Alonso sends out warning

Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso has publicly reminded critics of the club that the team are still capable of beating the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea, and therefore still in the Premier League title race.

The Spanish international says despite recent bad form, the Reds are still capable of beating anyone, starting with tomorrow’s clash against Chelsea at Anfield.

Ahead of tomorrow’s game, he said, “We’ve had some good results against the top teams this season, people should not forget how we won at Chelsea.

“Hopefully now in the second part of the campaign we can do it again and record more good results against our main rivals.”

“If we can beat the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United again, that should give us a good chance of staying near the top and challenging for the title.

“These are important games. By beating our main rivals we can bring ourselves closer to the title than we have been for many seasons.

“Winning these games tells us that we can come face to face with anyone and win.”

Liverpool vs Chelsea kicks off at 4pm on Sunday, 1st February and is live on Sky Sports.
