Liverpool boss Rodgers delighted with current Sterling form

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is happy to count on Raheem Sterling.

The winger was restricted to a handful of opportunities in the first team in the opening months of the campaign, but has been selected from the start for each of the Reds' last three matches.

"He'll be disappointed, he should have scored; he had a couple of very good chances," Rodgers told Liverpoolfc.com following the win over West Ham United on Saturday.

"But confidence is returning for him. He's making some great runs beyond, it's just if he can get that bit of composure. He slipped a couple of times when he was in good positions.

"He's a terrific young player to have. He will always be important for us this season; he didn't play so much in the opening months, but you can see that he's a real threat when he's at the top of his game."
