A run of 6 straight wins has propelled the Reds up the table and they will head into the clash just four points behind Chelsea.

While many Liverpool fans will be dreaming of a first Premier League title, boss Brendan Rodgers admits that while the club are on the right track they may have to wait.

“We haven’t won it for a long time and it may or may not be this year but there is no doubt we are on the right road to winning a title here,” said the Red boss.

“We are nowhere near the finished article but while we are learning and improving we will hopefully continue to pick up the points.

“We are enjoying the moment and the football. We still have a hell of a way to go to be near where I want us to be but we are certainly making strides and are on the right path.

“It is by no means the finished article but we are evolving and I take great pride in that.

“It is (about developing) a consistency and it is doing it year after year. I feel there is still quite a lot of improvements to make.

“We have been asked questions in games and have come through and I am sure we will be asked many more questions.”
Rodgers is unlikely to tinker too much for his side although Joe Allen could make for Raheem Sterling with Philippe Coutinho dropping into midfield alongside Jordan Henderson and Steven Gerrard.

Liverpool have no new injury worries to contend with going into the game with long term absentee Jose Enrique still out.

Sunderland meanwhile will head to Merseyside looking for their first win away to Liverpool since the 1983/1984 season.

Gus Poyet’s men have lost three of their last five games with just the one win to show for their efforts. The run of results leaves them struggling in the bottom three and while they have games in hand on those around them, they need to start picking up points.

Their most setback came in a 2-0 reversal away to Norwich last time out and they head into the clash with the Reds sweating on the fitness of striker Steven Fletcher.

The Scottish star is struggling with an ankle injury and looks set to join Kieren Westwood on the sidelines.
