Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was pleased with Suso's performance in defeat to Manchester United.

One positive was the performance of Spanish teenager Suso, who replaced the injured Fabio Borini at half-time and turned in an impressive display on his first appearance in the Barclays Premier League.

"Fabio goes off and young Suso came on and I think you could see the excitement," said Rodgers. "There are a group of young players here who hopefully in the next few years can take the club forward.

"We'll have to wait and see with the injuries, but on the other hand the positives are some young players are getting an opportunity and doing very well."
