With one of the themes around Liverpool's unbeaten top-flight streak in 2014 being 'make us dream', Brendan Rodgers says he's fortunate to already be a part of a joyous experience.

The Reds are the only team not to have suffered defeat in the Barclays Premier League since the turn of the year, with nine consecutive wins catapulting the club to the summit.

As supporters whip up campaigns of encouragement, the team bulldozes through records, and the players perfectly implement his philosophy, Rodgers is relishing being at the helm of such a rich environment.

"There is lots of talk about pressure, but for us it's exciting," he said at his press conference ahead of the home clash against Manchester City.

"We're enjoying it, the players are very focused and there's certainly no nerves."

Rodgers, who was awarded the Barclays Manager of the Month accolade on Friday, revealed the enthusiasm behind Liverpool's blistering form is something he's been aspiring to, not something that would keep him up at night.

"It's what's we work for as coaches and managers," the boss explained.

"I've coached for a very long time and been in management for a short period of time; it gives me great joy to come in every day and work with the players and see how they embrace the ideas and take them onto the field.

"I'm sleeping very, very well - and I just look forward to coming here every day."

The 41-year-old credited Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group, for creating an atmosphere that advances stability and success.

"When the opportunity to come here - to one of the great institutions of world football - arose, it was something that maybe only happens once in your lifetime," added Rodgers.


"But, for me, what was important was that there was a match between the vision of the owners and mine.

"The owners were a big part of why I joined, and it gives me great pride and honour to be the manager of Liverpool Football Club.

"I'm very fortunate that I'm at a club that supports my view on the way we should play football, and how we can develop the club as a whole, and for that, I'm hugely grateful.

"The thinking of the owners is very focused on stability. They're not people who listen to the last voice, or people who get shaken easily by the highs and lows of football, which we see in the modern game."

Rodgers reiterated the notion that the Reds' ambition supersedes the next encounter or campaign - instead, everyone at the club is committed to building a sustainable stronghold.

"For us, it's not about this one game or this one season, it's hopefully going to be over a period of many years," he said.

"We're a club that has a strong identity and a strong football philosophy of how we want to work. That's something we're very proud of and hope to cultivate and grow over the years to come."
