Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has talked up the improvement that his side have made this year and described his team as "horrible" for opponents to play against.
A resurgent Reds side haven't lost since December and they have taken 23 points from a possible 27 since the turn of the year to significantly boost their hopes of landing a place in the top four of the Premier League.
The Northern Irishman told the Liverpool Echo: "Now we've regained our identity, the home form is so important for us. We are a horrible team to play against now. And that's how it was for 18 months.
"Teams coming [to Anfield] know we'll attack and defend with intensity and aggression. We didn't have that earlier in the season for a number of reasons.
"The purpose is back in our game. Chelsea and Man City came here and only had one shot on target. Man City didn't get a corner and then we restricted Burnley in midweek."
Rodgers's side host Blackburn Rovers in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday.
