Rafael Benitez was pleased to see his side take three points from yesterday's game.Liverpool won their opening Champions League group stage game last night beating Marseille 2-1 in the Stade Velodrome. After the game Rafa Benitez spoke of his delight with the result.
"When you play only six games it is important you win the first. We have got three points from a very difficult game and that puts us in a good position in the group.
"I think PSV and Atletico will find it very difficult here.
"The team was good, we worked really hard in defence and played well on the counter attack. We had clear chances but they had chances as well,".
"Pepe Reina was really good at the end and the positive thing for me is that straight after the game Steven Gerrard said on television that we can play much better. We played well but there is room for improvement.
"Marseille were a good team who played well, particularly in attack. We had some tired players and we made changes to keep things fresh but clearly we were a bit lucky at the end.
"The fact that we've come from 1-0 down to win again shows mentally we were very good and we can recover from difficult situations."
