Premier League motion returns this weekend and the Reds welcome Watford within the early kick-off on Saturday, earlier than Manchester City face Burnley shortly after. A win towards Roy Hodgson’s facet will take Liverpool above City within the desk, albeit probably simply briefly.
Liverpool sitting prime would definitely put strain on Pep Guardiola’s facet to beat Burnley at Turf Moor, however Thiago says it would not come as a ‘enhance’ for the crew as they will solely depend upon themselves.
“No, I don’t think so,” he advised liverpoolfc.com. “I don’t think to see us on top before City plays would be a boost.
