Reds ride luck to win group

LIVERPOOL 1

LIVERPOOL manager Brendan Rodgers toasted his side’s progress to the last 32 of the Europa League but admitted they needed some well deserved luck to top Group A.

Jordan Henderson fired in the winner from Suso’s cut-back, but Liverpool could have been knocked out with the last kick of the game had Antonio Di Natale not fired over the bar from close range.

Rodgers said: “Hopefully it is a sign we have a little bit of luck going our way because a couple of months back that would have gone in and we would be out.”
