Anfield Kop

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

Liverpool right-back Jon Flanagan has said the side will not get carried away after their 3-2 win over Manchester City put them in pole position to win the Premier League title.

Steven Gerrard issued a rallying call to his players immediately after their huge win in what was billed as a title decider at Anfield yesterday, and Flanagan said they will respond to it when they travel to Norwich City next weekend.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “Stevie said in the huddle that we need to go again next weekend at Norwich and he’s right.

“We haven’t achieved anything yet and we all know that. Man City is gone and it’s about the next game.”

The Reds will assess the severity of Daniel Sturridge's hamstring injury after he was substituted during yesterday's game.

Manager Brendan Rodgers, said: “We’ll see how he is over the next couple of days. He felt a wee bit of tightness in his hamstring, so we’ll just see how that is in the next couple of days.”

Captain Steven Gerrard has told the Liverpool website he will give everything in the final four games of the season, and said the early stages of yesterday's win over City was the best Liverpool had played all season.

Gerrard said: "For the first 30-35 minutes, I thought we blew the so-called best team in the league away. And it could have been three or four.

"I don't think 2-0 is ever enough against the top sides in this league. But it's all about getting the job done, no matter how you do it, and thankfully we got it done in the end.

"I'm enjoying it, it's great to play with so many top players. The journey I've had all the way through the years, there have been ups and downs. At the moment, I'm loving every minute of it."
