Liverpool: Brendan Rodgers insists there is no pressure on his Liverpool team as they look to continue their push for the Premier League title against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield today.
Liverpool have been dark horses in the title race but have given themselves a real chance of securing their first top-flight championship for 24 years thanks to a run of seven straight league wins.
That has left them in second place, just a point behind leaders Chelsea ahead of Saturday's fixtures, with home games to come against Chelsea and fellow challengers Manchester City before the end of the season.
But Rodgers suggests Tottenham, who are struggling to secure a top-four finish and a Champions League place, are perhaps the ones with more to lose.
"The players are very relaxed and focused," said the Liverpool manager.
"There is no expectation on us being where we are and there is certainly no pressure from ourselves. There's no pressure on us and we have shown over the course of the season that we are playing with no fear."
