Brendan Rodgers admits he is happy with Liverpool’s progress over the past 18 months – but insists there is still a long way to go in their development.

The Reds are currently second in the Premier League following a promising start to the season, aside from a surprise 1-0 loss to Southampton at Anfield.

Rodgers replaced Kenny Dalglish at the Anfield helm in May 2012, and after an initial tough start, the Liverpool manager is happy with the progression made.

“It’s just the natural consequence of the work,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s website.

“I said similar last year, that I felt that the first months of the season would be about bedding in the principles of the game and as you continually repeat those and find different exercises to improve them, the natural consequence is that you become better.

“I believe it will be likewise this season. We bedded in a lot of our work, the development of our playing style, over the summer – it allowed us to make a good start.

“I feel that as a consequence of continuous work and continuous improvement, that will allow us to become better. Hopefully that proves to be the case.

“We still have a lot to improve on; we’ve won four games out of six, which is great for our confidence and belief and the spirit in the team is really good.

“We still have work to do in terms of our performance level consistently over the games. But I’m really happy that we’ve continued to carry on from last season and win games, make points.

“As we sit second, we still have a lot of development to do. At this moment in time, I’m relatively pleased, but there’s still a long way to go.”
