Rodgers was reflective of Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Bordeaux in the Europa League on Thursday night, and gave injury updates on captain Jordan Henderson and striker Daniel Sturridge.

He told press, “Jordan will train today so we’ll see how he comes through that – he has obviously been away and had some work done on his foot, so hopefully all will be well with that but we’ll assess it over the next 48 hours.

“Daniel has been training with the team now for a week or so and again we will assess that in relation to the game.”

Liverpool will be looking to turn around a poor start to the season after losing their last two Premier League games 3-0 to West Ham at Anfield and 3-1 at Manchester United.

Rodgers and his team have come under increased scrutiny and pressure, but the Northern Irishman says maintaining professionalism and looking at how to improve things will be key to positive results to come.

“It is about never getting too carried away if you win or disappointed if you lose,” he added.

“It (the lack of goals) has been an ongoing issue for a little while now but we will get there, and the players coming back will enhance that quality in the team and give us a greater opportunity to score goals.

“I think it’s very important you remain calm and, for me, I always focus on what I can control – I can’t control what is written or said about me.

“All I can do is control the team and how we operate, and try to maximise what I can get out of the players available.”

Liverpool vs. Norwich City gets underway at 4pm on Sunday, 20th September. Keep an eye on This Is Anfield throughout the weekend for more build-up, team news and coverage.
