Allen: Swans reaching new heights

Brendan Rodgers’ side could barely have had a tougher start on the

road in the Premier League having already faced Chelsea, Manchester

City and Arsenal on their travels. The Welsh club, who are unbeaten

at home, have yet to win away from the Liberty Stadium but Allen

believes the point picked up at Anfield is a clear sign they have

adjusted to the demands of playing the top sides in the division.

Allen, who was man of the match at Anfield, said: “It was a

fantastic game to be part of. Anfield is a place so full of history

and to come away with a point is a fantastic achievement that will

boost us next time out. “We have had tough away games, a real

welcome to the Premier League, but we are better off for it. We

realise what we are up against and it has taken us up to a new

level and you can only take confidence from that. “We were brave

and played the football we always want to play and that should

stand us in good stead.”
