The 20-year-old followed up a strike on his first start for the Reds against Swansea City two weeks ago by creating goals for Stewart Downing and Luis Suarez in Saturday's 4-0 victory at Wigan Athletic.

Rodgers is thrilled with the manner in which Coutinho has started out at Anfield, but is adamant there is more to come.

The boss told Liverpoolfc.com: "He's adapted and fit in very well. He's a very talented young player who is a wonderful technician.

"Tactically, he participates in the game well and understands this way of working and playing.

"He created two goals with two assists against Wigan and was very impressive.

"He's still getting his fitness - he's up to 65/70 minutes now but as each day goes by he's getting stronger.

"So far, he's shown to be a very good signing for us."

Meanwhile, Rodgers was eager to heap praise upon Suarez after his hat-trick at the DW Stadium.

The striker now has 28 goals in 38 appearances for Liverpool this season and currently tops the Barclays Premier League scorers chart.

"He was incredible - you run out of the superlatives for this guy," said Rodgers.
