Rodgers Eyes More Great Wins After Man City Scalp

Rodgers Eyes More Great Wins After Man City Scalp

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers eyes more 'great wins' after Sunday's superb victory against Manchester City.

The Swans boss was obviously delighted to witness such an impressive display to beat and knock Manchester City off the top of the Premier League table.

The three points put his side up to mid-table, level on points with 10th placed Fulham, and puts us a big step closer to securing safety from relegation.

Rodgers said:

'You have to remember who we were playing against,'

'We were playing a team that is littered with world-class players and has an excellent manager.

'They are a club who are going to be challenging for major honours over a number of years, not only in the Barclays Premier League but throughout European football.

'We played a great possession game, we were very well organised in our defending and our counter-attacking football was exceptional when it was needed.

'So across the board it was a well-deserved win and it is another notch of belief and confidence for the players in what has been a really fantastic year for them so far.

'It was a real prestigious win for us last weekend and as you can imagine the confidence of the players has increased.

'It was a brilliant performance and obviously it was a great result.

'It has left all the supporters and the city on a real high so it was a great win and we need to continue making good wins.'


Rodgers says there's still no targets, just to avoid finishing in the bottom three, he added:

'We have not set any targets,'

'The aim does not change and that was to make sure we stay in the league.

'It was well documented that we were one of the favourites with nearly everyone to go down so we're not going to get too carried away.

'We've still got a lot of work to do, there are 10 games left so there are 30 points up for grabs.

'We just want to go into the next game and look to put on another very good performance.'


Some of Rodgers' players have said the aim should now be top 10, and the Swans boss says that would be an incredible achievement:

'It would be an incredible achievement for the players in their first season at this level,'

'It is an incredibly tough league and the clubs that surround us are absolutely massive at this level.

'They are clubs that have been around it for many years but, like I say, we just want to finish it the very best that we can and let's see where that takes us.

'I remember last year you could be in eighth or ninth position, and the last game of the season you might end up in 14th because it was all so very tight.

'But for us, it is just to really attack the games, to keep improving and let's see where it takes us.'
