"I believe you can’t affect refereeing decisions. There will be little bits of luck that go for and against you, but I like to think, as a sporting team and a team that’s trying to work well, we’ve got our rewards this year."
Rodgers admits his side’s recent Premier League encounter at West Ham, where the hosts were awarded a controversial equaliser at the end of his first half, was a test of their concentration.
Andy Carroll appeared to foul Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet before Guy Demel bundled the ball home, but referee Anthony Taylor allowed the goal to stand.
"At West Ham, I had a quiet word with the referee on the way out," added Rodgers. "Calm, get his reasons behind it, and then move on.
"The bottom line is I went into the dressing room at Upton Park, it was 1-1. I said to the players, ‘Listen, you can have an excuse. I can tell you your excuse after the game – the referee gave a poor goal. But it won’t change anything.’
"All we can do is focus again and get our flow and rhythm again. We try to have a no excuses environment here."
