Brendan Rodgers has expressed his delight at Liverpool’s 100 per cent start to the Premier League season – but warned his players that they cannot afford to get carried away as the Reds look to break back into the top four.

Liverpool are top of the Premier League table after three games of the new campaign, having recorded successive 1-0 victories over Stoke City, Aston Villa and defending champions Manchester United.

But although the Northern Irishman has been thrilled by his side’s attitude in their opening fixtures, the Reds boss knows that there is still a “long way to go” as he looks to steer the Merseysiders back into the Champions League.

“It’s been a great start for us but we can’t get carried away,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

“We had a difficult start to last season but since January our form has been outstanding. I have to say the players have been magnificent with the work they have put in.

“We had a really good pre-season when we had the whole squad together working well and that ensured we were well prepared.

“If you work your socks off then talent comes through and we need to keep working in this way going forward.

“The players have already demonstrated so far this season that they have that resilience to keep fighting and persevere to get the result.

“There is a long way to go this season but we’re really looking forward to the challenge.”
