Liverpool manager rejects talk of Premier League top four finish
Liverpool might have won the Carling Cup and reached the final of the FA Cup last season although it was still a campaign regarded as a failure, with the Reds finishing eighth in the table and 17 points off fourth place and a Champions League spot.

After a slow start, Brendan Rodgers’ team are starting to build a head of steam and sit in tenth place after Sunday’s 3-2 win at Upton Park which sees Liverpool just four points behind fourth-placed Everton.
There are any number of teams that will fancy a top four finish this season although Liverpool demonstrated on West Ham that they could score goals and win games without Luis Suarez, although Brendan Rodgers is staying calm about the prospect of Champions League football.
Rodgers said: “We are just trying to build our momentum. We had a difficult opening fixture list and coupling that with trying to play a certain way of football was always going to be difficult.
“Certainly over the past couple of months we have been progressing and just let’s see where we finish.
“This is one of the biggest clubs in world football and everybody knows where it should be but we are making steady progress and climbing the league and it is important for us to do that.”
