Brendan Rodgers wants strong start at Anfield against Bournemouth


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says his side wants to open their Premier League campaign at Anfield with a win.

The Reds registered a very important win away from home against Stoke City last week and are eager to produce more of the same when they take on Bournemouth on Monday night.

"I think building confidence early on is important," Rodgers told reporters on Saturday.

"I think that's key in it.

"Getting the vibrancy around the stadium again, the level of football, and obviously winning - if you can do that early on that creates the confidence and it's something that I'm looking forward to seeing this team evolve with again this season.

"It's so, so important for you, your home form, if you're going to succeed and that's the aim for this season.

"Of course you want to learn and you review [last season] but the main attribute is confidence, it's the key facet.

"If you've got confidence that will give you success and that confidence will come from working hard and getting victories at home, it's as simple as that.

"Our aim and intention in every game is to be on the front foot at home, we are a team that wants to dominate and that will always be the case, particularly at home."
