Liverpool boss Klopp confirms Wijnaldum, Milner & Fabinho training absence

  • Premier League table Liverpool and Man Utd wins made big changes

Liverpool may be level pegging on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, but Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has admitted it will be a "real struggle" for them to lift the title in May.

'We wanted to have a clean sheet and we wanted to get some goals back in and it could have been a lot more (than 3-0)'. Fabinho felt [something] a little bit; it will not be a problem, but there was no reason for him to be out today.

"The manager called me and said 'Do you think you can play?' I said I was as positive as I can". I think that's how it will have to be for Liverpool.

"Chelsea didn't really have an answer to the playing style of Manchester City".

"I think that City dominated the game", Kluivert continued.

Ruthlessness distinguishes the Big Three from their nearest challengers, which is what made Liverpool's dropped points in consecutive games with Leicester and West Ham so notable. The Netherlands global said the Bournemouth victory was the flawless response to dropping points against West Ham and Leicester, and re-set the benchmark for the performance level required to win the Premier League.


"But if we had been told that at the beginning [of the season] you will have this kind of points [65] everyone would have taken it". You could see at the beginning of the season we have improved.

"But that result for City [against Chelsea] has confirmed after their hiccup, they're saying: "We're banged at it, this is how we're going to finish the season".

Wijnaldum, who cost Liverpool a reported £22 million ($28 million) when he signed from Newcastle in 2016, is optimistic they can cope with competing on two fronts.

If they are going to win the league they need to maintain that standard every week because they can't afford to make mistakes. We have to give everything in every game and in the end see where we are.

"What Man City do - blowing teams away, scoring so early, the football that they play - you could argue that is the best football to watch", Carragher said. Even last Friday night, Villa looked down and out against Sheffield United when 3-0 down with eight minutes of regular time to go.

He can afford to do that as Liverpool are not involved in next weekend's FA Cup, meaning they return to action in the Champions League at home to Bayern Munich on February 19.
