Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says his side were worthy winners against Liverpool today.
The Irishman also said that it was a great way to finish off a 'brilliant' season, having finished 11th in the Premier League.
Danny Graham won the game for the Swans in the final 5 minutes, as he fired home from 12 yards after a cross from the right.
'It has been a fairytale and what an end to the season,'
'The players did brilliantly, their pressing and work-rate was phenomenal.
'Everyone associates us with our passing, movement and creativity, but behind it there is a real hunger to get the ball back and the hunger was incredible.
'We were worthy winners and it finished a brilliant season. We have kept 14 clean sheets, which is outstanding at this level.
'And to finish having beaten Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool in our first season gives us a big boost going forward.'
Rodgers now says he's looking to plan ahead for the new season, which includes sorting out deals to keep loanees Gylfi Sigurdsson and Steven Caulker.
'The season has finished and it's about planning going forward,'
'In football terms the squad will break up as players will leave and players will come in.
'I will speak to Tottenham on Steven Caulker. He has been incredible for me this season at just 19 years of age.
'With Gylfi, we will have talks with Hoffenheim over the course of the next week or so.
'That's the challenge for me, recycling the squad, retaining that hunger and giving the players help.'
