Meanwhile Rodgers is worried about his back-up plans when both the key-players are unavailable for The Reds.
The report claims, Rodgers has indicated and already identified few targets for the reinforcements from the January transfer window.
“I think every window for us will be exactly the same – if there’s a player we think can improve our squad and in particular the team, I’m sure we will be able to go out and get that player”
“It was always going to be the case that if we had a few injuries to key players, that leaves us light.
“It’s no different to a lot of squads, but for us it’s even more prominent because Daniel Sturridge and young Coutinho were not playing and they are good players.”
