Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed his entire squad and cited teamwork as the reason for their remarkable goal scoring exploits this season.

After playing 35 matches, the Reds have scored 96 goals so far; surpassing their previous club-record in the Premier League era by 19 goals. They are seven goals short of equalling Chelsea's record number of goals scored in a season.

With the virtue of the number of goals netted, the Merseyside club have marched to the top of the league table with 80 points; leading second placed Chelsea by five points. Luis Suarez is Liverpool's and the league's top scorer this season with 30 goals while Daniel Sturridge stands second with 20 goals.

Rodgers also points out that his side's surge in form this season is because of the players other than the strikers who have had a hand in breaching opposition defence and racking up the goals.

"That's the beauty of us with our 96 league goals, it's about more than one player. When you look at the function of the team now, we've got players taking on responsibility right across the field. Everyone has made a contribution and that's been vital to the progress we've made," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

"Luis Suarez is a wonderful talent. He is world class and has had a great season. Daniel Sturridge has got big potential and I believe he will really flourish here over the next few years."

"Other players have improved. But what's been really positive for me is the threat we've been from different areas throughout the season. It means we're able to cause teams a lot of problems," he added.

Liverpool have not lost a single league fixture in 2014 and are three victories away from winning the title for the first time in 24 years.

Rodgers expressed his delight that owners Fenway Sports Group are happy with the club's achievements so far. However, the Northern Irishman insists that everyone is working together to ensure the Reds' growth in the current campaign does not fade away as a one-season wonder and gets replicated in the coming seasons.

"We wanted to establish something that would be in place for a long time. We don't want it to be just for this season, we want to sustain it over a longer period. That's something that was pretty clear for us all in the discussions we had when I came in," Rodgers explained.
