Liverpool's Fabinho enjoying learning Jurgen Klopp's style of play

Milner was forced off 29 minutes into Liverpool's goalless draw with Manchester City on Sunday, clutching his hamstring as he limped off at Anfield.

"We had a chance at 0-0 for Danny Ings, if that goes in we get a different frame of mind", he said. Can Hazard win Chelsea the Premier League 2018/19?

"We have to start thinking about the players".

"I knew it before", said Klopp when quizzed if Liverpool have to beat more than City to land a first title in 29 years.

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson reckons it would be foolish to dismiss both Chelsea and Arsenal from this seasons Premier League title race.

"If we look at the rest, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Fabinho and even Gini Wijnaldum to some extent, while they're very good midfielders, they've not got an abundance of goals in them".

Liverpool are nine points better off than at the same stage last season, and Van Dijk remains satisfied, if not complacent.

"In that situation, we help strikers when that happens". In the league, City has clicked into gear and are already top of the Premier League table only dropping points away to Wolves at the end of August. Liverpool could have lost the one point they gained if Mahrez didn't miss the penalty.

"On Monday, when he arrived in our training camp in Zeist, he could see from the look on my face that I was thinking about the foul he made when Liverpool played Man City on Sunday".

Those worries are surely premature, with the intense nature of that run of games being sure to take a toll in the legs of a hard-running outfit at some point, and that aforementioned trip to Yorkshire starts off a more favourable run of fixtures the far side of the upcoming worldwide break.

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both scored twice, with Aaron Ramsey grabbing the other.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp backs Arsenal to challenge for the title.

In that season the Reds went on to concede one goal in a 4-1 victory over Norwich City in their ninth game.

"I think to keep a clean sheet after a penalty in the last five minutes makes me a very happy man".
