Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has admitted that Reds manager Jurgen Klopp demands a lot from his players, not just during matches, but also in training on a daily basis.

Liverpool remain level on points with Chelsea and City at the top of the Premier League table ahead of the global break, after a gruelling run of matches.

"For both teams it was really intense, and both showed respect for the other team".

"It means you play for something if you play a lot of games: Champions League, the cups and the Premier League".

"We were trying to prepare as well as possible for this period because you have to be fresh, full of confidence and stay positive".

Essien, who spent nearly a decade at Stamford Bridge and won two Premier League titles with Chelsea, also reacted to speculation linking Eden Hazard with a move.

A powerful passport is measured by how many countries citizens can visit without a visa, says new research. Ranking in fourth place, with a score of 137, were jointly Denmark, Finland, Italy, Spain and Sweden.

'The Premier League is there to be won so fingers crossed'.

"Eighty-five minutes, you obviously get a bit tired, and that moment goes by in a split second and I chose to dive in, which is not what I would normally do".

"We played Chelsea last week, who were excellent".

"We made it hard for them and they made it hard for us at times but that's how it is". Despite having made just one start in a red shirt this season, the 24-year-old is trusting the process. At the end of the season, you can make sure you can win something, not at the beginning of the season. You can get three points or one point or no points.

Arsenal, though, are two points behind the leading pack after Unai Emery's side eased to a resounding 5-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage in Sunday's early kick-off.

Fabinho has been an unused substitute in the last four Premier League games, with Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and James Milner sharing the three midfield spots between them.
