Liverpool have already dropped six points at Anfield this season, with the Reds having taken the lead in matches against Sunderland, Norwich City and Manchester United before drawing the game 1-1.

A 100% record at home would see Liverpool sitting second in the table challenging for the Premier League title and goalkeeper Pepe Reina claims that his team aren’t too far away from a title tilt.

“We are a much better team than last season,” said the Spain international.

“We have strength in the team and the squad and it has become competitive right now.

“It is just the first step we have to take in a long-term project.

“Things are improving but we want to be even better and at some point be champions of the Premier League again.”

Meanwhile, Kenny Dalglish has called for supporters to be patient on Saturday against Swansea, with the Scot expecting the Welsh side to have plenty of possession.

“Everyone needs a certain amount of patience – the players and the supporters – because they (Swansea) are going to have possession of the ball at some stage of the game,” said Dalglish.

“Sometimes there is a bit of disrespect for teams who have been promoted. We’ve rued the games against some promoted teams over the last few years.

“We have to be patient in a lot of aspects of the game.”
