Brendan Rodgers says players are ready for February fixtures


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists his squad is physically ready for February's six games in all three competitions.

The Reds kick off a busy month with a trip to the Macron Stadium to face Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup before Saturday's Merseyside derby and back-to-back games in the Europa League against Besiktas.

"We've got a big month coming up in February," Rodgers said on Monday.

"We want to continue in the cup competitions as well as keep the momentum going in the league."

With tough fixtures against Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton also scheduled this month, the Northern Irishman is ready to rotate but is determined to win all games to keep progressing in all competitions.

"The players are in really good physical condition, that's important to understand," he said.

"You have seen what they put into the game against West Ham on the back of 120 minutes [at Chelsea]. We had real aggression in our pressing and good intensity in the game against a very difficult team.

"We had a comprehensive win at the weekend, with over 20 attempts on goal and nearly 70 per cent possession.

"It shows what level the team is at physically and we'll look to be the same in the Bolton game.

"All these games are important. The players are in really good physical condition for these, and it's what they want - they want to play games.

"We've got a good squad of players that I trust and believe in. Where I need to change and rotate, I'll do that. But the objective is still the same - to get three points or get through into the next round."
