Gini Wijnaldum is part of the best Liverpool side most of us have ever seen.

He also knows that the way the club have got there is by working extremely hard and never resting on their laurels. He knows that the league title isn’t won yet and there are plenty of hard days to come in pursuit of it. He’s not losing his head just yet.

“It is [incredible],” Wijnaldum told the official Liverpool site about the current run.

“But we also work really hard to keep this run going, we have a manager who keeps both our feet on the ground and to work even harder.

“Every day when we are training or playing a game, we try to do it better than we did before. We always strive to do it better.”

Speaking specifically of yesterday’s win over Tottenham, the midfielder added that “[It was] really tough [physically] but also because I think we made it really tough for ourselves in the second half”.

“I think first half we played a good game but we gave sniffs away and gave them a little bit of confidence. Because it was only 1-0, they had the confidence they could equalise and in the second half you know they will come out and try to equalise. That’s what makes it harder – and also because we didn’t do what we did in the first half.

“I think that was the reason why it was really tough. Normally, it’s always tough when you play against Tottenham but I think we made it tougher than what it was.

“It was only 1-0 so they had the confidence to try to score a goal. We had to do better with the situation. At the end we defended well but in a few bits in the game we gave chances away and we were lucky they didn’t score.”

We’ll set up the party while you lot slog it out to get the title sorted.
