Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton admits challenging England's giants is all the more enjoyable as a Premier League player ahead of Saturday's game at Liverpool
Brendan Rodgers' men have already travelled to Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal this season without picking up a point but Britton says three points at Anfield would send a message to the rest of the league.
Britton admits picking up three points away to Liverpool will go a long way to solidifying the Swans' strong start in the top flight.
"It will be nicer to go there as a Premier League player than just a one-off cup game," said Britton.
"Years ago when we were in League One we hoped for a decent run in the cup to play one of the big teams, but our aim was always to get into the Premier League and play these teams week-in, week-out.
"It would be great if we could win against a big club like Liverpool at Anfield.
"It would send a massive message out to the rest of the league and move us three points further away from the teams at the bottom."
