Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes his side have turned a corner as they seek to extend their unbeaten seven-match Barclays Premier League run.
A second home win of the season last weekend against Wigan came on the back of a draw at Chelsea and there is a general feeling that there has been an upturn at Anfield. Their current undefeated sequence is the Reds' longest since November last year, when they managed eight matches, and only leaders Manchester City have gone longer without losing.
"I felt the opening period was always going to be difficult for us; a new manager, new ideas and some tough fixtures," he said. "There has been a lot of change over the course of the summer but it is much smoother now and there is a real spurt around the club."
