The 20-year-old, who signed for the Reds from Inter Milan in the winter transfer window, impressed during the Reds' 4-0 win over Wigan Athletic on Saturday by playing a part in the Merseyside outfit's first two goals.
"Philippe was brought in because of his talent and his humility," the Liverpool Daily Post quotes Rodgers as saying. "He is a young player with big experience and he is on the wavelength of the top players.
"He has fitted in seamlessly into the scene because he is a wonderful technician and tactically he is very good. He is still not up to speed yet but you can see where he slots in. He is a player who can make the difference. He is clever with his passing and can make and score goals."
Liverpool are now placed in seventh in the Premier League table.
