Liverpool title win will not erase memories of slip, says Steven Gerrard

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he is "completely fine with chasing" Manchester City after the Reds drew 0-0 at Everton in last weekend's Merseyside derby, missing the chance to return to the top of the Premier League.

As a result, he has delayed Liverpool's journey to Germany. The hosts are also unbeaten in 35 Premier League games here (W25-D10-L0).

Gerrard left Liverpool in 2015 after 17 years at the club.

'I don't think anyone at the Premier League thinks about that.

"They are so consistent in what they are doing", he said.

By 09:00 GMT on Monday, he was at St George's Park in Staffordshire, a drive of 410 miles, to attend the latest session of his Pro-Licence coaching course.

"We were ready for that today and now we have a point more than before - all good". Somebody else who makes decisions. Ask BT (who are showing game live). That would require Burnley to play aggressively on Sunday with an aim to leave Anfield with at least a point or three.

Two years later they were champions again on the final day, with two draws and a defeat coming in their final ten matches. Roberto Firmino hasn't scored in six games, Mo Salah for four.

It is nearly fair to say that Burnley's recent turnaround is down to Ashley Barnes' and Chris Wood's form.

The Burnley boss took exception to criticism from Klopp after the German called out the Clarets' aggressive tackling during the 3-1 win, in which Joe Gomez suffered a leg fracture following a tackle from Ben Mee.

'An English plan, why not?

"As you can imagine, fantastic fella that he is, he's just chatting away as you would about football, but deep down I'm remembering that little tiny ginger kid, thinking "wow, that's King Kenny", and watching him on TV".

"Our people are very important, we spoke a lot about that - we need atmosphere at 12 o'clock", he added. They now have 16 Premier League goals between them and next highest scorer is James Tarkowski with three! Replacing him in the side would be a tricky tale, with Klopp so far showing reluctance to give Naby Keita minutes, while Xherdan Shaqiri has also seemingly fallen out of favour. The Swiss global didn't start a game in February but the manager also has to weigh up Burnley's threat at set pieces.

"We knew how much this fixture means to the fans", said Pickford.

"I am sure they are looking forward to Sunday's game as they feel they have a chance and we have to make sure that does not happen". Van Dijk is one of the key reasons for the team's aforementioned clean sheet record and has more than justified the investment Liverpool made, revolutionising their previously frail defence. These players look like they believe they can be champions - that really shouldn't be underestimated. I have no idea what he said after the game.
