The Premier League leaders find themselves two points clear of second-placed Chelsea following Sundayâ€™s 3-0 win over West Ham United but they are just four ahead of third-placed City who have two games in hand.
Two Steven Gerrard penalties either side of Guy Demelâ€™s leveller allowed the Reds to extend their winning streak to nine matches ahead of what could be a title-defining fixture at home against City next Sunday.
"It's going to be a great game,â€ť Rodgers told Sky Sports.
"It's nine games on the spin now, which is an incredible effort by the players and the staff. Today was a really tough game for us, now we will recover and reflect on the game.
"It is going to be a magnificent atmosphere at Anfield. The supporters really urged us on today and we want to see if we can get 10 in a row."
