Luis Suarez hit a hat-trick for the Reds and Daniel Sturridge added a fourth to keep the Anfield side in second place in the Premier League, despite James Morrison's penalty for the visitors.

Rodgers said: "I thought in the first half we were absolutely outstanding, passing and moving, the fluency was excellent.

"We obviously went 3-0 up and looked comfortable in the game, but bitterly disappointed because we were looking for a clean sheet, and it was a bad decision by the linesman.

"I thought the referee was excellent today, and was in a good position to see the penalty.

"The linesman has given it, and that gave them a little bit of momentum for about five or ten minutes.

"After we controlled the game again and Daniel got the fourth goal, which was outstanding, we went on and maybe could have got one or two more.

"It was a very impressive performance by the team against a very good side."

The Northern Irishman also praised his strike partnership of Suarez and Sturridge, saying: "They're very hard to contain because they've got different qualities and they're both goalscorers.

"It was an outstanding team performance today and the guys at the top end have done their job and got the goals."

o be fair, one of the reasons its so difficult for certain clubs to get close to Real Madrid or Barcelona is once they have a player who is good enough to compete against the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona, they f*ck off, usually to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.
