Brendan Rodgers' side cruised to a comfortable victory at Anfield thanks to strikes from Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge.

The Italy striker posted a picture on the digital photo-sharing site of his Liverpool team-mates celebrating Sturridge's goal with the caption: "Someone doesn't Like me But differently of what they say about me im a team player and im so proud of my team,of this win and of these fans! let's keep going bravi ragazzi!!!
