Brendan Rodgers knows that Liverpool have hard games ahead

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes that his side’s end of season games against Norwich City, Newcastle United and Crystal Palace will be anything but easy. The Northern Irishman does not want his team to drop their guard against any of the lower placed teams in the league as he hopes to end Liverpool’s 24-year long wait for a league title.

Stating that teams fighting for relegation could make matters very hard for the Anfield club, Rodgers was quoted in Daily Mirror saying, “They are fighting for their livelihoods, fighting for their lives, fighting for their children, fighting for the supporters. And they’re fighting to play in the best league in the world. Teams can look that they are playing teams towards the bottom and think the games might be easy. But actually they can be even more difficult. It would be so easy to slip up at Norwich, Palace and home to Newcastle, absolutely.”

Should Liverpool win all their remaining 4 games, including a potentially title deciding clash against Chelsea at Anfield next weekend, the Premier League title is theirs for the taking. Even a draw in that game against the Blues and wins in the other 3 games will be enough to bring the title to Anfield, and Brendan Rodgers will be desperate to ensure that his team doesn’t drop points against the so-called lesser teams in the league.

The Reds are currently 2 points clear of Chelsea in second place, and will probably start as slight favourites in their clash against the Blues at Anfield, given their splendid run of form at their home ground this season.

  1. Liverpool are going to win the title this season but there is need to manage expectations and nerves. Crush the opposition as quickly as possible and make the game unreachable in the first half. Every player must contribute at this stage it doesn’t matter where the goals come from. At this stage even a draw and three win would do it but let’s win in style!!!
    I see a situation where winning the title for Liverpool is not going to be as difficult as people anticipate. Chelsea will drop more points so will City. I think even Liverpool will also drop some points before the end if the season but its still going to be enough for us to win the title in the end! Chelsea will draw a game or two, City will lose one more, Liverpool will either lose or draw one! So in the end we will still win it. Keep Calm and support Liverpool to Deliver the trophy! YNWA
