"It was fantastic. It was everything we'd wanted out of the game." Rodgers told Sky Sports News. "First and foremost, our work-rate, how we pressed the ball as a team, was outstanding and that earned us the right to play.
"We got five goals and could easily have had seven or eight. That was probably the most complete performance since I've been here, and just continues the evolution of what we're trying to do.
"We just want to continue improving, continue to work on how we play. Today was great and I really enjoyed watching the team today in every aspect."
Liverpool's next Premier League encounter comes next weekend when they face Cardiff City at Anfield.
