Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes their home fortress of Anfield may give them the edge in the title race.

The Reds went top of the table with six matches to go after Sunday's 4-0 win over Tottenham, when the famous old ground reverberated to a wall of noise generated by supporters who believe the club's 24-year wait for a championship will soon be over.

Liverpool have dropped just five points on home turf all season, winning 14 of 16 matches, and are on a run of eight successive league victories.

Rivals Manchester City and Chelsea both have to visit this month and Rodgers (above) hopes the Anfield factor will give them the necessary advantage.

"It's a swing in mentality," he said. "When you have a home ground like Anfield, and you've got the army of supporters that we have, you've got to really own the field.

"This is our pitch, our supporters, our ground, so our mentality is to own it.

"We've got an aggressive mentality at home, to win, to score goals and equally to defend.

"You put those things together, along with the supporters – who were immense (on Sunday), arguably the best atmosphere I've felt at Anfield – and it's a really strong force that you have."
