Klopp is 'smiley' and calm - Liverpool defender Robertson

Premier League table Liverpool and Man Utd wins made big changes

Playing with fellow Dutchman Van Dijk in defence for the Reds would see the duo partner each other at both club and global level, where they've helped the Netherlands reach the UEFA Nations League Finals.

"We wanted a clean sheet and we wanted to get some goals and it could have been a lot more than 3-0". It was good that we could bring him on and could see immediately what a fantastic player he is", and added "Today was a day where the boys could really show that we can play a little bit of football.

"But I don't think it was because of the Champions League".

"I think that really they deserved the win, they actually battered Chelsea".

BACK TO WINNING WAYS: Liverpool's Mohamed Salah (c) turns to celebrate after scoring their third goal against Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday.

"The manager called me and said 'do you think you can play?'".

"Chelsea didn't really have an answer to the playing style of Manchester City". If they can win the league, it will be one of the buys of the century, but he has been the most consistent. "Whether we draw, win or lose it doesn't change".

"It could be better but we must appreciate where we stand".

"If you see when they don't have the ball, the pressure that they make is impressive". It is hard [competing with City] but we already knew from the beginning that it would be hard.

"But that result for City [against Chelsea] has confirmed after their hiccup, they're saying: "We're banged at it, this is how we're going to finish the season".

Wijnaldum is optimistic they can realistically fight on two fronts.

He can afford to do that as Liverpool are not involved in next weekend's FA Cup, meaning they return to action in the Champions League at home to Bayern Munich on February 19.

"We have to see how it is going to work".

"Well, in Liverpool they have two Dutch players of course, so for me Liverpool can win the title", he said on Sky Sports. In that time Neville has won eight Premier League titles for Manchester United and knows what it takes to come out on top in a tense title race.

The games themselves are quite a contrast in the top two tiers as, typically, when a team near the bottom of the Premier League visits a side near the top, they go there looking for a point with their main goal being to frustrate their opponents by parking the bus.
