The Reds go into the fourth round of Premier League games this weekend sitting top of the table with a 100% record.

Having signed Chelsea attacker Victor Moses on loan, French international defender Mamadou Sakho and Portuguese centre-back Tiago Ilori on the final day of the summer transfer window, Rodgers now has an abundance of new options to choose from.

“I’m sure there will be a part to play for some of them,” Rodgers told press at his pre-match press conference at Melwood today.

“They have been brought in for the longer term. Victor is on a season-long loan and I’ve brought him in to be a big part of what we’re doing, as with the other two boys.

“We’ve made a strong start, there’s a lot of confidence and belief in the group. These players will come in and add to that, and provide great competition.”

Liverpool ran out 1-0 winners at home to Manchester United in their last league game before the international break.

Rodgers was delighted to see all his international stars return to Merseyside with no major casualties.

He added, “We’ll see, I’m analysing and assessing the players for the first day since they all came back from international duty. They looked very good this morning and we’ll see where we’re at.

“The guys will be involved and you will find out an hour before kick-off on Monday night.”

Swansea vs Liverpool gets underway at 8pm on Monday night at the Liberty Stadium. It is live on Sky Sports in the UK.
