A testing game for Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers

LFC manager Brendan Rodgers says that 'it's a big ask' for Liverpool to get back in the top four in the near future.  It's a long haul and he hopes to see Liverpool get nearer each season.

"I am very hopeful we can meet the challenge going forward and we can try to be a consistent team to get into those top four places, but it is a big ask and you only have to look at Chelsea themselves."

"They finished sixth in the league last season and they had a net spend of over £71m in the summer in order to try to get back into that top four.

"When you look at the other teams around that (the top four) it is a big ask for us.

"It is an ongoing process. I've signed here for three years and I would hope from the first day I came in until the final day I leave we will be in a better position.

"But I don't think you can put a timeline on it. Without that lightning bolt of investment you have to build and coach your way towards it and mould the team.

"Unfortunately that doesn't happen overnight but I'm not crying for time, it is just the reality of the club. I would hope during my time here we can go very close to it if not arrive in there."
