Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers hopes for a "little bit of luck" in title race

Brendan Rodgers hopes that Liverpool can get a "little bit of luck" in their Premier League title campaign.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes that his team will need a "little bit of luck" to lift the Premier League title this season.

The Merseyside outfit are currently at the top of the table with a two-point lead over Chelsea.

Despite the team being just five wins away from securing their first league title since 1990, Rodgers has insisted that the main priority has always been to return to the Champions League.

"It's been a long time without winning the league, but the most important thing, first and foremost, was to get into the Champions League because I know what that brings to the club, economically," Rodgers told reporters. "It's a real uplift.

"That's the concentration, and if we get that little bit of luck and keep working as we have been in the last five games, hopefully the fans dreams will come true."

The Reds will take on Manchester City, who are four points behind with two games in hand, at Anfield on Sunday.
