Brendan Rodgers: Liverpool boss is 'taking one game at a time'

With four games played, the Reds are one point clear of north London duo Arsenal and Tottenham but, with 34 matches remaining, Rodgers is not looking too far ahead.

Liverpool last won the League Championship in 1990 and Rodgers insists: "I haven't even considered a title challenge. The only focus is the next game.

"We'll assess it after 10 games, see where we sit then, and then again at the halfway point when we'll probably have a more realistic idea of where we can be.

"At this moment, we've played four - won three and drawn one - and we're in a good moment.

"There's a lot more to come. We've made a good start. People will talk that it is early stages, as will I, but these are hurdles you have to get over.

"We're on 10 points already and at the end of last season we finished on 61 points and we talked about those extra 10 points that might have taken us into the Champions League - at this early stage we've got them.

"I believe the team has still got a lot of improvements to make because of the nature of what I've seen in the games and the potential we have in the players.

"We've got to sustain that but I'm really happy that in these early stages we've shown at least potential - potential that can grow even more."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
