All the latest news and views from Anfield.

Liverpool took command over the rest of the Premier League yesterday, Sunday, as, one day after Chelsea's shock loss to Crystal Palace, Brendan Rodgers' Reds oversaw Tottenham Hotspur with ease at Anfield after a Younes Kaboul own goal, a Luis Suarez strike, a 25-yarder from Philippe Coutinho and a Jordan Henderson free-kick conversion.

The 4-0 triumph not only sees Liverpool lead Chelsea by a two-point at the top of the table, after a 71-point haul after 38-games, but it also sees them four points ahead of third-placed Manchester City. Due to the nature of the fixture run-in, if Liverpool win every single one of their remaining six games - they win the title.

On the race for this year's crown, Rodgers told BBC: "We don't feel the pressure and we're very confident with how we play. The dream is for our supporters, they want to win the title. It has been a long time but it's not in my thinking. We just need to prepare and do well, and if we do that, we will win games.

"Chelsea and Manchester City understand Anfield will be a real tough place to come. We love playing here, the support was incredible and that will only intensify. We respect Chelsea - they have a world-class manager and a team that has been assembled to win the Champions League and the Premier League.

"Manchester City are one of the new superpowers in world football, but we feel we can win any game because we are a team, we have a lot of hunger and our tactical ideas are improving all the time."

Of Liverpool's six remaining games, three are at home. They begin April with a trip to West Ham United, then they host Man City, prior to Norwich City away, Chelsea at home, Palace away then, finally, Newcastle United at home.

On the support they receive at Anfield, Glen Johnson commented on the club's official website that: "At the moment, teams definitely can't be looking forward to coming to Anfield to play. Three years ago, people were not so worried. But I think we're getting it back to the name and the place that people see Anfield as.

"It's what we've been doing all season. We work hard and we try to put the opposition under pressure right from the beginning. It just shows how hard we have been working out on the training ground and on the pitch as well. We have tried to make it difficult for other teams and there's days like today when you score three or four goals and it's comfortable."

Meanwhile, Gerard Houllier, who had a 52% win ratio during his Liverpool tenure and collected a historic Treble in 2001, commended the tactical acumen and coaching credentials of Rodgers - a manager the Frenchman believes deserves title success.

"You've got to praise him for the work he's done and for the style of play he's given to the team," said Houllier in the Liverpool Echo.

"Also the type of players he's chosen. It's his team, it's his team, his own players. We have to give credit to Brendan because he's done a great job and he deserves a title, even if it looks early.

"If they finish top I will be very happy for all of them and for the fans. It looks as if there's a good combination of youth and experience. The youth are full of confidence but for me the most important factor is the quality of their play. The quality of their game is outstanding and that could win them the title."

And finally, here is a highlights clip of Sterling's performance versus Spurs. After the 4-0 drubbing of Spurs, Sterling spoke of hard work being the key on the Mersey: "The most important thing is the way we're working for each other. We're not just running headlessly, we're working as a unit and really perfecting that. We're putting teams on the back foot and then pressing really hard to counter-attack them.

"The boys are working really hard, day in and day out in training - you can see it paying off on the pitch. Everyone was pressing and working their socks off. I'm just really grateful to have been part of that team, because it's a credit to the lads - they were great."
