Style matters for Liverpool boss Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers has said that more than wanting to win the Premier League title with Liverpool, he wants to do it in the right style, ESPN has reported.

The Reds lead the table by two points from Chelsea, their nearest challengers and a future opponent at Anfield. But Liverpool have scored almost 30 goals more than the Blues - and five more than third-place Manchester City, who have 88 to Liverpool’s 93. Chelsea, by contrast, have 66 and Arsenal, who round out the top for, have 59.

Rodgers has revealed he puts equal importance on Liverpool’s disciplinary record, with his side top of the Fair Play League as well as the league standings. “We will try to do it in the right way - I take great pride in winning in the most sporting way we can,” the manager told the Daily Mirror.

“If you look at us we are top of the Premier League and we are top of the Fair Play League. We don't surround referees. We want to win, but it shows you a mark of our behaviour.

“They are the values of this club. It's a club that has won many trophies in the past but had the humility and the class. One word I always had in my mind when I joined Liverpool is 'class.' So that is important to me - that those values are restored.

“I believe you can't affect refereeing decisions. Absolutely. There will be little bits of luck that go for and against you but I like to think as a sporting team and a team that's trying to work well we've got our rewards this year.”

Liverpool next travel to relegation-threatened Norwich City having beaten the Canaries 5-1 at Anfield earlier in the season. Luis Suarez scored four goals in the December win and has a total of 11 in five games against Norwich.
