After Liverpool's 3-2 win over Manchester City, Brendan Rodgers believes that the Reds can continue playing the same way and eventually end up with the title, according to reports.

The manner in which Steven Gerrard's men handled pressure was commendable and the crowd at Anfield had come with so much optimism that the home side could have easily failed on the big occasion. But really, one has to give credits to them as they never really looked too worried. Liverpool are now sitting pretty at the top of the table and are well on the way to winning their first domestic title since 1990.

"We've been put under pressure in a very big game against a big opponent but you can see from our football that we are coping," said Rodgers.

"My message to the players is to continue. We don't need to change."

Rodgers' team are now two points ahead of Chelsea, who are yet to visit Anfield. With 10 wins on the trot, many are tipping them to upset the apple cart and finish the job when Jose Mourinho's men come to town.

"I give a lot of credit to the players. Our performance level, particularly in the first half, was quite sensational," the Reds boss continued.

"In the second half, we expected City to come back into it because they are a wonderful team with quality players and an outstanding manager in Manuel Pellegrini.

"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."

The next match for the Reds would be the away clash against Norwich City, a game that on paper they should win rather easily. 

Rodgers said: "We played with no fear. You can see that, whether it is the big opponent like Manchester City or at Norwich City next week.

"Manchester City have still got a couple of games in hand, but to win 10 successive games in the Premier League is a great achievement, and hopefully 10 will become 11 next week."
