Virgil van Dijk: Liverpool deserve to win trophies

"Obviously we are in a great shape right now after coming back from a big points disadvantage against Liverpool". It affected him. With the line-up we had and system-wise, it wasn't hard but we have to change a little bit if Shaq is playing.

But it is not all doom and gloom for the Clarets.

Having picked up 18 points from ten matches since Boxing Day, Sean Dyche's side had recovered from their early season woes to give themselves a fighting chance of staying in the Premier League.

The stats are a bit gloomy for the Reds as well.

Much criticism has been aimed at Liverpool in recent weeks, after they drew four of their last six league matches, handing over the advantage to Pep Guardiola's side in their quest for a first title in almost 29 years.

During his four games in February, the Argentina worldwide scored seven goals - with his two trebles coming against Arsenal and Chelsea. The Brazilian forward has scored 9 and assisted 4 in 28 appearances over 2,108 minutes.

"I think you'd have to say that Aguero has made much more of an impact against the top-six teams, but there's no doubt Salah is one of the best players in the Premier League". "Just enjoy it. Believe in yourselves", added Gerrard.

- Sadio Mane has become the fifth Liverpool player to score in six consecutive home appearances in the Premier League, after Michael Owen, Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez and Mohamed Salah.

For the away side, keep an eye out on Chris Wood who might have the support of Ashley Barnes up top.

City is in a strong position in its last-16 tie with Schalke, leading 3-2 thanks to late strikes from Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling in the first leg.

This season the improvement has continued, also in part because of the addition of Alisson, and Klopp's side have only conceded 15 goals in the Premier League, the least in the league. Roberto Firmino should come back in place of Divock Origi.

Burnley are expected to be without Aaron Lennon (knee injury), Jonathan Walters and Steven Defour (calf strain) for Sunday's trip to Anfield.

He said on LFC TV after the match: "We know they can win games, they are very, very capable of going on a run and winning the last eight games". The Liverpool manager said: "We scored five goals two weeks ago [against Watford] and then we didn't score v Everton and everyone asks me about more offensive line-ups!"

"We always have this question about when we have a 12 noon kickoff".
