A splendid second-half performance from Liverpool showed that they are too good for Arsenal beating them 2-0 in the recent Premier League clash. The Reds showed great character to make a second-half comeback courtesy of goals from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino.
This win takes Jurgen Klopp’s men very close to the Premier League leaders Manchester City. The Reds are just a point behind the reigning champions, who once had a 12-point lead over them. It has been a show of sheer determination and character that has led them to this path and helped them achieve this feat.
Despite the recent positives, Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara wants the Reds to remain humble as they hunt down the position at the Premier League summit.
It promises to be a very exciting title race as Jurgen Klopp’s men are determined to take the attack to their opposition. It will be a great spectacle for the fans to witness in the coming matchdays. After winning 2-0 against an inform Gunners side, Thiago said that every game is a final for the Reds from here.
“The gap now is one back and every game is a final. There’s no weeks off,” Thiago commentated at the post match interview to SkySports.
The former Bayern Munich midfield maestro feels that their primary focus should be on themselves and continue this hot streak of winning matches. “We focus on ourselves and take it game-by-game. We analyse this game to go through what things we did wrong, what things we did right. That’s the key, stay focused, stay humble,” the Spanish midfielder added.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their nine Premier League clashes and if they continue that streak for another nine matches then they will lift the Premier League trophy leapfrogging Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
The Reds will face Manchester on April 10, the date many football fanatics are eagerly waiting for. That game will decide a lot of things and give an idea of which way the Championship race will sway in the coming matchday.
That match allows Manchester City to fight back against Liverpool who are now looking like the team in the form to win the Premier League. But this match can change that narrative for Manchester City as a win against Liverpool will give it a twist to the title race. For now, the Premier League title race is th most exciting prospect for football fans.
