Rodgers looks for sharper shooting from Liverpool


SWANSEA, United Kingdom (AFP) - Brendan Rodgers was left to lament a series of missed opportunities and an offside goal as Liverpool left south Wales with only a point after a 0-0 draw at Swansea City.

Jose Enrique had a first-half goal disallowed for offside at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday, while Luis Suarez, Glen Johnson and Raheem Sterling came closest in a game that Liverpool just about deserved to win. They would have done, had it not have been for Swansea's German goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel and some wayward finishing.

Rodgers, who spent two seasons at the Liberty Stadium before leaving for Anfield in the summer, said: "It was an emotional return. I have seen so many people I shared great moments of my life with. It is a fantastic place to come back to.

"It was a very good game. We played really, really well and created chances, but this is a difficult place to get a result. We were unfortunate with the offside goal we had ruled out. That was a goal, I have seen it on the replay. However, we are eight games unbeaten and we are chipping away and our method was good today.
