Liverpool have nothing to lose in title race, says Van Dijk
LONDON, OCT 18: Liverpool have nothing to lose in the Premier League title race despite amassing an eight-point lead after just eight games, according to defender Virgil van Dijk.
The European champions are in pole position to end a 30-year wait to win a league title, but Van Dijk believes the pressure is still on Manchester City to win the league for a third straight year.
"I don't think we have anything to lose," Van Dijk told Sky Sports ahead of Sunday's trip to Manchester United.
"Man City are the champions, they're defending their title and we want to get it. In my point of view, we just have to go for it.
"We definitely need to enjoy it and be full of confidence, especially with the way we've got these points, having not had the best games but still getting the wins." -AFP
