Lallana double helps Liverpool end 2014 on a high

The victory, only Liverpool's third in their last nine Premier League games at Anfield, pushed them into eighth place on 28 points, jumping above Swansea on goals scored and just five points off the top four.

Lallana felt that Liverpool had turned a corner here after all their struggles -- a feeling Rodgers seemed to echo.

"It's something we've been searching for all season," said Rodgers, of the combination between Lallana, Coutinho and Sterling.

"There's a lot of work to do but there's a real exciting second half of the season for us."
