Rodgers says Liverpool players not afraid of Anfield fans

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists the players are inspired by the Anfield fans.

The Reds have won just one of their six Barclays Premier League games at home so far this term, but the manager doesn't believe his players are feeling any kind of burden.

"Hand on heart, I really don't sense that," Rodgers told liverpoolfc.com, when asked if his players felt any kind of pressure to perform at home.

"Anfield is a wonderful place to play and the supporters have been incredible for us this season. I've had people come to the games and sat with people afterwards, including opposition managers, who have commented on the great support and how they believe in what we're doing.

"I don't feel that there is a burden. It's the responsibility of us as players and management to get results consistently.

"I had the same thing at Swansea. The support we got was great and that gave us the momentum to push forward and win a lot of games at home.

"This is what Anfield has to be like and the supporters are playing their part. They have given us incredible backing."
