
Scott Sinclair scored the winning goal early on in the first half and the Swans showed a superb display of attacking football as well as good defending to hold onto the 1-0 win.
Rodgers told the Official Site:
'I thought we were outstanding, particularly in the first-half, when we were free flowing and very, very good,'
'Obviously when you only get the one goal it leaves it a little bit hairy at the end.
'And for that persistence, which I spoke about in the week, against a fantastic team in Burnley who are going to be right up there, it was a fantastic three points.'
I thought that both sendings off were very, very harsh,' he added.
'Everyone knows that Darren is a really honest player and he wouldn't have gone down unless he really had to.
'I haven't seen it again, but I thought it was a penalty, so for him to get booked then for that to cost him a red card… it's very, very disappointing.
'I also thought the second red card was harsh on Mears - it wasn't that sort of game.'
