Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed he does not believe his side will win the Premier League title this season, according to Sky Sports.

The Reds currently hold the final Champions League spot on 47 points but are six points behind second and third place Chelsea and Manchester City and a further two from leaders Arsenal.

The 41-year-old has said that he does not think his team are ready for a proper Premier League title challenge, at least not this season.

“I think for us, as a team, it's too early for that,” said Rodgers.

“I was at the Manchester City-Chelsea game the other night and I look at the squads they have, which they have built up over the last few years. And it's very difficult for us, even though we have competed right the way through the season.

“So, I wouldn't say for us this year, no. We wouldn't be challengers for it.”

Despite discounting his team as title challengers, Rodgers feels Liverpool could still have a large part to play in the title race with Saturday’s upcoming match against league leaders Arsenal.

Liverpool will also host vital clashes against City and Chelsea in April when the title race will take a crucial turn with just a few games remaining till the end of the season.

“Will we play a part in it? Yes, we will, because we are professional and we want to fight to finish as high as we possibly can,” added Rodgers.

“We look it and there are six points between us and (second-placed) Chelsea, so there is still a lot to play for and we will be fighting right until the very end.”
