The Anfield outfit have won their last seven games on the bounce, putting them in contention for the title, but their boss has rejected talk from Tim Sherwood they will struggle
Brendan Rodgers has refuted suggestions from Tottenham counterpart Tim Sherwood that Liverpool are feeling the pressure in the title race.
Liverpool head into Sunday's visit of Tottenham following Wednesday's 2-1 success over Sunderland, a result that left Rodgers' side just one point behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.

However, Rodgers has been quick to dismiss Sherwood's comments, insisting that his players are calm ahead of the final run-in.
"We're very relaxed," Rodgers told reporters. "We're focused. There was no expectation on us being where we are, so there's certainly no pressure."
Rodgers also hit back at Sherwood, indicating that Tottenham - who sit seven points adrift of the top four in sixth - have performed below expectations this season.
"I suppose the likes of Tottenham are a team who were maybe looking to be challenging for the league this season. You spend £100m-odd - it's a group that's set up to challenge," he added.
"There's certainly no pressure on ourselves, and I think we've shown that over the course of the season. We're playing with no fear.
"We're very hungry to succeed and that can give you a real advantage. We've proved that already this season. Experience isn't everything.
