BR BACKS LIVERPOOL
Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers has stated that his club will continue charging for the Premier League title and according to him, the squad has enough talent and quality to do it.
"Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea are based around Champions League squads," the Liverpool manager said. "They have been in there religiously and they have got a lot of depth that they can call upon. But if we have the fortune to stay clear of injury and whatnot, I would put our team up against anyone. I would never give up the fight.
"Of course, the challenge is to get to fourth. Once you can do that, it is all about seeing if you can go beyond that. But I will never give up the fight for the title with the games we have got to go and the confidence we have in the team. In terms of the message the manager transmits to the squad, I've always tried to be optimistic. We work hard on that and the consequences are the results on the field and gaining confidence.
"It's a long way to go, but you can see it's an open Premier League so the team that can make the least amount of mistakes and continue to evolve can hopefully win out at the end. We know where we are heading and the direction we are going and at the moment we are going in the right way."
In this Premier League season Liverpool kicked of the initial stages of the campaign by claiming victories against Stoke City, Aston Villa and Manchester United. They were at the top of the Premier League for some time but a number of defeats against Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City have seen them dropping a few spots but still maintaining themselves at the top 5 spots of the top tier league of England.
