Big Six? It's all about the Premier League's Big Three

Big Six? It's all about the Premier League's Big Three

The midfielder capped a man-of-the-match display with a delightful goal, his first at Anfield since October 2017, as Jürgen Klopp's side reacted impressively to Manchester City overtaking them in the title race.

Keita had a hand in all three Liverpool goals, providing the pass to team mate James Milner, whose cross to Liverpool's Senegalese winger Sadio Mane was headed in for Liverpool's first goal.

"People say it's disappointing the draws we have had - yes, it is, we would like to win - but all in all, hopefully at the end of the season we can look back and say they are good draws with the circumstances. It was a tablet that could induce stomach pains", said the 28-year-old. Yeah, I think they were in the areas that mattered.

"I remember when Blackburn got over the line in 1994/95, they had a bit of a lead and they just got over the line in the end".

I don't mean unstoppable in the fact that they cant lose or draw the odd game but the tenacity in which they attack every single game will see them victorious on more occasions than anyone else during the run-in, regardless of who they play. In the morning I was still weak and had diarrhoea I must say the tablets helped a lot.

"But winning the Premier League is about who gets the most points and there's different ways of getting points".

"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". At half-time I thought: "Oh no" but I ran inside and managed to control it!"

It's plain to see in the current rankings, with the biggest gap between positions anywhere in the top flight being the 12 points that separate Chelsea, in sixth, and Wolves, directly below them.

"Fans have a lot of emotion, but we can't just go on emotion", Alisson told ESPN Brasil.

"We are having one of those runs in the season where we have got little niggles, little injuries, illnesses and disruption to the team a couple of days before, it has been the last few games really", he said.

Liverpool signed Keita from RB Leipzig for £52.75m but he has not yet caught up to the pace of the English game, despite showing promise in his early Premier League outings.

Wijnaldum is optimistic they can realistically fight on two fronts.

"There's still time to go".

He will be needed in the remainder of the season as Liverpool attempt to balance a title challenge with a Champions League campaign, which resumes against Bayern Munich next week.

The unpredictability of the Championship has shown how good this league has been so far.
