Liverpool won 1-0 against Hearts on Thursday in the first leg of the Europa League playoff tie. Brendan Rodgers’ side was playing without some of its senior players, and the Scottish opposition provided a stern test.
The difference was only an own goal from Andy Webster following a fizzed-in ball from Liverpool right-back Martin Kelly. Despite nothing to get excited about on paper, the match was surprisingly exciting with both sides showing good attacking intent.
Rodgers confirmed that he was expecting to wrap up the deal for bringing in Turkish maestro Nuri Sahin in the post-match press conference.
