‘Our only focus is ourselves’ – Liverpool boss Rodgers targeting positive run-in

The 40-year-old wants his side to overcome the inconsistency which has tainted his first season at Anfield in order to go into the next campaign full of confidence

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has insisted his side are focusing solely on themselves as they enter the latter stages of the Premier League season.
The Reds have been plagued by inconsistency this term and find themselves 10 points short of fourth-placed Tottenham, who occupy the final Champions League qualification place.

And, with a late dash for fourth looking unlikely for the Merseyside club, Rodgers is simply hopeful his side can use a good run-in as a “springboard” for the beginning of next season.

“We have got 11 games to go and our only focus is on ourselves – we just look at our next game,” he told reporters.

“Especially how the season has gone for us: we have been brilliant at times and inconsistent at others.

“If we can come up with that consistency over these closing months it will provide a springboard for next season.

“Finish this season as strong as we possibly can, as high as we can, and then we’ll be in a much better place come the summer to really push on.”
