Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes that being "flexible tactically" has been key for Liverpool this season.

Brendan Rodgers has said that being "flexible tactically" has helped Liverpool reach the top of the Premier League table.

The Reds have won their last eight matches in the top flight, leaving them two points clear of Chelsea with six games still to play.

The manager told the club's website: "The structure of the team is good, we're flexible tactically so when I change they understand their job exactly.

"The style remains the same whatever system we play, it's to play with dominance and they have certainly shown that. I've talked before about the nature of our game.

"We play as a team. You see the confidence in the players, they have belief in how they're working, which is important, and belief that they can win big games. That gives them that extra bit of confidence going into football matches and they have got their rewards for it. But it has not been just this season, it was the second half of last season."
