The Baggies host the Capital One Cup holders in a third round clash at The Hawthorns and the 29-year-old is anxious to be given the chance to impress.
The Sweden international joined Albion in the summer and has made just one start at Yeovil in addition to three substitute appearances in the Premier League.
And Rosenberg is ready to show his attacking instincts against the Reds now that he is feeling fully fit.
"It would be great to start as I played 15 minutes on Saturday and hopefully I will get a chance to start against Liverpool," he told West Brom's official website.
"It has been a long time since I started a game but I've had one game with the under-21s and I also played at Yeovil in the last round so hopefully I will get another chance against Liverpool.
"I had quite a few defensive duties when I came on Saturday against Reading and the gaffer wanted to close out the game.
"That's part of the job. I didn't really show my attacking side and hopefully I will get a chance to show that tonight.
"The team is doing fantastically and the gaffer cannot change too much at the moment.
"I came here with a lot of rest behind me so I was not really fit, but now I have trained well for a couple of weeks and made a couple of appearances.
"I feel good in training but training is one thing and playing is another. I need more game time."
Liverpool will be hoping to put their league form behind them having made their worst start to a campaign in over 100 years but Rosenberg will not be guilty of underestimating Brendan Rodgers' side.
"Liverpool are always dangerous, even though they didn't have the start you would expect them to have," he added.
"They will maybe make some changes and maybe some fresh players will come in.
"Liverpool are the same as us and they have a big strong squad and they will be tough as ever."
