Liverpool boss Rodgers defends scattergun Suarez
Rodgers refused to criticise Suarez after the Uruguay international could not find the finishes which have brought him.
"He could have had a hat-trick by half-time," Rodgers said.
"It just wasn't his night but he's been brilliant for us all season.
"The important thing is that after his first one-on-one, he kept going and was still in there."
