Premier League - Rodgers again dismisses title talk

As far as everyone but Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is concerned, the Merseyside club are definite contenders to win the most open Premier League title race for years.

Privately, perhaps, Rodgers may share that view although he was certainly giving nothing away publicly after his team chalked up a fourth straight league success with a 3-0 victory at Southampton on Saturday that put them second behind Chelsea.

When asked what Liverpool need to do in their last 10 games to win the league, Rodgers grinned and side-stepped the issue.

"There are 10 games to go now and we will just see where they take us," he told Sky Sports.

"I don't know how many of those games we have to win to win the title - I'm taking the easy way out - I am not going to give you an answer," he laughed.

"I just want to enjoy watching the team and we just want to win the next game. That's our focus.

"We are just concentrating on what we are doing. Everyone speaks about Chelsea and Manchester City and Arsenal and rightly so, they are three teams that have been up there for a number of years. We just want to keep improving."

Liverpool have been doing that under Rodgers all season and although City and Chelsea remain favourites to occupy the top two spots, Liverpool clearly are very much in the mix no matter what Rodgers might like everyone to believe.
