SOUTHAMPTON, United Kingdom (AFP) - Brendan Rodgers believes Liverpool are a different proposition to the team beaten by Southampton earlier this season as the Reds prepare for a vital trip to St Mary's on Saturday.

Rodgers' side are just four points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea with 11 matches remaining, sparking hope at Anfield of a surprise title challenge.

With six wins and two draws, the fourth-placed Reds are unbeaten in six matches since the turn of the year and also have a six-point cushion to Tottenham in fifth.

The 1-0 loss to Mauricio Pochettino's side in September is still their only league defeat at Anfield all season.
