Rodgers thinks their home support is what could give them their first title since 1990.
Brendan Rodgers says that playing at Anfield gives Liverpool the edge as the Premier League title race begins to really hot up.
The Reds’ comprehensive 4-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday lifted the club to the top of the table due to the fact title rivals Chelsea lost at Crystal Palace and Arsenal and Manchester City drew 1-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
It means that with just six matches remaining in the season Rodgers’ side hold the advantage and could feasibly win their first title since 1990.
The reason the manager gives as to why this could happen is the support the team receives when playing at home and the atmosphere that creates for their opponents.
“It’s a swing in mentality,” the Northern Irishman was quoted by the Daily Mail.
“When you have a home ground like Anfield, and you’ve got the army of supporters that we have, you’ve got to really own the field.
“This is our pitch, our supporters, our ground, so our mentality is to own it.”
Rodgers has really reinvigorated the side since taking over in 2012 and in Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge possesses the most prolific striking partnership in European football currently.
Along with the duo known as ‘SAS’, captain Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel have all be standout performers for the club.
If Rodgers were to guide the team to the title it would be the first time they have won it since it was rebranded as the Premier League back in 1992.
