Rodgers was speaking after the Reds reverted to a 4-3-3 formation for Saturday's 4-0 win over Fulham, with Kolo Toure rested and Daniel Agger joining Martin Srktel at the heart of the defence.

Rodgers says more players will taste first-team action over the busy festive period as the second-placed Reds look to push on from their strong start to the Premier League campaign.

He told the club's official website: "I just decided to change it (on Saturday).

"I have said to the players that between now and January we have one game a week.

"The players are working very well and very hard on a daily basis but I need to give oxygen to some players, so they can see a light at the end of the tunnel.

"It is important that I use the players well.

"Kolo has been sensational since he has been in but Daniel Agger is a top player. I just need to balance the team out when I can."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
