The Reds bounced back from defeats against West Brom and Zenit St Petersburg by hammering Swansea in the teams' Premier League meeting last weekend.
Although Liverpool are still in with a chance of finishing within the top four of the Premier League, Rodgers' men are no longer in contention for the domestic cups after being eliminated by Swansea and Oldham earlier in the campaign. The former Swansea boss kept up his squad rotation practices during both fixtures but was let down by the performances of some of his younger players.
Speaking to TalkSport, Rodgers conceded that blooding in youngsters whilst trying to challenge for silverware was a tricky challenge.
"You've got to have a sense of the future, but certainly we're in the now and trying to win as many games as we possibly can. We're going to do everything we can to finish as high as we can this year. It's very important for us not to get too far ahead of ourselves," he stated.
"It's an unbelievable challenge and I've been given brilliant support. You're always going to have your critics and I've certainly found that out this season, moving to a big club where the spotlight is even greater, but I've loved every minute of it."
With three-quarters of the season almost over, the former Swansea boss urged all of his players to make the most of their remaining fixtures.
"We've got 11 games to go and we're going to put everything into them, along with the European games, to try and have a good end to the season," Rodgers said.
"We'll build again in the summer and then hopefully go for a big push next year."
