Rodgers calls for calm

Boss Brendan Rodgers says it is important Liverpool keep their feet on the ground as they prepare for a huge game against Chelsea.

The Reds took another step closer to their first Premier League title as they defeated Norwich 3-2 at Carrow Road, but Rodgers says they cannot get carried away.

England World Cup hopeful Raheem Sterling scored twice and Uruguay hitman Luis Suarez broke the 30-goal barrier as the Reds moved five points clear of Chelsea, who they host at Anfield next weekend.

"You never get too carried away when you win, and you never get too disappointed when you lose," said Rodgers, whose side are now guaranteed a top-three finish and with it a return to the Champions League.

"You can't win every game, but dealing with the expectancy is all part of being at a huge club like Liverpool. All I know is my players give me everything and I cannot ask for any more. For me, that is what is important.

"Now it will be about recovering. It is going to be a brilliant game next weekend with Chelsea coming to Anfield. The supporters will be right up for it and the team will look forward to it."

Liverpool are now nine points clear of Manchester City, who are third with two games in hand, one of which is against West Brom at the Etihad Stadium this evening.
