Brendan Rodgers believes that there is no pressure on Liverpool to win the Premier League title as they are the underdogs in the race.
The Reds have surprised everyone this season with their brilliant all round play and are currently one point behind league leaders Chelsea who they face at Anfield next month. Luis Suarez's form has been the deciding factor for Liverpool this season, with the striker scoring 28 goals thus far in the league while assisting 11.
Suarez has been ably assisted by Daniel Sturridge who has also crossed the 20 goal mark and has assisted in five goals. Together, the duo has combined to form a partnership which is regarded to be among the best in the history of the Premier League.
The Reds will take on Tottenham on Sunday as they look to keep the pressure on Chelsea and Manchester City who have also hit a rich vein of form coming into the latter half of the season.
Coming into the fixture, Rodgers believes that Tottenham should be the one under pressure, having spent a sizeable amount of money but currently are a long way off from challenging the title.
"I can tell from our perspective here that the players and the group are very relaxed, but focused. There's no expectation on us being where we are, so there's certainly no pressure on us. Tottenham were a team maybe looking to challenge the league title this season. They spent 100-odd million pounds on a group that was set up to challenge. But there's no pressure on us. We've shown that over the course of the season," Rodgers said.
The northern Irishman has completely transformed Liverpool after coming into the club and attributes it to the years of experience he had when working with the likes of Jose Mourinho and other top managers as an assistant.
"I suppose in terms of management, this would be my sixth season as a manager, but I've been stood on the touchline for 20-odd years. While going through the experiences I've gained this year, I've been able to put into practice things I've been working on for many years in youth football, reserve-team football, working across the world, playing for many different teams on different continents," he explained.
