Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has explained recalling Jamie Carragher for victory over Norwich City.

Rodgers had no doubts about his selection, though, having this week described his team as "quiet".

"Jamie Carragher has not put a foot wrong for me since I've been here. He has been absolutely brilliant," the Reds boss said.

"He hasn't played as much as he would have liked - he's played a lot of the cup games - and I hope not to put a curse on him but I can't remember him making mistake in a game for me.

"I just felt we needed his leadership. We are a quiet team and he is a great organiser and manages the game well. He has great experience and he can play football.

"I thought him coming in would give us that bit of extra leadership and I thought he was fantastic."
