Fan’s View: the Championship is more exciting than the Premier League

Liverpool news Paul Ince criticises Jurgen Klopp because of this

The Netherlands worldwide said the Bournemouth victory was the flawless response to dropping points against West Ham and Leicester, and re-set the benchmark for the performance level required to win the Premier League.

"To actually be up there with City, a team who had 100 points last season and who will be close to that again this term, is remarkable".

What Liverpool had to, for themselves and for the title race, was come out with an emphatic win and silence any critics who in recent weeks have seen them as "bottlers", or falling short, and that is exactly what happened.

Another ex-Liverpool star, Jamie Carragher, concedes that Klopp's men need to offer a response to the gauntlet thrown down by City - with the Reds approaching some tricky fixtures of their own.

I don't mean unstoppable in the fact that they cant lose or draw the odd game but the tenacity in which they attack every single game will see them victorious on more occasions than anyone else during the run-in, regardless of who they play.

"The win against Bournemouth just puts that negativity and the talk of nerves and all that to bed".

"There's still time to go". It could have been worse, we could have lost both games (against Leicester and West Ham).

"People say it's disappointing the draws we have had - yes, it is, we would like to win - but all in all, hopefully at the end of the season we can look back and say they are good draws with the circumstances".

The Reds saw off Bournemouth on Saturday thanks thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah.

His overall performance was more in tune with what fans were expecting after seeing his displays in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig.

'I don't think it's a message to any other team or anything, ' said Robertson.

We now take a look at the pivotal matches of the recently concluded round of matches in the most exciting league in the planet.

It's only good for Liverpool's title bid if Keita can play at that level for the rest of the season.

For the first time since around Christmas, following that mauling of Chelsea, I'm finally, cautiously confident Pep Guardiola's men will clinch the Premier League title.

Liverpool fly to Marbella on Monday for warm-weather training with their season firmly back on track.

'We fought for everything and got the result that we needed'.

The 21-year-old had an operation last week on the fracture after suffering a setback in his recovery from an injury which occurred on December 5 and it was decided he was best served staying at home.
