Rodgers Confident

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits his team are confident ahead of their English Premier League clash against Manchester City.

City are set to take on Liverpool in a top of the table clash on Sunday at Anfield.

Liverpool currently top the standings with 74 points from 33 games, four points and two places above City who have two games in hand.

“It's a significant game, there is no doubt about that,” said Rodgers

“It's two teams who have done extremely well this season in their own different ways and it should be a fantastic game of football.

“We are really looking forward to it. The team is confident and it should be fantastic.

“We are enjoying it and the players are very focused. We are calm and the training this week has been outstanding, so there have certainly been no nerves.

“There is talk about pressure and different types of words to describe it but, for us, it is exciting. We are really enjoying where we are.

“It is not by accident. Over the last 20 months we have been building to arrive at what we have and we are looking to try and sustain that over a longer period.

“There is still a lot of work to do after this game.

“The finish line is still a way to go.

“For us, our focus is on the three points as, at the end of the day, that is all that comes out of the game.

“You will gain confidence, gain belief, but the three points is all we are after.

“There are five games to go and, even after this one, there are still 12 points to play for.”
