Rodgers: Liverpool can win the title

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is sure his side can challenge for the Premier League title this season, ESPN has reported, after the Reds overcame Stoke City in a high-scoring encounter.

The match finished 5-3 with Liverpool’s goals coming from a Luis Suarez brace, a Ryan Shawcross own goal, a Steven Gerrard penalty and a late Daniel Sturridge finish. Stoke, meanwhile, found the net through former Liverpool pair Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam, and Merseyside-born Jon Walters.

Rodgers feels that the attacking display on show at the Britannia Stadium is a sign his team can compete at the top of the table for the rest of the season. “We entered into the game today, 18 games to go, nine at home, nine away, knowing seven of those nine away were against teams in the bottom half,” he said.

“That doesn't mean they are gimmes by any means - it is a very tough league - but certainly we have shown enough that we are going to be challenging and that is all we ever wanted to be.

“We never stated we are going to win the league, to jump from where we have been at, we just needed to be in the conversation.”

The win over Stoke leaves Liverpool in fourth place, a point and a place above near neighbours Everton. They trail league leaders Manchester City by five points following City's Sunday win over Newcastle United.
