Swansea City skipper Garry Monk says they're not safe yet despite Sunday's win against Manchester City.
The win to knock Mancini's side off the top of the Premier League table was a massive confidence boost for the Swans, and it takes them up to 11th.
Despite being in mid-table, Garry Monk says they're still not mathematically safe and they have to keep going. Rodgers and his players will want to do far more than just avoid relegation, as top 10 is a realistic target now.
'We're not safe mathematically so we've got to keep going,'
'Even if we were on 40 points now, we wouldn't settle for just being safe — that's not how we work.
'If we don't stay up now I think we all deserve shooting in the head.
'But until it's official we'll keep fighting and fighting because we just want to finish the season as strongly as possible.
'That was the key to our performance on Sunday and it will be the key to the performances ahead.'
Monk also talked about Sunday's win against Manchester City:
'We had a great opportunity against the richest side in the world and we took it. We weren't just equal to them, we were better,'
'In the first half we totally outplayed them in every department. In the second half they came at us a bit and were a bit stronger, but that was more down to the fact we put so much energy into the first hour of the game that we were starting to get a little bit tired.
'They had a bit of pressure, but they weren't creating chances and having shots on goal.
'We limited them to near enough nothing and we just had to hold on for the last five minutes.
'We thoroughly deserved the win.'
