Brendan Rodgers thinks his side could get used to life at the top of the table…
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has given a warning to the chasing pack that his side will not give up their position at the top of the Premier League table without a fight, reports the Mirror.
Liverpool currently occupy first place after four games, with three wins and a draw from their opening four matches, but this will not come as a surprise to anyone who studied their form towards the end of last season.
In their last 16 Premier League outings, Liverpool have only lost once – interestingly to this weekend’s opponents Southampton. The Reds fell 3-1 to Mauricio Pochettino’s side back in March, but have been in scintillating form ever since.
When questioned by reporters on whether he was pleased his side sat at the top of the league, Rodgers answered in jovial fashion.
“You’d rather be there than be at the bottom!” he said.
Rodgers promised though that his side was enjoying their position, and would do whatever it takes to keep winning matches.
“What it does is that the more you are up there, the more aggression and will and desire you have to stay there,” said Rodgers, whose Liverpool side earned a hard-fought draw away to Swansea on Monday evening.
“Coming here, there was no consistency in the performance and 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 at Swansea,” he said.
“But I believe we will get better and more fluent as the season goes on so we are happy to be there and it gives us a fight to stay there.”
