Liverpool and Manchester City square off in a huge match up with Premier League title implications this weekend. Liverpool currently hold the top spot but Manchester City have played less games and a win would do a lot to help Liverpool get closer to that elusive title, and it might be the source of some nervousness but manager Brendan Rodgers says that sin’t the case.
“It’s a significant game, there is no doubt about that,” Rodgers said, via Sky Sports. “It’s two teams who have done extremely well this season in their own different ways and it should be a fantastic game of football.
“We are really looking forward to it. The team is confident and it should be fantastic.
“We are enjoying it and the players are very focused. We are calm and the training this week has been outstanding, so there have certainly been no nerves.
“There is talk about pressure and different types of words to describe it but, for us, it is exciting. We are really enjoying where we are.
“It is not by accident. Over the last 20 months we have been building to arrive at what we have and we are looking to try and sustain that over a longer period.”
