The match also sees the return of the Northern Irishman to the club he managed before taking charge of ‘The Kops’ in 2012.

Rodgers has said Moses’ transfer deadline day move to Merseyside presents the 24-year-old the opportunity to prove himself.

“In terms of this summer, it was probably unexpected for him,” Rodgers said.

“He is a player that has got the experience- he’s 24 years of age and became available to us.

“It’s a unique opportunity for him; he’s leaving a very good club, that has been successful, and he’s coming to one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“There are not many players that get a chance to do that. He’s coming here to prove himself.”

Rodgers also said that he has always been aware of Moses’ capabilities, adding that it was no snap decision or panic purchase, even though the deal waited till the last day of the summer transfer window.

“I know he will work well because he’s a good guy; I met him when he was 16 and nearly signed him at Chelsea,” said Rodgers, referring to his time as youth coach at Stamford Bridge.

“He came to us to train while he was a young player at Crystal Palace.

“Everything was set up for him to come to Chelsea at the time and for whatever reason it fell through and he stayed.

“I know what I’m getting. He’s got the profile that suits our game in terms of technique, his quality and he’s a humble guy,” he added.

He had some good performance for Nigeria when he was away (in the last fortnight) and he really looking forward to getting in a Liverpool shirt.

“Like a lot of our attacking players, they are flexible, have good tactical intelligence and are comfortable to play in two or three positions.

“When he was a young player, he was the number nine so he can play in the central striking role or can move. In any one of those top positions, he’s comfortable.

“We’ve seen him a lot playing from the left side, where he cuts in- he’s got great feet, great ability, can shoot off either foot and can beat a man, which is important.”

Liverpool will look to maintain their 100% start to the 2013/14 season and victory tonight will have them climb back to the summit of the league table ahead of Arsenal.
