Brendan Rodgers Reveals Secrets Behind Liverpool Turnaround

Rodgers believes his side can go onto bigger things this season after a renaissance of sorts.

Brendan Rodgers has pointed to a change in his Liverpool side’s formation as the key reason for their mid-season turnaround.

The Reds are currently enjoying a nine game unbeaten run in all competitions and head into their FA Cup fourth round tie with Bolton Wanderers hot off and impressive comeback against Chelsea in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg in midweek.

The change is fortunes seems to come down to Rodgers tweaking his early season formation of a 3-5-2 to the 3-4-2-1 we first saw against Manchester United in December and although Liverpool did lose that day they did create an impressive number of chances they simply failed to convert.

Injuries to key personnel and the loss of their main driving force Luis Saurez seemed to have derailed any ambition Liverpool had to challenge for honours and reach the top four once again but to Rodgers’ credit he seems to have found a solution.

“You see the level of our game now,” Rodgers said, reports Liverpool Echo.

“I felt that somewhere it would come, it was just a case of finding solutions to allow us to do that.

“The restructuring of the system has allowed the players to come in and work this way. It’s given them comfort defensively and made us a real creative threat with the ball.

And his summer signings now seem to be finding their feet after a number of months in the wilderness. Emre Can, Lazar Markovic and Alberto Moreno have all been crucial to the Reds success going into the second half of the season.

“Now we’re seeing the quality of the new players and how they have settled,” he added.
