Winning 8 Points from Man City, Wijnaldum: Liverpool is Still Far Away to become the Premier League Champion

Liverpool last season wasted a ten-point advantage over City, then slipped and again failed to end the season as the domestic league champion.

With Liverpool, Wijnaldum has always been played as a key player this season. He even scored a mere goal when the Merseyside club stole a 1-0 win at Sheffield United’s headquarters two weeks ago.
Wijnaldum reminded his colleagues not to fall asleep with Liverpool’s position in the standings, and to undergo one match after match in all competitions.
“We must convince ourselves that we are ready for the matches to come, and to try to achieve good results because we know that can change quickly,” said the bloody Surinamese player.
Wijnaldum is currently joining the Dutch national team for the match against Northern Ireland in Rotterdam on Friday (11/10) early morning Western Indonesian Time. After the match in Rotterdam, the Netherlands will be hosted by a caretaker team in Group C, Estonia, three days later.
