Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has warned Arsenal that they face a tough task at Anfield tomorrow afternoon, with the Reds boss promising that his team play better the bigger the game is.

The Merseyside giants lost 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium to Arsene Wenger's men earlier this season but, with just 14 games left to play in the Premier League, the next meeting between the two sides promises to be crucial to each club's aspirations.

Arsenal visit sitting top of the league, but Rodgers is not overawed and is backing his side to rise to the occasion.

"We've been brilliant at home", Rodgers said via LFC TV.


"The performance level from the players and the support that the fans have produced over the majority of the games has been outstanding. So it's another big game for us.

"I feel that the bigger the games are, sometimes, the better we play. Against Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Manchester United we showed that.

"We're really looking to show our confidence and belief and put in a performance that is going to get a win for us."

Liverpool currently sit fourth in the Premier League standings with 47 points from 24 games.

Rodgers' men, who were top of the table on Christmas Day, are eight points behind Arsenal.
