Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has warned Liverpool that they cannot afford to celebrate winning the Premier League just yet.
The Reds went eight points clear at the top of the table on Sunday courtesy of a 3-1 win over Manchester City at Anfield.
The victory over the champions was their 11th win in 12 Premier League games this season and, crucially, also put them nine points clear of Pep Guardiola’s side.
That is a gap that some cannot see City, or any other challengers making up, with some pundits believing they are now a shoo-in to win the title.
That idea has caught on among the Liverpool fan base too, with many now hopeful that their long wait for another league title, and first Premier League crown, will come to an end this season.
Sigurdsson is having none of that, and – with his Everton hat firmly on – has warned Liverpool against any premature celebrations.
“No, no, so much can happen over December and January,” the Blues midfielder told Fotbolti.net.
“Didn’t they have a good head start last year? There is a lot of games ahead.
“Liverpool are very strong, and this was hugely compelling against City. It’s still November, so there’s plenty of time left.
“If Liverpool continue to play as they have been, it will be difficult to catch them, but City can completely get on track and win lots of games in a row.”
