The Reds are three points clear at the top of the table and Benitez is confident that his side can continue to go from strength to strength.

Chelsea and Manchester United are ahead of Liverpool with the bookmakers.

"I don't care about this," he said on Sky Sports News. "I just concentrate on our football and try to be there as much as we can.

"You can see that Chelsea are very, very strong, United and Arsenal as well.

"Aston Villa are pushing, so we have some strong teams and it will be the same until the end of the season."
