Brendan Rodgers on a tough game at Burnley and new signings


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says the away game against Burnley should not be taken lightly.

Sean Dyche's side has been struggling in the relegation zone for most part of the campaign but registered important results in their last four home games at Turf Moor, including a 1-0 win against Ronald Koeman's Southampton.

"They're always in the game," Rodgers said.

"I think it was only against West Brom were they were a little disappointing and not at their best. All the other matches they've been very good," he said.

"I remember getting promoted [to the Barclays Premier League] with Swansea and we didn't score in our first five games.

"Everyone was talking about if we had enough goals in the team to stay up, but as soon as you get that first result it gives you the confidence to kick on and that's what has happened with Burnley.

"Turf Moor is a lovely ground, but it's difficult to go and play there against guys working very hard to stay in the league. But for us it's about taking our game there and hopefully giving them more problems.

"Sean's [Sean Dyche has] been outstanding. I know him very well from when we worked together at Watford. I was the manager there and he was the youth team coach and he's done a great job."

Meanwhile, the Northern Irishman says new players could join the Reds during the January transfer window.

"If there is a possibility that we can strengthen in January, we will look at that," Rodgers said.

"There will always be speculation, but I won't comment on any players."
