Rodgers slams EPL fixtures

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has criti-cised the Premier League for the scheduling of Sun-day's match against former club Swansea at Anfield.

This weekend's only Premier League fixture means Liverpool will play three times in a week after losing to top-flight rivals West Brom 2-0 on Monday and going down by the same scoreline away to Zenit St Petersburg in the first leg of their last 32 Europa League clash on Thursday.

Asked Friday about the timing of Sunday's match, Rodgers -- who left Swan-sea before the start of this season to join Liverpool, replied: "I was very disappointed with the Premier League to be honest.

"I think every other country in Europe will always try to help their teams -- some of them will play on a Friday before a European game."
