The spotlight is on Liverpool ahead of the Premier League matchday 3 fixture on Monday 22 August. The only thing they need to do is to get three points from tomorrow, which would be the only way out for the team to get closer in the title race against Manchester City.

Liverpool are currently 15th in the Premiership with two draws (two points), seven behind first-placed Arsenal, who are in perfect form this season with three wins in a row. Meanwhile, a great opportunity opens up after Chelsea's defeat and Manchester City's draw, which put them on four and seven points respectively.
