Just six points separate the top seven and Rodgers wants to keep a lid on any talk of a title challenge.
He said: ‘I don’t really think about it, it’s something which gets floated about and we have seen it all season.
‘Tottenham a few weeks ago and Chelsea themselves, five or six weeks ago everyone was talking about them.
‘The quality of Manchester City, Liverpool are the champions and Manchester United have been great. For Leicester to be up with the level of teams who are there makes me really happy.

‘It’s going to be a huge challenge to be up there but we are happy to take on that challenge.
‘You have seen the real spirit of the side tonight. We were a real threat going forward.
‘The performance and maturity of the team was pleasing. I knew we were playing against a talented team and we had to be right on our game.’
