Manchester City’s Premier League title hopes suffered a minor setback when they lost to Liverpool over the weekend. They took a bigger setback during the middle of the week when they lost to Sunderland. While Liverpool might be breathing a sigh of relief at the result, manager Brendan Rodgers is calling it a warning sign for his team.
“I think last night was also a warning sign, a warning sign for everyone that at this point of the season with four games to go there is nothing guaranteed and I’ve said that all the way along,” Rodgers said, via Sky Sports.
“That was the biggest message I got from last night. Yes one of our rivals might have dropped points but that is irrelevant you have to do your own job and as I said the warning signs were there.
“There’s no added pressure. There’s no less or more pressure than what we had then (at the start of the season).
“We’ll still look to win the game at the weekend and we’re still in touch with reality in terms of where we’re at.
“We’ve made great progress this season and our objective of trying to qualify for the Champions League was always going to be very difficult one because of the competitive nature of the league.
“But we’re still on course for that and if we get a win at the weekend that will rubber-stamp for us.”
