Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was delighted with teenage pair Suso and Raheem Sterling after victory over Reading.

Sterling became the Reds' second-youngest Premier League scorer after Michael Owen as his expertly-taken 29th-minute strike was enough to dispatch Reading at Anfield.

"Technically the two are fantastic but to play in the Premier League at the age they are shows their capabilities as well," said the Northern Irishman.

"We should have had three points here long before today and the longer it goes on it can become a concern.

"We've had some tough games here this season and so it is important we make this a real difficult place to come.

"Hopefully over the next few years we can make it a fortress here. "
