Europa League Round Table: Hearts 0 - 1 Liverpool

So an own goal from ex player of Charlie Adam's old team helps guide us through a tricky tie's first leg.
These are no-win games in some respects, win, well, we're expected to. Lose, well its a banana skin waiting to happen.

Hearts played with heart and closed us down, but the later fitness and continued sticking to a passing game helped us but both sides could've had a goal or two.

Not much to comment on individual performances, suffice to say Shelvey at times looked like he was following Rodgers' maxim "pass pass pass". Just to Hearts. And Reina looked a class apart.

Onwards and upwards to Sunday and the visit of City.

Thoughts? Was Brendan vindicated in leaving out bigger names? Would he have been if the result had been 0-0 or even 1-0 to them?
