The Northern Irishman last season gave Andre Wisdom, Suso, Adam Morgan, Jerome Sinclair, Conor Coady, Samed Yesil and Jordon Ibe their first taste of first-team football. This season he's added Brad Smith and Joao Carlos Teixeira to the list, while Lloyd Jones, Danny Ward and Jordan Rossiter have also featured in the first-team squad as unused substitutes.

Rodgers too has rejuvenated full-back Jon Flanagan and got the most out of Raheem Sterling, both coming from the club's academy sides.
