Rodgers said: "When I had been here as the Swansea manager, I always felt when Victor played here against us that he was a real threat, and scored against us here.
"I know when he came with Chelsea he scored here last year. I just had a feeling for Victor and his quality, and his goal was very good tonight. He's still getting up to speed - these are boys that haven't played a great deal over pre-season."
