Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers still feels his club will be right there at the end of the season fighting for the title despite back to back loses against Manchester City and Chelsea.
When speaking after the Chelsea loss Rodgers told Sky Sports: “I think its open. Christmas Day eating our turkey we were top of the league.
“A few days and games later we’re fifth. I think that’s the way it will go between now and the end of the season.
“I think it’s brilliant and it makes it really exciting.
“We’ve shown in the first 19 games this season that if we get players back, get some help in January with a few more players, we can be in the shake up here.
“Liverpool was never in the conversation for the last few years. At least now we’re being recognised in terms of what we’re trying to do and our work.
“Hopefully we can add to it and get some depth to the group, because that is something that really helps you in the second part of the season.”
