Rodgers, Liverpool,

Liverpool is off to a flyer this season unbeaten in their first three games with new goalkeeper Simon Mignolet the proud owner of three clean sheets. If you had asked Reds fans before the start of the season how they would expect to see the team finish most would have said that it would probably take another year before they would be in a position to challenge for a Champions League spot.

This now has all changed with fans starting to believe that the club can challenge for the title, a huge credit to the work manager Brendan Rodgers has installed in his team.

“It’s been a great start for us but we can’t get carried away,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

“We had a difficult start to last season but since January our form has been outstanding. I have to say the players have been magnificent with the work they have put in. We had a really good pre-season when we had the whole squad together working well and that ensured we were well prepared.

“If you work your socks off then talent comes through and we need to keep working in this way going forward. The players have already demonstrated so far this season that they have that resilience to keep fighting and persevere to get the result. There is a long way to go this season but we’re really looking forward to the challenge.”
