As he prepares his side to take on Aston Villa on Saturday, Brendan Rodgers believes Liverpool can still have a major say in the title race. Back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea over the festive period have left the Reds behind both in the Premier League and six points off top side Arsenal. However, with Liverpool having since recovered with wins against Hull City and Stoke City, Rodgers maintains that his side has an opportunity to go the distance.

“We’ve got all those teams to play at home, and we’re only six points off the leaders, so you have to feel that we are, and we have the confidence and belief in ourselves,” he said, according to Liverpool’s official website.

“Of course, everyone will talk about the three clubs that’s there in front of us because they’ve got squads that have been around there for years and have big squads to choose from.

“We have to maintain our focus and concentration. You really have to push during the second half of the season and keep your standards high, not just on the games, but every day in training.”
