The 2012/13 campaign has been a slow-burner for the Anfield outfit, but they appear to have hit their stride at just the right time.

Three straight wins, including an impressive 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last time out, have fired Liverpool into the race for UEFA Champions League qualification - or a Europa League place at worst.

The Reds are still seven points off the pace at present, but Rodgers says they will be ready to pounce if those above them start to wobble heading down the final straight.

He said: "The teams above will know they can't be making any slip-ups - not only because of us, but for themselves.

"This is the stage of the season when you want to win games, and you have to win them.

"Our recent run of form shows without doubt we're a team which is improving and developing.

"The result against Tottenham showed the further enhancement of that, and we have to maintain that form to keep moving forward."

Concentrate

Rodgers added: "People know now we're a different team compared to the start of the season, for sure.

"There is a different mentality now, but there is no point in us getting carried away and looking too far ahead.

"We can only concentrate on ourselves and get as many victories as we can."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
