Liverpool are trying to rope in Manchester City at the top of the tree with them currently nine points off of top spot with a game in hand.
A trip to the Etihad is still to come before the end of the season, meanwhile, and so there's still plenty to unfurl in the coming months.
Indeed, VVD says it's far from over:
Virgil van Dijk:
“If anyone wouldn't believe [Liverpool can catch Manchester City] then they better stay home, in my opinion. There's so many points still to collect, there's so many games to play, there's so many cups that we're involved in. Anything can happen.” #awlive [lfc] pic.twitter.com/fENnSnhjLw
Anfield Watch Verdict
This is the sort of thought process Liverpool need to have.
Injuries or poor form can still strike and the Reds need to be as prepared as possible to try and close the gap when the chance comes.
It will be tough, of course, but there is no point just giving up because of that.
