Rodgers taking it one step at a time.

Brendan Rodgers has insisted that Liverpool’s next opponents will not be underestimated in the club’s next match. Lying 17th in the league, and having just recently sacked the manager Chris Hughton, most observers are expecting nothing but an easy Liverpool victory when the 2 sides meet this weekend at Carrow Road.

However, as Manchester City just found out against Sunderland, games against the bottom teams this late in the season are rarely, if ever easy, as the teams are fighting tooth and nail to stay in the league. During his pre-match press conference, Rodgers explained that his side will be wary of any complacency.

He said, “It’s been difficult for them this season, but we don’t underestimate them,” Rodgers said, talking to LiverpoolFC.com. “We’ll respect them and know that they are a threat.”

“They know they need to win their game. They’re just above the relegation [zone] and they’ll see their home games as being vital for them. They’ll want to show they can win in front of their supporters.”

“We never look too far ahead, — that’s key in order to manage that expectancy,”

Rodgers said. “It doesn’t matter about Chelsea, Crystal Palace or Newcastle – we have to do the job against Norwich. “We focus on our performance level, and that takes our mind off a lot of the other external factors and background noise that may come across your way.

“As the manager, it’s the job. You’ve got to manage expectations, it’s part of the leadership role. We’ve never got too carried away. Around the training ground, we’re very much focused on what we’re doing.
