Jamie Redknapp is impressed with Liverpool’s current run of form in the Premier League.

Jamie Redknapp has pointed out in The Daily Mail an exceptional record boasted by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.

The Northern Irishman has lost just four Premier League matches after January 1 in a season as the Reds boss.

“After that brilliant win over Man City, Liverpool are bang in the race for the top four,” former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp wrote in The Daily Mail.

“And here is a stat to prove it. In his three years in charge, Brendan Rodgers has lost just four league games after January 1. That is some record.”

It is indeed “some record”, and one that was crucial in Liverpool launching a bid for the Premier League title last season.

The Merseyside outfit are out of the running for the league title this campaign, but they are very much in with a shout of finishing in the top four.

Heading into tonight’s clash against Burnley at Anfield, Liverpool find themselves sixth in the Premier League table with 48 points from 27 matches, just two points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.

Past stats do not really mean much, but Rodgers’s truly incredible record of losing just four league games since January 1 in a season demonstrates just how good he is at getting the best out of his players in the second half of the season.

Liverpool have been superb in 2015 and are unbeaten in 11 Premier League games, while also having won their last seven.

The Reds have a great momentum at the moment, and they certainly look on course for a top-four finish for the second season in a row.
