Rodgers told reporters: "I could speak all day about the games against City and Chelsea, but there really is no point looking beyond the next game. That's West Ham. It's a big game. They are in good form, with six wins out of nine, and they will be difficult opponents.
"If you look too far ahead, it gets too daunting. When you climb a mountain, you climb it in stages. You don't do it in one hit. We divide our season into chunks of games and after West Ham we will be into the last of a block of five games.
"Once we reach that point, we will look at the next block and see what we need. It really is done on a game-by-game basis from that point."
Liverpool face West Ham at Upton Park later today.
