Tasked with facing a former Liverpool assistant in his first Premier League match in charge of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers seems to have little concern about the opposition's familiarity with his side. "I think it's a different team. Obviously it's mostly the same players, but the identity of the team will be different. How I work is totally different as well - I'm a different tactician. When you get to work with players, you tend to get to know certain little bits of things that normally you wouldn't, but this is a different way of playing and working - and hopefully Saturday will prove that."

Saturday's here.
