Liverpool is having an amazing season and they are under a spectacular run of eight straight wins including Arsenal, Manchester United and the latter Tottenham Hotspur outclassed at Anfield Road 4-0.

Liverpool coach Rodgers speaks about the performance and playing at Anfield:

“We love playing at Anfield. The support today was incredible and that’s only going to intensify as the season goes on. You can see it works for us, rather than against us.

“That’s as good as I’ve heard Anfield since I’ve been a manager here. The two forces [fans and players] together made us a real tough opponent today.

“We had real dominance in the game right from the first whistle. I thought it was an exceptional performance. It was an outstanding team performance and I thought the supporters were brilliant today.

“Everything we’ve been working towards over this last year-and-a-half, in terms of without the ball; that hunger and intensity to get the ball back, from the first whistle to the end [was there].

“Then our dominance in possession was very impressive. We had long spells with the ball trying to tire Tottenham out, open up the space and then we’ve got the penetration at the top of the field.”

“We’re trying to make something that’s sustainable here – not just for this season, we’re trying to grow and develop this club.

“It’s fantastic the supporters now have hope because there are only six games to go. I enjoy it, it’s why I’ve worked hard all of my life since I was a young boy, travelling throughout Europe to find out about some of top leagues and teams.

“I don’t think anybody expected us to be where we are. The last few seasons we have been eighth and we finished seventh last year. We go into every game to win and I expect it. What’s been great to see is that idea and methodology of our work bearing fruit in the game.

“There are still some great teams up there and some world-class managers. We understand it’s going to be very difficult, but we just control what we can do – and if we can do that, we’ll just see where it takes us.”
