Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is relishing a Capital One Cup fourth-round clash with former club Swansea - and is determined the holders will not easily relinquish their grip on the trophy after they defeated West Brom 2-1.

Rodgers made 11 changes for the third-round trip to the Baggies and two goals from on-loan Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin secured a win after Gabriel Tamas had given Albion an early lead. The Reds manager made the switch from the Swans in the summer and was finally able to celebrate his first win in domestic football with his new club.

"The Swansea game will be a special occasion, very much so. It is a wonderful club, a brilliant club, and I was in no rush to leave there," Rodgers said.
