Liver­pool boss Rodgers wants to break 100-goals mark

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Liver­pool boss Brendan Rodgers wants to break the 100 goals bar­rier this sea­son.

The Reds are now cham­pi­ons-elect af­ter vic­tory over Nor­wich City.

Rodgers said: “It was an in­cred­i­ble vic­tory and big con­grat­u­la­tions to the play­ers. That means we can’t fin­ish lower than third, which guar­an­tees Cham­pi­ons League foot­ball. I don’t think any­body would have ex­pected that and it shows the ef­fort we’ve put in and the qual­ity we’ve shown. We still have other goals. We’ve scored 96 now. When I came in 20 months ago we’d scored 47.

“It shows the at­tack­ing set-up and men­tal­ity and how much we’ve im­proved. We want to be one of the few teams to score 100 Pre­mier League goals. We’re look­ing for­ward to next week. There should be a great at­mos­phere in­side An­field.”

The ta­ble top­pers are up against Chelsea at An­field in a match that will de­cide where the English Pre­mier League tro­phy goes in May.
