Liverpool morning news, Sterling on form and Chelsea clash, psychologist on working with Reds' boss

Raheem Sterling And Rodgers

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

Raheem Sterling has said that Liverpool will prepare for Sunday’s clash with Chelsea at Anfield like any other game they have done this season – and that they are prepared for what’s coming this week.

Sterling, who has been in impressive form in recent weeks, is quoted in the Daily Mirror, saying: “This is a really big part of the season and we will just go in there to fight again.

“We will just take it as another game. We won’t concentrate too much on what is happening outside, whatever comes, as we just want to take care of what is going on on the pitch.

“Now we want to get three more points. We come in every day, we see each other and we know what the dream is.”

Sterling added that the support of Brendan Rodgers playing him in different positions and having faith in him has a lot to do with his good form, which includes two goals from the weekend’s 3-2 win over Norwich City.

“He has had great faith and I am just glad I got a goal for him and a goal for the team.

“I knew there was a lot more to come from me. I just needed to have confidence and right now my confidence is sky high.”

Psychologist Dr Steve Peters has likened manager Brendan Rodgers to Sir Dave Brailsford from British cycling.

Brailsford has overseen great success with British Cycling, and Peters has described Rodgers as ‘magic’ to work with.

The Daily Mail picked up on an interview in the Radio Times, where Peters said: “He wants to make sure he’s got it right. He will question what I do, engage with it. To me, it is just magic to work with somebody like that. You work as a team again.

“And I can’t tell him what to do. He will say to me, “What do you suggest? What do you recommend?””
