Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is less concerned about his defence than he is about winning their way to a successful end to the season.

The Reds have kept just two clean sheets in their last 11 games, have conceded seven goals in their last three matches and their defensive record is the second-worst of the top 11 sides.

But, in contrast, they are the Premier League's leading scorers with 70 in 27 games.

"We obviously conceded disappointing goals last weekend (in beating Swansea 4-3) but ultimately at this stage of the season it is about winning," said Rodgers.

"We have put in some outstanding team performances over the last weeks and been exciting to watch going forward."
