Reds need four more wins to win the league.
Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers has warned his players not to loom “too far ahead” as the Merseyside giants go in search of their first top-flight title since 1990 after a 3-2 win over rivals Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday lunch time, according to reports on BBC Sport Online.

The Reds’ win over City moved Rodgers and Co seven points clear of their opponents, albeit having played two more games than their rivals, and now four more league wins in their remaining games of the campaign will see the club crowned as unlikely champions for the very first time since 1990.
However, the Northern Irishman was quick to point out that there are still “a lot of points to play for” after the full-time whistle on Sunday, while Liverpool also still have to host second-placed Chelsea in two weeks’ time in a match that could ultimately decide the outcome of the title.
“My message to the players is to continue. We don’t need to change,” added Rodgers.
“We showed a great mentality. The group is very, very tight. There has to be a cause to fight for and you could see that intensity.”
