Liverpool are atop the Premier League table with just six games remaining, and they can’t afford to drop any points now. They’re just two points ahead of Chelsea and four points ahead of Manchester City who have two games in hand. That means getting a win over a tough West Ham United side.
“I just feel a huge privilege to be here and be given the freedom to work,” Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said on the club’s official website. “We’re trying to make something that’s sustainable here, not just for this season. We’re trying to grow and develop this club.
“It’s fantastic the supporters now have hope because there are only six games to go. I enjoy it — it’s why I’ve worked hard all of my life since I was a young boy, travelling throughout Europe to find out about some of the top leagues and teams.
“I don’t think anybody expected us to be where we are. The last few seasons we have been eighth and we finished seventh last year. We go into every game to win and I expect it. What’s been great to see is that idea and methodology of our work bearing fruit in the game.
“There are still some great teams up there and some world-class managers. We understand it’s going to be very difficult, but we just control what we can do — and if we can do that, we’ll just see where it takes us.”
