Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain warns that his side still have work to do to protect the Premier League title when play resumes, regardless of leading by 25 points.
Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has actually cautioned that the Premier League title race is “not finished yet” regardless of his side boasting a record lead at the top of the table.
Jurgen Klopp‘s men are 25 points clear of closest oppositions Manchester City and need just 2 more wins from their final 9 games to formally protect their first top-flight crown in 30 years.
The coronavirus pandemic has actually brought that title charge to a stop, however, and Oxlade-Chamberlain worried that there is still work to do when football resumes.
“First of all it was sort of another heightened respect for Man City as a team, to go 100 points and then 98 back to back, that takes a lot of doing,” he informed Premier League Productions.
” Psychologically, as a group of players, I think that’s perhaps where we believed, ‘Alright, 97 points unsatisfactory’ and I keep in mind the manager stating we have actually got to domore Easy as that. He was determined that’s insufficient, you have actually got to do more, and I think it’s a credit to us in what we have actually done so far this season.
” Clearly this is an odd time due to the fact that you talk about momentum and that’s the exact same for every team at the minute, however it’s not finished. I’m truly happy of us as a group of lads that we have actually attained that and the manager as well, the whole club, the backroom personnel, they are the exact same. I have actually seen everybody pressing even harder this year, which’s what the manager’s developed.
“There’s not one ego in that team. Our superstars are the hardest working, the most humble and the most relatable guys in the team. Along with industry and the relationship that everyone has, I think that makes it easier for us all to pull in the right direction. At the minute we’ve been doing that but whenever we’re able to kick off again we’ve got a job to finish so we can’t get carried away yet.”
Liverpool have actually dropped simply 5 points all season and are on course to break Man City’s record points tally.
