Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed his side have overachieved in relation to the target he set them over the last five league games.

The Reds played Hull City (won 2-0), Stoke City (won 5-3), Aston Villa (drew 2-2), Everton (won 4-0) and West Brom (drew 1-1) in a five-game block identified by Rodgers ahead of time and a group of games he had earmarked ten points from.

And so, despite Liverpool only being able to draw 1-1 against West Brom at the weekend, Rodgers has revealed the team did better than the target he had set for them.

"We're still in a good position", he told his club's site.


"We've been looking to average two points per game this season.

"This was the fifth game in a block of five and we've gone over our target, by taking 11 points from a possible 15."

Liverpool are next in action this coming Saturday when they welcome Premier League leaders Arsenal to Anfield.

The Gunners won the earlier fixture between the two at the Emirates Stadium, triumphing 2-0.
