  • Rodgers is very fortunate today. Kelechi played a part in their draw. They might have suffered another defeat then their fans would be asking him questions about his team selection. Let him continue fielding his English Favourites. Lets see how the season will play out.

     
  • Iwobi playing regularly is a joy to watch. I see him improving under Benitez and becoming an important player for club and country. At this rate, I dont see anyone upstaging him in the National team for a long time.

    According to Rodgers it’s about the balance of the team not about the results. Let’s sit and watch whr such philosophy will land him in the end.
