Liverpool may be level pegging on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, but Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has admitted it will be a "real struggle" for them to lift the title in May. "It was a tablet that could induce stomach pains", said Wijnaldum, was named man of the match.

"We lacked that a little bit in the last couple of games". And I certainly don't see many defences keeping them quiet at the other end.

"The manager called me and asked if I could play".

"The tablets helped a lot but even at half-time I had to run off to get to the toilet".

Among those who also travelled to Spain are Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whom Klopp hopes could make a competitive return from a serious knee injury 10 months ago by April, and 18-year-old Rhian Brewster, who has been sidelined with knee and ankle problems since January 2018.

The convincing win will come as welcome relief to Liverpool fans after the Merseysiders had succumbed to successive draws to West Ham and Leicester. The only thing we get annoyed about - not nervous about - is that we want to win every game.

However, this is not the case in the Championship as teams go out looking to win every game and this subsequently leads to some of the games of the season.

Wijnaldum has started 21 of them and scored a delightful chipped goal in the 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Yes, we need to take into consideration the fact that the Premier League has four fewer teams than the Championship, but that's four more teams that can produce shock results and score more goals, and it's eight more games where you can pull your team's shirt out of the wardrobe and wear it with pride as there's nothing like watching your side pull off an upset against a top team in the division.

"But if we had been told that at the beginning (of the season) you will have this kind of points (65) everyone would have taken it". However, the Championship has seen a mammoth 985 goals this so far this season, with Sheffield United's Billy Sharp racking up 22 goals and Norwich's Teemu Pukki scoring 20!.

Liverpool's midfield three of Wijnaldum, Fabinho and Naby Keïta impressed, with the summer signing from RB Leipzig producing one of his strongest games for the club.

"But that result for City [against Chelsea] has confirmed after their hiccup, they're saying: "We're banged at it, this is how we're going to finish the season". Keïta has started the past four matches, his longest sequence, and Klopp admitted a decision was taken to play the Guinea worldwide into form.
