Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was extremely pleased with how his team performed in the 4-0 victory over Fulham but has vowed to still further strengthen his squad in January.

The Reds secured an emphatic 4-0 win over Fulham at Anfield thanks to a brace from in-form striker Luis Suarez, a thumping header from Martin Skrtel and an own-goal from Fernando Amorebieta.

Rodgers was extremely happy with the display as seeing his side have more than 30 shots and completely dominating the game.

"You've got to give massive credit to the players because they've got to put in the work and they're doing it," Rodgers told the official Liverpool website.

"We played very well. Our appetite in the game was outstanding - there was a real hunger to get the ball. We had over 30 shots on goal so it was a really dominant performance, very pleasing.

Liverpool now sit second in the table but it seems Rodgers is still keen to make some additions to his squad when the transfer window opens in January.

The Merseyside club had great success last January as they landed Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, two players who have been instrumental in Liverpool's early season success, and Rodgers is keen to make similar additions in the new year.

"We need to bring in players for the team," added Rodgers. "We've got a squad and we've got enough cover but in the future the focus is on bringing in players that can come straight in and improve our team.

"We did that last year and benefited from that. We know what we need to improve and we know the areas we need to improve but it's all about timing and all about affordability and can we do it? I always hope that in each window we can improve the team and if we can do that we can rightly be up there.

"In January it's difficult but our recruitment guys are working very hard to try to identify that type of player that can come in. Last January we got Daniel Sturridge for the money we brought him in for, the same as Wilfried Bony went to Swansea, and he has been brilliant.

"There are players out there but you've got to dig deeper to get them in and sometimes they might not be household names but they could have the quality. When Daniel came in there were big question marks and he's answered those questions.

"Probably a lot of people had never heard of Coutinho but you can see he's a top young player. That's the challenge for us and the reality of where we are. There will be players that want to come but they'll maybe want Champions League football. We can't worry about it, we just need to find players that can make the difference for us."
