Rodgers reveals secret behind early Liverpool match intensity

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed the secret behind their early intensity in games.

Rodgers says it's all about 'owning the pitch'.

"Our approach is very aggressive," he said. "We go into every game, and in particular our home games, looking to own the pitch.

"It's our home ground. It's our changing rooms, it's our field and it's our supporters. So we have to play like we own it.

"That's always been the mantra here for many, many years. It's one that we go in thinking about ourselves. We respect the opponent that we play - every game at this level is tough. But we back ourselves now and we expect to win.

"I think it's dealing with that pressure, which has really helped. We've got good organisation. Everyone knows their function in the team and everyone is working tirelessly in order to achieve the results."
