Virgil van Dijk: 'Liverpool have nothing to lose in Premier League title race'

Van Dijk: 'Liverpool have nothing to lose'

Defender Virgil van Dijk claims that Liverpool have 'nothing to lose' in the Premier League title race.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has dismissed suggestions that expectations have increased at Anfield.

After winning their opening eight games in the Premier League, Liverpool have opened up an eight-point advantage over defending champions Manchester City.

However, despite the Merseyside giants now being regarded as the favourites for the top-flight crown, Van Dijk has insisted that there is little pressure on the squad.

The Dutchman told Sky Sports News: "I don't think we have anything to lose. 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.

"The pressure gets bigger, but that comes from the media. They love to put more pressure on us and that's something we have to deal with. I don't mind because I'm not thinking about what other people say, I just want to win every game that is ahead of me.

"We definitely need to enjoy it being top of the Premier League 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."

Liverpool will hope to preserve their 100% domestic record when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
