The title race is not for the faint at heart of in any ordinary season, and it is especially not this extraordinary season. At one point, Manchester City had a massive lead over Liverpool. Also, I’m constantly reminded that Liverpool had a seven point lead when I started being in a good mood. Now they don’t.
Right then. Nine matches to go. One point off the lead. Two teams look like they’re going to finish with around 95 points. The world’s most expensive centerback, Virgil van Dijk, had some thoughts about what’s needed during time’s like these.
“You just need to stay calm. There are nine games left and anything is possible. I think a lot of people forget [there’s a quarter of the season to go]. One point is not a lot, but it is something because it’s Man City. We’ll see.
“The next challenge for us is Burnley and it’s going to be a tough one, so we’ll see after that how it is going to be. We have Champions League coming up, we have the international break coming up, so there are so many things that can change over the time. We’ll see what it brings us.
“It’s very important [to get a win against Burnley]. At this stage, it’s the most important thing – to get the three points. It doesn’t really matter how, but we want to show good football as well.”
Burnley then. See you tomorrow, Reds.
