Brendan Rodgers: It's an important game, we want to win it


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes Sunday's game against Manchester United will have little bearing on the race for the top four.

The Reds will leapfrog the Red Devils if they beat Louis van Gaal's men at Anfield but Rodgers insists the top four battle will go down to the wire.

"It's an important game," Rodgers said on Friday afternoon.

"These games in particular are always great spectacles and obviously the rivalry is historic.

"It's a game at Anfield against a big rival and we want to win the game.

"I don't think the result will be an overriding factor because there are still a number of games to go, but certainly psychologically it can give you a great boost.

"We've got really good momentum. We have shown over the last three months the qualities we clearly have in the team, that perseverance and character in the side and ultimately the quality that we have.

"We arrive into the game knowing it will be a difficult game for us. Manchester United are coming off the back of a good performance.

"But when we play at Anfield in particular, we are very confident and we'll look to take that confidence that we have shown in the last three months into this game and hopefully continue with that momentum."
