Brendan Rodgers urges his Liverpool players to win the Premier League title "in the right way", by showing class and humility.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has urged his players to win the Premier League title "in the right way".

The Reds, who beat Manchester City 3-2 last time out, are currently top of the table with four games of the season remaining.

The victory at Anfield against the Citizens came with added controversy, however, as Luis Suarez was involved in another diving saga, but Rodgers insists that Liverpool will maintain their 'class' as they chase the club's first league title in 24 years.

"We will try to do it in the right way - I take great pride in winning in the most sporting way we can," the 41-year-old told The Mirror. "If you look at us we are top of the Premier League and we are top of the Fair Play League. We don't surround referees. We want to win, but it shows you a mark of our behaviour.

"They are the values of this club. It's a club that has won many trophies in the past but had the humility and the class. One word I always had in my mind when I joined Liverpool is 'class.' So that is important to me - that those values are restored.

"I believe you can't affect refereeing decisions. Absolutely. There will be little bits of luck that go for and against you but I like to think as a sporting team and a team that's trying to work well we've got our rewards this year."

Liverpool return to action on Sunday when they take on Norwich City at Carrow Road.
