“Kelechi comes in and I know what I get from him. He’s so strong, so powerful and he gives us great opportunities to build the game and link the game,” Rodgers told the club’s official website after the game.

“You see his goal, he’s got great confidence now, whether he starts or comes into the game. I thought Marc Albrighton when he came on, was aggressive, as well, playing at a high tempo, and it was much better.”

City face Villa in the second leg on Tuesday , January 28 at the Villa Park.
