Yesterday night Liverpool beat 2-0 Wolverhampton and made the unbeaten run longer. Currently the Reds have earned 48 points after 18 games and are leading the league, while second placed Manchester City has earned 44 points after 17 games.

“For the moment it is really nice and now we have to make sure we get fresh legs as quickly as possible. Other teams such as Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal are all winning as well.
