Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is delighted with their form going into the new season.

After victory over Bayer Leverkusen, Rodgers was asked how he feels ahead of the big kick off a little more than two months on from being appointed Liverpool boss.

He replied: "I will never be complacent. I've got so much to prove here. I have got to fight for my life to prove I am good enough to be here. I feel comfortable in relation to my position and work on the field. My promise was to fight for the club every single day.

"We're in a good moment and a good position. We've had a terrific pre-season and we've already started our competitive games in the Europa League. We now arrive into the Barclays Premier League next week with a real strong mindset and hopefully that can continue."
