The high level of conditioning within the Liverpool squad leaves Brendan Rodgers with no fitness concerns as his team prepare to navigate a third fixture in eight days this weekend.

Having racked up a 6-3 victory at Cardiff City last Saturday, the Reds saw off a spirited Sunderland side by a single goal on Wednesday evening; and next up are Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.

At his pre-match press conference on Friday, the Northern Irishman was questioned on whether his team's additional game in comparison to Sunday's opponents could have any effect.

His assessment, founded on the precise training regimes undertaken each day at the club's complex in West Derby, offered arguments for why that will not be the case when Spurs roll into town.

"There are different ways you can look at it," Rodgers responded. "We've had it this season already where we've had midweek games.

"Earlier on in the season, we had a cup game that went into extra time - against Notts County at home - and then at the weekend we beat Manchester United 1-0. People thought the midweek game was going to be a really taxing game.

"The condition of our players is very good, physically they are in a really good moment and they have been throughout the course of the season.

"If you look physiologically at the team, because of how we press - our philosophy is to press aggressively at the top of the field - our work on a daily basis is conditioned in order to do that.

"As well as the recovery process, which is important, the condition of the players is very good. We play with high energy, high tempo, high intensity and the players have been exceptional in terms of what their input is into the game."

The manager was also asked for an update on any injuries currently afflicting his players and happily reported no fresh problems - aside from the ongoing rehabilitation of defender Jose Enrique.      

Rodgers added: "In terms of the squad, everyone is fine and everyone is fit. The condition of the team is very good; we are looking forward to the game. Only Jose Enrique is still out."
