Georginio Wijnaldum calm despite Liverpool's eight-point lead over Manchester City

Georginio Wijnaldum calm despite Liverpool's eight-point lead over Manchester City”

Georginio Wijnaldum says Liverpool are ignoring all the talk that this could finally be the season where the Premier League title comes to Anfield.

If the Reds can still be eight points clear after they host City on November 10th, they will be a great position.

Liverpool surrendered a seven-point lead at the top past year, but pundit Shearer feels the momentum is different this time around and they are in a much stronger position.

The Reds finished in second place in the Premier League table last season. But the real difference now is that, for the first time, they have a proper cushion at the top.

Liverpool can not afford to think the Premier League is Anfield-bound after Manchester City came form behind to pip the Reds to the title last season, says Georginio Wijnaldum.

Liverpool now sit top of the league heading into the global break, having won all eight games so far this season as part of a 17 game winning run in the league.

Despite spending most of his career playing for two of the Reds' bitter rivals - Everton and Manchester United - Rooney has admitted Liverpool look even better than last season. City are a fantastic team.

"From then on, they were under nearly constant pressure in one of the tightest title races I can remember - but with the way the table looks now, the Liverpool players won't be feeling the same way".

Meanwhile, Manchester City were beaten at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers and there poor defence is costing them.

Salah will be monitored during the worldwide break and it remains to be seen whether he will play during Liverpool's clash against Manchester United after the global break.
