Rodgers, who has just completed a charity trek up Mount Kilimanjaro, is looking forward to pitting his wits against the best in England's top flight.
"We're really looking forward to it," said Rodgers.
"We'll go out every game looking to defend our philosophy and the way we like to play football.
"We'll go and look to win every game that we play.
"Every player wants to be a Premier League player and as a young coach - I'm 38 years of age - to manage in the Premier League is a fantastic experience for me.
"I know the odds against us are phenomenal.
"We're going to go to every game and try to be as positive as we can be.
"We understand there are going to be some tricky games for us and we'll win, lose and draw along the way."
