This partnership will give us additional firepower to invest in the Bank and strengthen its capabilities, while retaining and enhancing its distinctive Christian character.

Liverpool’s momentum grows in win over Swansea as stars return from injury

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was pleased his side’s momentum was not blown off course as his side ground out a 1-0 win over Swansea. “Good news for the big Liverpool family,” added Klopp, whose side moved up to sixth, just six points behind leaders Manchester City whom they beat last weekend. “Two very important players for us are back in the race and they did well for their situation, where they have come from after a long break.” Under-pressure Swansea boss Garry Monk was defiant in defeat, insisting his side did not perform like a team which has won just once since the end of August. “From minute one we were excellent today, from start to finish we limited a good Liverpool side to virtually nothing, we were never in danger,” he said. “We could have done a bit more in the final third but I can’t complain at all, I feel gutted for the players who were excellent today and deserved a lot more than they got. “At the end of the day it is my responsibility for results and results haven’t been good enough in this period but that did not look like a team in trouble did it?” Monk was unhappy about the award of the penalty, which came when Neil Taylor was adjudged to have handled Jordon Ibe’s cross. “The penalty was extremely soft,” he said. “It hits his elbow, Neil is facing the other way. I thought handball had to be intentional and it clearly wasn’t but the linesman put his flag up quickly. “To lose the game on a decision which was out of our hands is extremely disappointing. “It has kind of been part of the problem in this period in that the decisions you need to go for you go against you but it isn’t an excuse. “I’m not looking for excuses. I accept full responsibility for this run of results.” Press Association The German felt the football was affected by winds gusting up to 50mph but his side recorded their first Premier League home victory since he took over – and their first at Anfield since September 26 – thanks to James Milner’s 62nd-minute penalty. “The wind was crazy because it changed all the time. For both teams it was really difficult,” said Klopp. “In this time you cannot take this game and say ‘This is how football should be’. Wind is the biggest enemy of football but we did okay. “Players can usually play better passes but it is not easy. “This wasn’t our best performance but it was our best performance in a strong wind. “It was good in many parts of the game. We played against an opponent who were very well organised. “I think it was our best game in defensive organisation. “We made the goal and defended really well. Simon Mignolet had not that much work. It was a big plus for the whole team. “We were deserved winners. In this moment we have to fight in really difficult circumstances and that is what the boys did and everyone can be proud.” Liverpool received a further confidence boost from the returns of captain Jordan Henderson, out since mid-August, and Daniel Sturridge, making his first appearance since Brendan Rodgers’ last game in charge on October 4. last_img read more
