And the Liverpool striker tweeted after the match: “A shame we couldn't get the three points. Glad to help the team with another goal… Hugs to Terry, I hope it's nothing serious.”
While unbeaten in their last six Premier League games, Liverpool have won only twice in the top flight this season and lie in 13th place, eight points off the Champions League places.
And Rodgers added: “The reality is we're a long way off in the league.
“We finished eighth last year. If we can improve on that, it'll be fantastic for us. That's the reality of where Liverpool are I'm afraid. But our young players will get better and better.
“That's our sixth draw. And a lot of those games we've come back into after going behind. We're normally dominating games with the ball.”
Rodgers reiterated his call for the fresh faces he believes will make a significant difference to the squad in the New Year.
“If we can get one or two in January, we'll turn draws into wins,” he added. “Those players don't come cheap, and they're not too many available in January either. But the owners have given be great support since I've been here.
“I knew it would be a difficult year given the expectancy in Liverpool. The players are giving us everything. Hopefully we can add to the group in the windows, and next season we'll be better for it.”
Martin Skrtel missed yesterday’s game through illness, while Jonjo Shelvey was excluded as a precaution after suffering a thigh twinge.
The midfielder, though, will join up with the England squad ahead of Wednesday’s friendly against Sweden in Stockholm, along with Steven Gerrard, who injured his knee during the second half.
“Jonjo was in some shooting exercises in training and felt his thigh a bit,” said Rodgers. “But he'll meet up with England, they'll look at him and we'll make a decision from there.
“I think Steven will be all right. He's opened up his medial ligament a bit and has some ice on his knee.”
