Rodgers paid tribute to captain Gerrard who, after being criticised for not being able to influence the game at Arsenal, had a hand in all four goals.
"Steven's delivery is as good as it gets. No-one delivers a ball like Steven Gerrard," he said.
"I felt that the other players were not utilising the quality we had in the team in his delivery and so I asked them to be more aggressive when they attack the ball and to get across their defender.
"Every week I tell him where I want him to put the ball and he puts it there.
"You saw with two of our goals - the free kick and the corner (for the own goal and Skrtel's header) - there was incredible quality on his deliveries."
