Brendan Rodgers insists he is unsurprised by Liverpool’s 10-game winning run in the Premier League.

The Reds have the chance to move five points clear of second-placed Chelsea after Jose Mourinho’s men suffered a shock 2-1 loss to Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

I came to Liverpool to be a winner. I didn’t come here to finish mid-table or anywhere else. You come here to win

Brendan Rodgers

Rodgers, whose side are bidding to win the English top-flight for the first time since 1990, feels the Reds are relishing their role as Premier League leaders.

“The exhilaration and how mobile we’ve been as a club this year has probably taken a lot of people by surprise,” Rodgers told beIN SPORTS.

“It certainly hasn’t taken me by surprise because I get the chance to work with the people here and I see the determination they have and the confidence I have in our way of playing.

“My objective is clear at this moment in time. My job when I came in here – I said to the owners – was to get us back into the Champions League, and once we can do that then we can concentrate on the other targets.

“Obviously, I came to Liverpool to be a winner. I didn’t come here to finish mid-table or anywhere else. You come here to win. Liverpool is a club that is synonymous with winning.

“As a player and as a coach and manager, everyone in football wants to test themselves at the highest possible level that they can in club football. But, obviously, we’re not there yet – we have to qualify first. And if we do that, then we will certainly embrace and enjoy it.”
