Wait goes on for Rodgers
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is still waiting for the return of his injured players and will select from the same squad as last weekend for Saturday's visit of Arsenal.
Defenders Daniel Agger (calf) and Glen Johnson (ankle) should be back in training next week but Mamadou Sakho is still short of fitness.
Left-back Jose Enrique's recovery from a knee operation is taking longer than required and he may not be available for another month.
The Reds have not beaten Saturday's visitors at Anfield in the league since March 2007.
Yet fourth-placed Liverpool have lost just once in the last 18 home matches and scored the same number of league goals at Anfield - 33 - as they did in the whole of last season at home.
They have dropped just five points in 12 matches at Anfield, winning 10 times, and are three league places and 12 points better off than the same stage last season.
"Our home form has been brilliant and that is vitally important for any team, especially a team who wants to be challenging at the top of the table," said Rodgers.
"We are going to go into each game looking to win the game. There is a greater confidence now.
"I certainly sensed (last season) there was maybe that little bit of fear of playing at Anfield because of the result.
"What we've tried to do over the course of the time I've been here is focus on the performance.
"You worry so much about the result but there is a process to getting the result - and if you worry too much about the result only it can hinder your performance.
"We want to win but what we can look to control is how we win and our performance level.
"That's something that over time has given us a confidence and a greater belief in winning games. We'll aim to replicate that at the weekend.
"We will always respect every opponent we play and none more so than the leaders but we will come into the game looking to perform and hopefully win.
"We expect to win now. I think when I first came in the pressure to win was difficult for us.
"We expect it because of the size of the club but we were never that confident to consistently do it, but now we go into every game expecting to win and none more so than at Anfield."
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hopes England midfielder Jack Wilshere can return from an ankle injury to help his side make a "big statement" at Anfield.
Wilshere should be fit having sat out last weekend's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, which would be a welcome boost following suspension to Mathieu Flamini while both Aaron Ramsey and deadline-day loan signing Kim Kallstrom are still several weeks away from recovery.
"In the big games it is always decided by having the complete squad available," said Wenger.
"(It's important to have) as many top players as possible because most of the time these games are decided by players who come on or strong players who have a big statement in a big game."
