Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has warned his players that Manchester City’s recent dip in form is evidence that they cannot take anything for granted in the title run-in, the Guardian
The Reds have won 10 Premier League games in a row and are now favourites to lift the trophy on May 11. They have four games left, beginning at struggling Norwich City on Sunday, but Rodgers believes that Man City’s form, which has seen them take just one point from a possible six, serves as a reminder to his side.
The Northern Irishman said: “I said to the players before we started training this morning that if there was doubt about our rivals dropping points, then they should also take the other night’s results as a warning sign.
“It was a warning sign for everyone that, at this point of the season with four games to go, there is nothing guaranteed and I have said that all the way along. Crystal Palace had an excellent result and Sunderland were within minutes of getting a great victory. That was the biggest message I got. Yes, one of our rivals might have dropped points but that is irrelevant. You have to do your own job. The warning signs are there.”
Following the game at Carrow Road, Liverpool take on nearest rivals Chelsea in a potential title decider, before they end their season with fixtures against mid-table duo Crystal Palace and Newcastle United.
