Brendan Rodgers: ‘Liverpool are not title contenders’
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has dismissed suggestions that his side are challenging for the title.
The Reds of top of the Premier League table after three wins and a draw from their first five games.
Despite their good form, Rodgers is not expecting to be sitting at the top of the table come the end of the season.
Asked if he would say going for the title was a possibility, he said: “No I wouldn’t, I haven’t even considered that at all, the only focus is really the next game.
“I think our expectancy is to improve as a team, you know the demand is for us to get ourselves fully right and prepared for the game at the weekend.
“We’ll assess it after 10 games, see where we sit there, then the halfway point and we’ll probably have a more realistic idea of where we can be.”
