Liverpool will continue to play with no fear, vows Brendan Rodgers
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers promises his Reds side will play the final four games without fear
Brendan Rodgers insists Liverpool will continue to play with no fear despite the overbearing pressure of being Premier League leaders.
Philippe Coutinho sealed a dramatic 3-2 victory over Manchester City at Anfield after David Silva and a Glen Johnson own goal had cancelled out first-half goals from Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel.
We’ll play with no fear. We demand to dominate the ball and work very hard
Liverpool have won 10 successive Premier League games and are a point ahead of Chelsea and seven points clear of City, although the Citizens have played two games less than the league leaders.
The Reds make the trip to relegation contenders Norwich City next Sunday, and Rodgers backed his Liverpool players to continue to play in the same manner despite more pressure being heaped on their shoulders.
“We don’t need to change, we play with no fear,” Rodgers said. “We see that, no matter who we play, if it’s a big opponent like Manchester City, or Norwich next week.
“We’ll play with no fear. We demand to dominate the ball and work very hard. We don’t think too far ahead – that’s the message and that’s always been the message.
“With four games to go, there are still a lot of points to play for. And Manchester City have got a couple of games in hand as well. We’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves and keep doing the job.
“Hopefully 10 games becomes 11 next week. We’ll just concentrate on the next game.”
