Liverpool are chasing a place in next season’s Champions League, and on New Year’s weekend were lucky to pick up all three points from the home game against Leicester, while rivals vie for the top four in the form of Newcastle, Manchester City, Tottenham and. Chelsea conceded all the points.
However, the Reds’ game against Leicester was far below par, and it took two goals from Leicester goalkeeper Out Vice to keep the points at Anfield.
– We can make no more excuses. This was only the second match in the Premier League after the World Cup. The Liverpool goalkeeper told LFCTV that players who were on leave during the World Cup used this time to prepare, while those who were at the World Cup could train, rest and prepare for these matches.
– I can talk about myself and the players who participated in the World Cup. We focused there on the World Cup matches, but after we finished the tournament we immediately focused on what awaits us with the club team.
– We are now entering a very important period of the season, and it must have full focus. We must do better than this. Sometimes it’s all about attitude. It’s not easy to change that, but we can manage it.
Eight points up to second place
Liverpool is now eight points behind Manchester City in second place, six points behind Newcastle in third place with a match less, and four points behind Manchester United in fourth place. Even Spurs are in fifth place, two points, but Spurs have one more game to go.
The only thing we can take away from Friday’s game is the win and the effort on the field. There is much room for improvement. When we look at our performance, we realize that we have to perform much better if we are to achieve our goals.
We have high expectations of ourselves and our supporters have high expectations of us. We are a big club. Liverpool is a huge club that will always try to fight for titles and stay on top. We must do better. We know that.
Indeed, tomorrow Liverpool will play their next league match against Brentford in West London. Therefore, the players do not have enough time to focus on the Leicester match. He is now aiming for a fifth successive Premier League win, the first since April last year.
Sometimes it feels good when you win on a bad day. We have to look at the positives as well. We have to focus on the fact that we won and the three points. We don’t have much time to complain about our performance. Alisson concluded: We just have to keep going, prepare better for the next match, and do better.
Brentford – The Liverpool game will take place at the Gtech Community Stadium on Monday 2nd January at 18.30 and will be broadcast live on V sport PL and Viaplay.
