Liverpool boss Rodgers happy youngsters headlined Arsenal rout

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is delighted with the progress of his young players.

The Reds' rout of Arsenal was highlighted by the influence of BR's young players.

"In the last couple of games at home, against Everton and Arsenal, we had 19-year-old Raheem Sterling playing wide. Jon Flanagan is 21, Jordan Henderson is 23 and Coutinho is 21, but it's not affecting them because they are concentrating on their performance.

"It's my job to release the pressure from them so that they can play and they can organise their work and feel free to work how we do on a daily basis. We'll just continue along that line.

"I have a great belief in the players here that I have got. And we want to build on that over the coming years. But I take great pride in making people better, both on the field and helping them off the field."
