Georginio Wijnaldum reveals extent of his illness before Liverpool victory

Georginio Wijnaldum reveals extent of his illness before Liverpool victory

Pep Guardiola's side are only leading on goal difference and have played a game more than the chasing pack, but they have been in stunning form of late - with Chelsea crushed 6-0 in their most recent outing. But at this moment, Liverpool are the only team in the country that can say "If we win every game, we win the league".

The 28-year-old Dutch worldwide, who scored a superb goal in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Bournemouth despite suffering from a stomach upset, admitted two successive draws had been a setback as the club chases a first league title since 1990.

The way I see it, the more goals, the more exciting the game and as of February 10, the Premier League has seen 736 goals with Liverpool's Mohammed Salah and Man City's Sergio Aguero scoring the most with 17 each.

"So we talk about the attacking players City have at the other end, Liverpool can nearly match them I would say, but in terms of Van Dijk, Liverpool have the best defender".

"On Thursday night I had a tablet from the doctor for my knee", said the 28-year-old, who missed the draw at West Ham with an ongoing knee problem. "It was a tablet that could induce stomach pains", said Wijnaldum, was named man of the match. If City are going to win back-to-back titles I think they can look towards the last month and think about his influence, he has been outstanding. And I certainly don't see many defences keeping them quiet at the other end. In the morning I was still weak and had diarrhoea I must say the tablets helped a lot.

Liverpool convinced in the win at the weekend but lads, it was Bournemouth (who have picked up 9 points away from home in 13 matches). "I ran inside and I managed to control it!" Former Liverpool and Scotland star Graeme Souness revealed what his former employers need to do if they are to win the league this season.

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

It's plain to see in the current rankings, with the biggest gap between positions anywhere in the top flight being the 12 points that separate Chelsea, in sixth, and Wolves, directly below them. "We just have to keep it going".

Meanwhile, Southampton would want things to get better for them after two consecutive draws with Crystal Palace and Burnley put them closer to the bottom.

"There's still time to go". 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. I said I was as positive as I can be.

Last season the Champions League went well and we dropped a lot of points in the league.
