Virgil van Dijk on the games which will define Liverpool’s title bid

"It means you play for something if you play a lot of games: Champions League, the cups and the Premier League".

"I think every team that plays Man City will maybe struggle at times to sort of get their foothold in the game and we were no different".

"We've had a great start to the season and we want to keep it going".

And former striker Fowler says that despite putting themselves in contention with their strong start to the season, the Reds players are performing below the expectations of the fans and Klopp.

"It has been nine wins in a row in all competitions, but I'm not sure the opposition in those games has been so good that they can get over-confident about their run and their title chances".

"I had to accept where I was at", he added. Don't write Chelsea out but they need a real "goal-getter".

"Out of the top six from last season, I would say that Chelsea and Liverpool have impressed". I don't think they have been tested that much really, and they lost their two games against Manchester City and Chelsea - although they were unlucky against Chelsea. I don't know. I [asked] him: "'Big one?' and he said: "'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'".

You can see over the past couple of years that England have produced some unbelievable players in the youth system and have won trophies, and I was a part of that with the U17s way back in 2010.

"I feel much more mature now, I feel like I'm ready to show what I'm capable of".

The Chelsea man came through a hard end to his Everton days as well as a serious hamstring injury at the start of his Stamford Bridge career to establish himself in the first-team picture under Maurizio Sarri, and he feels he deserves to be back in the squad after maturing on and off the pitch.

"We made it hard for them and they made it hard for us at times but that's how it is".

"I understand my football better now, more than I ever have understood it before".

"Maybe over the last few years I've been a bit inconsistent but now I'm fully focused on giving consistent performances".
