Rodgers scraps plans to loan Sterling

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers hailed the performance of striker Luis Suarez in the 5-1 thrashing of Norwich City.

Brendan Rodgers is rethinking his decision to allow Raheem Sterling to go out on loan in January and said he will not allow the winger to leave Anfield in the New Year.

Raheem Sterling believes Liverpool can crack the Premier Leagues top-four.

Walsh: The Suarez show

The Liverpool manager had planned to send the 18-year-old England international, who had only made one league start by the end of November, out to get first-team football.

But an injury to striker Daniel Sturridge has given Sterling an opportunity and he scored in Wednesday’s 5-1 win over Norwich to convince Rodgers his short-term future is at Anfield.

He said: "Raheem has been in the squad, he has featured in a lot of games and he has started the last two so certainly at this moment in time, we wouldn’t be considering it [a loan move]."

Sterling’s goal against the Canaries, which came after Luis Suarez had scored four times, was just his third in the Premier League and Rodgers said the challenge for him now is to deliver more in the final third.

He added: "He is still only a very young player. I thought his finish was excellent, that probably gets lost amid Luis’ goals, but we have just encouraged the front players to take more of a risk and get in the box. It was a wonderful finish off his left foot.

"His pressing was very good, [with] his strength on the ball and he knows he has to add the numbers to his game in goals and assists. He scored a terrific goal and I am delighted for him."

Liverpool have no new injury worries when they face West Ham at Anfield on Saturday but forward Sturridge and left-back Jose Enrique are still sidelined.
