Rodgers: Players Have Enough Recovery Time

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers feels that despite his team’s short recovery period after the FA Cup victory over Bournemouth, the Reds will be ready to take on their fierce rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby on Tuesday.

The 2-0 win at their Championship hosts means that Liverpool secured a spot in the fifth round of the FA Cup, and Rodgers chose to field a near strength side.

“We have a very thin squad, and along with that we've got a number of injuries, but the tradition of the FA Cup for Liverpool is huge," Rodgers told his post-match press conference.

"We want to pay respect to the competition because we want to get to the final and win it if we can.”

"The players have had enough recovery time and will recover well for Everton. They have everything there to recover.”

"We go into Tuesday's game on the back of a good win against a good Championship side."
