Although Liverpool boasted one of the meanest defences in the league last season, it was often their failure to hit the back of the net that cost them victories and valuable points. Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo that he expects the current squad to be more threatening upfront, in addition to their stability in defence.
"The goalkeeper is one of the leading ones in the world, the back four are top international players, really good players, and (we have) a young midfield that can play," Rodgers said.
"Then I look at the potential of the front four in terms of Borini, Suarez, Gerrard and Downing and you've got pace, power, creativity and hunger, so I'm excited about going forward."
The former Swansea manager was appointed to the helm in place of Reds favourite Kenny Dalglish. However, Rodgers insisted the team have not forgotten Dalglish's contributions and he planned for them to honour the Scot on the field.
"Kenny Dalglish gave the best years of his footballing and managerial life to Liverpool FC and will never be forgotten," Rodgers stated.
"My aim is to remember the greats of this club such as Kenny and those before him, to produce a team that not only wins but does so in a style which for generations has been known as 'the Liverpool Way'."
