On the front end of his first-ever match as Liverpoool manager, Brendan Rodgers left no doubt as to how he's viewing the club's participation in Europe this season. "I don't want to disrespect the Europa League but there's no doubt the league is our priority and we want to finish as high as we possibly can. The Europa League is a competition we'd like to do well in. Obviously to do well in it you've got to play a lot of games and hopefully that will be the case. When you play for Liverpool every tournament and every game is a priority." Top priority or not, a quality performance today is a must.
