Liverpool’s internationals have been travelling around the world, but there has still been news coming out of Merseyside.
3 things for a title race
With Liverpool just one point off the top of the Premier League, hopes are beginning to swell and some are even starting to expect a title challenge.
Nearly a third of the way through the season, Vigil van Dijk has been performing brilliantly but believes Liverpool need more than just quality to win the league.
The Dutchman said: “We need to see; we need a bit of luck, we need no injuries and need consistency.”
He did add, though, that the Reds will soon know where the rest of the season will likely go.
“When we come back, there is a very big one away and we will see if we are ready for that test,” said Liverpool’s No. 4.
That fixture is, of course, Man City away on November 25 – a win would take Liverpool top but the Reds haven’t won at the Etihad since 2018.
