Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that his side still have a long way to go despite thrashing Arsenal 5-1 at the weekend.

Braces from Martin Skrtel and Raheem Sterling and a goal from Daniel Sturridge at Anfield handed the Gunners their fourth Premier League defeat of the season as the Reds consolidated fourth spot with 50 points from 25 games, six points behind leaders Chelsea.

Despite the big victory against a top-notch side, Rodgers believes that his thin squad are still a work-in-progress.

However, the Northern Irishman admitted that it was pleasing to see his young side dismantle Arsenal on Saturday.


"We've still got a long way to go for me, in terms of where we want to go and where we want to be, but across the board it's very pleasing", Rodgers told his club’s official site.

"We've got so many young players, who are still growing and developing and our squad is small. So I feel that we've still got work to do.”

Rodgers further added that he is not thinking about Liverpool winning the league as his primary objective is to guide his side to a highest possible finish this term.

“When we play like that and perform like that, people are obviously going to ask the question [can we win the league?].

"We're five points behind Arsenal, four behind Manchester City and six behind Chelsea and we still have them to play here at Anfield.

“But the main objective is just to finish as high as we possibly can and let's see where that takes us”, he added.
