Rodgers: Reds ready to win title

LIVERPOOL manager Brendan Rodgers believes his squad have the required character to overcome their title rivals and secure a first league crown for 24 years.

The Reds take on struggling Sunderland tonight knowing a seventh straight Premier League win will close the gap on leaders Chelsea to one point.

Rodgers said: “There is no doubt we are on the right road to winning a title here.

“In my time there has been various items thrown at the team. We certainly have the strength of character and we have shown that consistently over a period of time.”

Sunderland’s on-loan striker Fabio Borini is ineligible to play against his parent club.
