Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists there is no chance of his side treating Thursday night's Europa League clash against Hearts with complacency.

The Edinburgh side endured a 5-0 defeat to Tottenham at Tynecastle in the same competition last season. But Rodgers says Liverpool will not read too much into Hearts' recent record against English opposition ahead of the play-off first leg in Edinburgh.

He said of his players: "It's certainly something that I've noticed in my short time here, that they are allergic to complacency. There is no question about that. They focus every day and their concentration is good. They'll understand the size of the task in terms of coming here and having to play well."
