Liverpool established an eight point lead at the top of the Premier League table, after they beat Manchester City on Sunday.

Chelsea are third on the table, same points as second placed Leicester City and are eight points behind Liverpool.

Quizzed about Chelsea’s chances of challenging Liverpool for the title, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk said: “Can Leicester and Chelsea challenge? I don’t know, that is something for you guys to put out in the media.

“They have been doing very well and even if you look at Sheffield United, they are a very difficult team to beat so I know, everyone here as well knows as well how difficult this year will be so we shouldn’t look too much at other teams.

“We should look at the teams we face, it was the champions and we did the job.

“Hopefully we can keep that focus for the next games.”
