Brendan Rodgers: We're in a "brilliant position"

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers wants his players to enjoy the "brilliant position" that they are currently in.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has called for his players to enjoy the "brilliant position" they are in as the Premier League run-in reaches its climax.

The table-topping Reds were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea on Sunday to hand the initiative to Manchester City, but the Northern Irishman said that he has reminded his squad of their achievement after an 11-game winning streak was halted by Jose Mourinho's side.

The Mirror quotes him as saying: "We want to win, of course, and we are in a brilliant position. But we must enjoy it - this is brilliant, the supporters are loving it, we are showing the real scale of the club and what these players are about, and that is just as important.

"It's good to be involved in this and it's the only way you gain experience. No matter where we finish, we will look to build on it, and press on from this position.

"We will embrace it. We still have work to do. We will go again and progress from here, but we are enjoying this position."

Liverpool travel to Crystal Palace on Monday evening.
