Benitez: All about managing Liverpool expectations

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has warned of the danger of getting carried away with his team's impressive start to the season. The Reds are unbeaten in the Premier League and are only behind leaders Chelsea on goal difference.

With the Reds beginning to show signs that they could be serious contenders Benitez admitted it is a situation which slightly concerns him.

"When you are playing well and winning games, with everyone talking about how good you are, it is important to calm down and get people talking only about the next game," he said.

"It is a dangerous when you hear people talking well about your team, then we have to make sure we do not listen to what is being said but just concentrate on the future.

"But it is better to manage expectations, like we are, than be bottom of the table and trying to motivate players."
