We go into every game expecting to win, and never more so than at Anfield

Sterling feels that Rodgers, now midway through his second season at Anfield, has instilled a fresh belief amongst his squad on Merseyside.

And the 19-year-old England international is confident that the Reds can get the better of Arsene Wenger’s men this weekend.

“When I first came in the pressure to win was difficult for us, but I think the big change for us is we expect to win now,” Sterling is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror.

“We were never that confident to consistently do it. But now because of the level and consistency of our work we go into every game expecting to win, and never more so than at Anfield.

“We see that belief and expectancy to win in our results. We’ll always respect every opponent and none more so than the leaders. But we’ll come into the game looking to perform and win.”
