Liverpool and Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker claims that the Reds deserve to win the Premier League title, as they now sit eight points clear atop the table.
We’re yet to lose a game so far this season, and we’ve only faltered by drawing away at Old Trafford against a stubborn Manchester United.
Most seasons from the past, that would be an unbelievable start to the season, but Manchester City have raised the bar so much that we can’t get too excited just yet.
The Reds missed out on last season’s domestic title by a very close margin, but Alisson believes that this season will be different.
“My aims are to win everything we play for. Every time we go on the pitch to play a cup game, a league game or a Champions League games, we will give everything to win,” the Brazil star told Sky Sports.
“The desire of the people is important for us and we have the same desire to win the Premier League this season. It’s something we try with our full heart to win because the people deserve it, the club deserve it and we deserve it also because of what we did last season and what we have done this season so far.
“But we need to keep going, keep playing to win every game and keep improving, that’s an important thing, but we will try to win all the tournaments we play.”
Alisson has hit the nail on the head – I mean, literally, if we look at the last 38 games then we win the title, but it doesn’t work that way.
It’s a long way to go for the Reds, but if we keep up our current form then we can hopefully start thinking about fighting for the title in a realistic way.
It’s too soon to start dreaming, but if we keep our heads down and keep totting up the points then it won’t be long until we’re in a place where we can legitimately start talking about the race.
