Liverpool star expecting ‘a few additions’
Liverpool are buoyant after beating Spurs yesterday – a result which sees them on a run of 4 straight wins – 3 in the league, against Swansea, Wigan and Spurs and one in The Europa League.
Stewart Downing, a player re-born under Brendan Rodgers, reckons that Liverpool will kick on again and sign a few new players in the summer. He told Liverpool’s official website:
“Earlier in the season we would probably have lost the game,”
“But great credit to the lads, we kept going and the fans were right behind us. I’d say it was probably one of the best wins of the season.”
The Holy Grail for Liverpool this season would, of course, be Champions League qualification and despite being 7 points off Chelsea in 4th place, having played a game more than the London outfit, Downing believes that they have a chance. In the longer term he feels that Liverpool are on an upward trajectory and will make more signings in the summer.
“It shows in the results – the 5-0s, 4-0s and 3-0s. After going behind today, we proved that we can match the big teams,”
“We’re certainly good enough as a team, we’ve proved that and that is a big victory – beating one of our rivals, who are third in the league.
“We’ve got a hell of a chance. We’ll just finish the season well and then next season, with a few additions, we can kick on.”
