Liverpool Will Fight To Stay Top

Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers, says the Reds will not give up on the top spot on the Premier League log without a fight.

The club’s major goal for the campaign is still to challenge for a top-four spot, and qualify for the Champions League next season.

But following their scrappy draw with Swansea on Monday night, they returned to the summit of the Premier League for at least another week, and Rodgers says they will do all they can to stay there for as long as possible.

With the pundits predicting perhaps the closest title race in Premier League history, it hardly seems crazy anymore to give Liverpool an outside chance of winning the whole shebang. And so Rodgers is encouraging his charges to get a taste for the rarefied air at the top of the table.

"The more you're up there at the top, the more aggression and will and desire you have to stay there,” he said.

"It's only four games in but we've had four tough games and we have only lost once in the last 17 games now.

"We are getting a level of consistency, and that was the biggest thing for me.

"When I came here last year, there was no consistency in the performance. But now we are just churning out wins and if we can't win we are drawing games with resilient performances, like in the last 25 minutes against Swansea.

"I still believe we will get better and more fluent as the season goes on, so we are happy to be top and we are ready for a fight to stay there."
