Brendan Rodgers: Has Liverpool back in the hunt for European qualification

The 2012/13 campaign has been a slow-burner for the Anfield outfit, but they appear to have hit their stride at just the right time.

Three straight wins, including an impressive 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last time out, have fired Liverpool into the race for UEFA Champions League qualification - or a Europa League place at worst.

The Reds are still seven points off the pace at present, but Rodgers says they will be ready to pounce if those above them start to wobble heading down the final straight.

He said: "The teams above will know they can't be making any slip-ups - not only because of us, but for themselves.

"This is the stage of the season when you want to win games, and you have to win them.

"Our recent run of form shows without doubt we're a team which is improving and developing.

"The result against Tottenham showed the further enhancement of that, and we have to maintain that form to keep moving forward."

Concentrate

Rodgers added: "People know now we're a different team compared to the start of the season, for sure.

"There is a different mentality now, but there is no point in us getting carried away and looking too far ahead.

"We can only concentrate on ourselves and get as many victories as we can."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
