Liverpool close a thrilling 2014 dreaming of better things to come

The ESPN FC panel discuss Liverpool's 1-0 victory at Burnley and highlight Brendan Rodgers' handling of his goalkeeping situation.

Brendan Rodgers hosts his former side on Monday night as Liverpool take on Swansea City in the final league game of what has been a dramatic 2014.

The Swans go into the game three points and one place ahead of Liverpool but have already tasted defeat at Anfield this season in the Capital One Cup. Gary Monk's side had led until very late in that game but were undone by a Mario Balotelli equaliser and a last-gasp winner from Dejan Lovren.

Mario Balotelli return would delight Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi

As Daniel Sturridge remains out with an injury and the Mario Balotelli experiment on edge, Brendan Rodgers should not sacrifice one of Liverpool's stars in order to gather reinforcements, according to ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti.

Mauro Icardi has invited Mario Balotelli to join Inter Milan, although the Serie A club appear to be focusing on other targets this winter.

Balotelli has been linked with a return to the Nerazzurri after failing to settle at Liverpool, with current Inter coach Roberto Mancini recently saying any club would want the Italian forward if he were to rediscover his best form.

Simon Mignolet opens up about being dropped to the Liverpool bench

The ESPN FC panel discuss Liverpool's 1-0 victory at Burnley and highlight Brendan Rodgers' handling of his goalkeeping situation.

Simon Mignolet has claimed he had a "positive discussion" with Brendan Rodgers when he discovered he was being dropped and insists he has nothing to prove on his return to the Liverpool team.
