Rodgers Explains Reasons For 6 Team Changes

Brendan Rodgers explained his reasons for making 6 changes to the team that lost 4-0 at QPR.

David Cotterill, Stephen Dobbie, Neil Taylor, Jermaine Easter, Mark Gower and Andrea Orlandi replaced Darren Pratley, Joe Allen, Kemy Agustien, Garry Monk, Scott Sinclair and Craig Beattie.

Rodgers revealed to the Official Site that he planned out his teams for the busy Christmas period:

'I sat down with all the staff a week ago and planned our teams over the next four games,''

'With four games in eight days we had to optimise our performance levels and I felt some players would need a rest. It was important we had players that were fresh coming in.

'I've said in the past that I've got a fantastic squad here and the players that came in made their mark.


He also praised goalscorer Jermaine Easter:

'Coming from Cardiff, Jermaine had a mixed reception when he made his debut. But the supporters here are terrific and gave him a great reception when he came off.

'It proves that if they see you giving 100 per cent it doesn't matter where you are from.

'It's nice for him. When you go to a new club as a striker, you want to score goals. And it was a great finish from him.''
