RODGERS REACTIONOn getting Chelsea in the semi-finals..."The most important thing was getting through. It's going to be very difficult against Chelsea. It didn't really matter who we got, we just needed to get there. If you want to win this you have to win games against good sides and we'll look forward to it. "On tonight's game..."I thought we were outstanding. At Old Trafford, I saw signs that I was pleased with. It was always going to be a difficult job, but we've come away from home and and been in control of the game and created many chances. Credit to Bournemouth, they kept going but overall for us it was a wonderful performance."
