Cape Town - Liverpool will shift attention to their European exploits and not dwell on a shock home loss at the hands of  Aston Villa according to the Reds' manager Brendan Rodgers. 

Liverpool v Aston Villa

Reds' manager Brendan Rodgers almost immediately drew a line under his side's loss to Aston Villa with his attention now firmly on the club's return the Champions League.

"This is a group that has shown over the time that I've been here that we have to get over disappointment and move to the next game," Rodgers told Liverpoolfc.com.

"We have to move on."

"Our focus now goes straight to Tuesday night.

"It will be a wonderful occasion for us to be back in Champions League football and hopefully getting over [the Villa result] by getting a win in the first group game."

Despite missing a first half header that would've heaped more pressure on Liverpool, Philippe Senderos was delighted with his side's Anfield win.

 "I don't think many teams will come to Anfield and get a win. We showed a lot of character.

"I thought it was a fantastic performance from everyone." said the former Gunners defender on avfc.co.uk.

"From Gabby up front to Guzan in goal, everyone did their job brilliantly.

"We showed brilliant character. Everyone was fighting until the end. It was a great win for us."
