Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers played down their title chances after victory at Tottenham.

With the result over Spurs, Liverpool closed the gap to Premier League leaders Arsenal to just two points - and the boss was naturally asked whether his team can challenge for the championship.

He responded: "I'm not even thinking about that, to be honest. My job was to try to develop the style of football, whilst moving the club forward.

"What we've tried to do is move every aspect of the club forward. Obviously you dream and I didn't come here to be fourth or third or second - eventually you want to win, but you've got to be realistic as well. Last year we were seventh.

"If we can stay clear of injury and just continue to improve our football and what we're trying to do, let's see where it takes us."
