Brendan Rodgers on Steven Gerrard's injury and a top four finish


Boss Brendan Rodgers says his Liverpool side is finally getting back to its best.

The Reds struggled in the early stages of the season, especially in November where they suffered four straight defeats in all competitions.

But they are now back at their very best and the Northern Irishman is convinced that his players will keep fighting for a top four finish.

"It takes a little bit of time to get going and bringing in a certain method of play," Rodgers said during today's press conference.

"We had to stay strong during a tough moment. We've found the solutions and we're playing at a high level.

"It's [The top four battle is] tight.

"Arriving in there has always been our objective, we want to keep chasing right to the end.

"Every game is super competitive and every team has got quality. We are going into every game respecting the opponent but believing we can win."

Asked to give an update on the hamstring injury suffered by captain Steven Gerrard against Tottenham Hotspur last month, the manager said: "He's coming along very well.

"He's building up strength in his hamstring. He's been outside, so he's working very hard, and we hope that in the very near future, he'll be back and available."
