Rest gave Gerrard energy - Rodgers

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says that resting Steven Gerrard for Saturday's game against Stoke helped the midfielder's display in his team's 3-1 win at Leicester.

Gerrard scored on his return to the Reds starting line-up in between goals from Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson, as Liverpool came from behind after Simon Mignolet's own goal had given Leicester the lead. Wes Morgan was sent off for the Foxes in the second half.

Leicester are the 33rd different team that Gerrard has scored against in the English top-flight.
