Hughes is better off at Derby - Rodgers

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says Derby midfielder Will Hughes is best off staying with the Rams and denies the Reds have approached the 18-year-old.

Rodgers' side travel to Goodison Park on Saturday for the 221st Merseyside derby, with star striker Luis Suarez flying back by private jet after helping Uruguay secure a spot at the 2014 World Cup.

The Reds manager also confirmed defender Jose Enrique is ruled out with a knee injury which will require surgery.
