A brace from Roberto Firmino and goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Milner, saw Liverpool put Rodgers side to the sword.

The win saw Liverpool stretch their lead on the Foxes to 13 points and maintain their unbeaten streak.

“They have a great cushion but that can go very quickly,” Rodgers said after the game.

“They have the power and strength and now the big thing is the confidence.

“Having won the Champions League, Club World Cup and Super Cup, they have the feeling and the squad is very strong. They will be hard to shift in the second part of the season.

“People were trying to put us in a race with Liverpool but we know where we are.”

Rodgers added: “We are at the halfway point now. We are 19 games in. It is the bigger picture with these guys. We have come a long way in this period.

“The players have been brilliant and this is another learning game for them, they see the physicality you need to compete.”

Up next for Rodgers team is an away trip to London to face West Ham United on Saturday.

And on January 1st, Leicester will be on the road again when they travel to St. James’ Park to face Newcastle United.

For Liverpool, they have a tricky home clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.

Wolves are currently eight on 27 points in the league, just five points from fourth position.

And on January 2nd, Liverpool have another home game this time against Sheffield United.
