Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says that he is looking forward to returning to Anfield against Sunderland this week following three away trips.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is hopeful that his team can continue their strong run in the Premier League when they take on Sunderland at Anfield.

The Merseyside outfit will return home on Wednesday following three away victories, making it six wins in a row for the club.

Despite beginning the season with ambitions of reaching the top four, Liverpool have pushed on to become title contenders and are currently second in the table, four points adrift of leaders Chelsea.

"We're really looking forward to playing at Anfield now on Wednesday night," Rodgers told the club's official website. "It's a big game for us.

"Hopefully the supporters can really get behind the team well before kickoff, get the atmosphere revved up for the game and we'll look to continue on this great run. As you can see, we believe we can perform well and get results."

Liverpool have eight games left to play this season.
