Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool are looking forward to the final 10 matches of the season, after beating Burnley to move back up to fifth in the table.

Goals from Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge made it seven wins from eight in the Premier League for Rodgers side – who remain the only team unbeaten in 2015.

The Reds currently sit just two points outside the top four, and Rodgers says he is relishing the final run in with his side the form team in the country.

“Over the last three months the games have been coming thick and fast, but the players have stood up to that,” the Northern Irishman said.

“They have achieved the objectives that we wanted to. Now we arrive with 10 league games to go and it’s a period of the season that we’re going to really look forward to.

“The nature of our game is based on the confidence to play, to pass and to move. You can see, aligned with that, the pressing in our game is very good.

“We’ve put ourselves in a very good position, but there’s still a lot of work to go. At this moment in time, thankfully we’re at a good level and we’ll continue with that.”

Rodgers was pleased with the performance and the result on Wednesday evening, in a game that followed Sunday’s impressive 2-1 win over Manchester City.

“I thought it was an excellent performance,” continued Rodgers. “I think Burnley have showed this year that they are a very difficult team to play against, especially when they play on their travels.

“But as good as our performance was at the weekend, this was equally as good in a different way. The organisation defensively was very good. They had one shot on target and they have players who can cause you a problem.

“We scored two goals and had opportunities to make the game more comfortable. It was a very professional display and I’m delighted with the performance and the result.”
