Liverpool are three points off third place in the Premier League.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has reminded his players that their two-day break represents nothing but a small breather with the same previous intensity required for the remainder of the season.
The Reds remain in the hunt for the FA Cup and are fighting to retain their place as a Champions League club, but showed signs of wilting against Blackburn on Sunday.
Rodgers claimed his team were tired, hence the flat performance, and is hoping that the short break can reignite the type of intensity he wants his team to play with until the end of the campaign.
“The players have two days off after everything they’ve put in over this period,” Rodgers said (via Mirror Football).
“And they deserve that because they have put so much effort into getting us into the position that we’re in. But after that, we’ll recover and be ready to go again.”
In terms of Premier League games, Liverpool’s next three fixtures could determine their chances of a top four finish as they travel to Arsenal and host Man United in successive weeks.
