Rodgers cool over possible Liverpool title tilt

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is coy over Liverpool's chances of winning the title this season despite their 5-1 win against Arsenal. "We've still got a long way to go for me, in terms of where we want to go and where we want to be, but across the board it's very pleasing," the manager told the club website.

"We've got so many young players, who are still growing and developing and our squad is small. So I feel that we've still got work to do.

"But when we play like that and perform like that, people are obviously going to ask the question [can you win the league?].

"We're five points behind Arsenal, four behind Manchester City and six behind Chelsea and we still have them to play here at Anfield. But the main objective is just to finish as high as we possibly can and let's see where that takes us.

"Right the way through this season and throughout my time here, we've started to just chip away in our development and improve.

"It was another wonderful result for us (on Saturday) and what was particularly pleasing was the performance. It was an incredible display from a group of young men who are growing and getting better all the time. It was very pleasing."
