No talk of winning the title, says Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that there has been no talk of his side winning the Premier League title and is only focused on the next match, according to Sky Sports.

The Reds sit in second place, just four points behind leaders Chelsea and with a game in hand on the Blues.

Despite his side’s title chances, the 41-year-old has refused to speculate on the trophy and instead has turned his focus to relegation battlers Cardiff.

“The focus is purely on Cardiff City. We had a wonderful result and performance at Old Trafford, like you say, but there hasn’t been any talk of any title.

“The run-in for us is the next game, we’ve got tough games all the way through. We’ve got a very tough game against Cardiff.

“We’ve had some good results at home this season against some of the top teams but we know it’s going to be a tough game and we’ll speak about the run-in at the end of the season.”

The Merseyside club are on course for their first League title since 1990 but Rodgers refused to comment on how many points he thought would be needed to clinch the title.

Despite any possible glory, the Reds boss has stuck to his guns and insisted he is only looking at the next game and always the next game, regardless of the team’s excellent performances.

“It’s obviously your guys’ job to assess and analyse. For me it has always been about the next game,” added Rodgers.

“That might sound a bit boring, I maybe answer it in different ways, but it’s the reality of where we’re at.

“We can’t talk about Sunderland next Wednesday when we’ve got a massive game on Saturday at three o’clock so what is factual is that the team are a joy to watch at the moment!”
