Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has reminded his side that they can take nothing for granted after Manchester City’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland, Sky
With just four games left of the season for the Reds, they sit top of the Premier League table, two points ahead of Chelsea and now six points ahead of Manchester City.
Liverpool travel to Norwich on Sunday and know they can secure a first title win in 24 years if they win all their remaining games.
“Two things came out of last night for me,” Rodgers said. “It showed the level of performance in our game against Sunderland (which Liverpool won 2-1 earlier this month).
“We were very good in the game until the last 15 minutes when Sunderland had a little bit of pressure but we were able to manage the game and get the three points which was important.
“And I think last night was also a warning sign, a warning sign for everyone that at this point of the season with four games to go there is nothing guaranteed and I’ve said that all the way along.
Rodgers admitted that his side’s focus has always been on the next game and have never been looking at what may lie beyond a victory at Norwich.
Now his side can secure Champions League football if they secure the three points they so desperately crave with the trip to Carrow Road.
“There’s no added pressure. There’s no less or more pressure than what we had then (at the start of the season).
“We’ll still look to win the game at the weekend and we’re still in touch with reality in terms of where we’re at.
“We’ve made great progress this season and our objective of trying to qualify for the Champions League was always going to be very difficult one because of the competitive nature of the league.
“But we’re still on course for that and if we get a win at the weekend that will rubber-stamp for us.”
