Rodgers felt every man in red played their own part in clinching the win in front of a passionate Anfield crowd.
"From the goalkeeper right the way through to Daniel Sturridge, the 11 players and the guys who came off the bench all played a big part today in the victory," he said.
"Through the spine of the team, Sturridge was excellent, Steven Gerrard has shown at 33 he's still got the composure, tenacity and quality to play in these games, and the two centre-halves were excellent. The goalkeeper was assured, safe and very motivated.
"Today was about the team and they got the rewards with a terrific performance."
