All the pressure is on Chelsea, claims Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that all the pressure will be on Chelsea when the two clubs play each other at Anfield in a critical match on Sunday, BBC Sport has reported.

Rodgers’ men are five points clear of Chelsea in the race for the title, and should they record a 12th successive victory on Sunday, they will be on the brink of becoming champions. On the other side of the coin, defeat for the visitors will end any lingering hopes of regaining the Premier League crown which they last won in 2010.

Many expect Liverpool to go on and win the title as everything is currently in their hands, but Rodgers believes that the pressure is on Chelsea, who are toying with the idea of fielding a slightly weakened team with Wednesday’s Champions League game against Atletico Madrid in mind.

He said: "Everyone talks about pressure but that is Manchester City or Chelsea - when you spend that sort of money and expect to win the league. I don't think there is pressure on ourselves, only what we have from within. Look at Tottenham - [when] you spend over £100m you'd expect to be challenging for the league.

"People talk about pressure but it's absolutely wonderful. I haven't slept better. It's why we work and whatever happens we'll have had a brilliant season. We will do the best we possibly can. At this moment, we have been absolutely outstanding."
