Rodgers: Liverpool a Serious Title Contender

MOST COMMENTED

Liverpool on Wednesday moved within four points of Premier League leader Chelsea after a dramatic 3-2 come-from-behind win against Fulham at Craven Cottage. Reds coach Brendan Rodgers said his team should now be considered a serious title contender after both Chelsea and Arsenal dropped two points in their midweek games.

"We're going to keep pushing," Rodgers said. "We've shown enough times we're a very good side. We're chasing and there are other teams still ahead of us, so we'll need some of them to drop points, but we know we still have City and Chelsea to play at home. This was a very important win for us, coming after the game at the weekend when we'd been outstanding [in beating Arsenal 5-1]. We had to show different qualities tonight: character, togetherness as a group, as we kept pushing to the end.”

He added: "We've defended poorly at times this season, mistakes and individual errors that have cost us, but we're a very aggressive and offensive team going forward and we showed that again. There's still a long way to go, 12 games, but you've seen the development of the team in terms of character and focus out there. We had to dig deep. There's great character there and the belief in what we're doing is very high."
