Liverpool boss believes title still out of reach

The title is within reach for the fans, but Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits his focus isn’t on winning the title, but only as far as their next challenge, according to The Mirror.

The Liverpool supporters’ belief of finally clinching the Premier League title is high all around Anfield, as Liverpool  thrashed Tottenham Hotspur 4-0, but the Liverpool manager dismissed any claims that his current focus is winning the title.

Youanes Kaboul put in an early own goal to give the Reds the lead, before Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho, and Jordan Henderson all scored to cap off a memorable night.

But Rodgers is keen on only focusing on the next Sunday’s game against West Ham, as he is looking no further despite recording eight wins in eight games.

“The dream is for our supporters, they want to win the title,” he said. “It has been a long time but it’s not in my thinking.

“We just need to prepare and do well and if we do that, we will win games.

“We have won eight games in a row and we will enjoy that. It’s just about going back to work next week and we have a tough game against West Ham next.

“We just want to concentrate on the next game and that is what we will focus on.”

However, the manager had nothing but praise with his side now top of the league, while the result proved that it wasn’t luck and they have what it takes to go all the way.

“We were seventh last year so the expectation wasn’t there at the start of the season. Now we are up there at the top of the league with that pressure,” he said.

“Today we answered the question about pressure. We like to dominate the ball and you saw that today. The movement, confidence and composure was good. We fight as a team to get the ball back and overall I was very proud of the team.

“That is eight wins in a row and that takes some going at this level.”
