Rodgers praises Coutinho and Henderson for Liverpool performances

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has lavished praise on midfield duo Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson for their performances this season, according to Sky Sports.

Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson

The 41-year-old was particularly pleased with the players’ showing at Anfield in the 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal on Saturday.

Henderson has nailed down a first team place this season with his performances, whilst Coutinho has become arguably the team’s valued playmaker since making the switch from Inter last year.

“(Coutinho) five foot seven, he's got brilliant technique, he's tactically cute and clever, but physically he's has everything to cope,” said Rodgers.

“He's got a wonderful feel for a pass that not many players have. You either get midfield players who are holding midfield players or they're runners - he's one that can do both.”

Rodgers also commented on the influence of Henderson in the side’s midfield this season and believes that the 23-year-old is in a strong position for an England call up.

“Jordan has got everything physically," Rodgers added. “He has stature as a player and I have been mightily impressed with his tactical idea of the game and now he looks like he is ready to play for England for many years.

“The way he is working, we would want to secure his services (on a new contract). He still has all his best years ahead of him and you can see his growth and development.

“He will want to get better and I'm sure it is in the interests of the club to tie him down,” added the Liverpool boss.
