Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League, as the Jürgen Klopp-led side have proven to be the best team in the English league. After twenty games so far this season, the Reds have 13 wins, six draws and just one defeat. In that sense, the Anfield side have lived up to their history and what fans expected for this campaign, especially after failing to even qualify for the Champions League last season.

However, although Klopp has managed to get our Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League, it is not yet time to celebrate anything at all as there are still many games to be played and it is important that the players stay focused on the main objective which is none other than the title. In that sense, the title race is expected to be quite close, as the Reds will have to overcome the other teams that are also at the top of the table.

Of course, as expected, Manchester City will perhaps be Liverpool's biggest rivals for the Premier League trophy at the end of the season. Currently, Jürgen Klopp's side have managed to get their hands on the title, as even if the Citizens beat Newcastle United this weekend, they would still have a three-point lead over them.

On that note, Liverpool have received some big news as it has been confirmed that Erling Haaland will miss the remainder of January due to a foot injury. We all know how important the Norwegian is to Pep Guardiola's system at Manchester City, so his absence could mean good news for Liverpool, who will be hoping that the striker's absence will translate into a loss of points for our rivals.

Guardiola gives details of Haaland's injury

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola gave details of the Norwegian striker's injury. “Hopefully at the end of this month he’ll be ready. It was a little bit more than we expected in the beginning. It’s a bone, it needs time. Every injury you can do whatever you want but it’s a question of time”, he said.
