Rodgers: We Thoroughly Deserved The Win

Brendan Rodgers said his side thoroughly deserved the win tonight as his Swansea City side beat his former club Watford 3-2 at Vicarage Road.

Scott Sinclair's brace and Frank Nouble's goal helped us storm into a 3-0 lead but we managed to survive a late scare as the home side looked to get back into the game. They even had a goal disallowed in injury time for offside.

Rodgers said:

'I thought for 75 minutes we were outstanding. We were very good going forward, solid as a group and then obviously once Watford get the goal with 15 minutes to go you're asked different questions,'

'But I thought we stood up to that very, very well.

'Of course, you've got to defend that many balls into the box and that many bodies in and around the box, it becomes a war and a battle, but we stood up to it and got the points which I thought was thoroughly deserved.'

'The supporters were fine,'

'The guys will tell you here I had a real close relationship with people - the media, the players, the people - so I understand the frustration,'

'It obviously wasn't as bad as it was maybe hyped up to be but that's your job, but I've only got the greatest respect for them and this wasn't any more special for me coming here to win against Watford because I've got a big affinity for this club and always will do.'
