Liverpool morning news, Flanagan says rivals may worry, Rodgers hasn't banned title talk

A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Monday morning.

Unsurprisingly a lot of the news surrounding Liverpool Football Club this morning covers their 3-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford yesterday.

Young full-back Jon Flanagan has said that Liverpool’s comprehensive victory could provide a fear factor to opponents when they face the Reds, and that their title rivals could be worried.

Flanagan told the Liverpool Echo: “It doesn’t get much better for me being a local lad and helping Liverpool win 3-0 at Old Trafford.

“We have put down a marker today. Momentum is building. I’m sure the other clubs up there will be worried after this result but we are just concentrating on ourselves.

“We all believe we can do it. We just need to keep pushing on. All the lads know we haven’t achieved anything yet.”

Manager Brendan Rodgers has said he hasn’t banned talk of a title challenge in the Liverpool dressing room.

The Reds are now four points behind Chelsea, who are top, with a game in hand – but the destiny of the Premier League remains in the hands of Manchester City – who trail Chelsea by six points with three games in hand.

Rodgers is quoted in the Daily Express, saying: “We have better things to talk about.

“It is about improving and getting better. I don’t lose sleep over it.

“We are up there on merit so of course we have an opportunity.”

On to a transfer rumour and the Daily Star have reported that Liverpool have made an enquiry over the services of Levante goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

The Costa Rican is reported to have an £8m escape clause in his contract.
