The Reds, who remain well placed to challenge for the Premier League crown, will welcome a number of their fellow title hopefuls to Anfield over the coming months.

Everton, Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea will all visit Merseyside in 2014, offering Liverpool a potentially crucial edge in their top flight fight.

Rodgers acknowledges that performances in front of their own supporters will be key for Liverpool - with eight successes having already been collected from nine outings at Anfield.

The Reds boss said: "We have got all these teams to play at home. All the teams, apart from Manchester United, are all to come to Anfield. We are very strong at home.

"And if we can reinforce the group in these next four weeks, then it sets us up.

"It was always the case that I felt we needed to improve at home. It was too easy for teams to come here and I don't think that is the case now.

"I think teams come and they have to contain us rather than come with great confidence of getting a result.

"It is still in our hands and that's what gives me the great confidence. How we've been at Anfield over the course of this year means we have a big part to play in our own destiny and that is all you can ever hope for.

"You look at the other teams, like Manchester City, they have played a lot of their games at home and so have to go on their travels. They have had their difficulties on their travels.

"So, for us, the second half of the season at Anfield will be massive."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
