We seem to have been thrust into an existence where England are the bookie favourites for Euro 2020 having been given a hilariously easy draw, Liverpool are 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League, West Ham are winning matches at Chelsea and Miguel Almiron has an assist to his name.
As I said, something isn’t right.
Up at Anfield, Liverpool answered the question around whether they’d continue their unbeaten run now Fabinho is out until 2020 (which sounds a hell of a lot longer than it actually is).
However, they did it in a way that maintains the classic cliche around title-winning teams know how to win matches playing badly – Liverpool are certainly maxing out on that at the moment.
Virgil van Dijk probably didn’t realise the votes for the Ballon d’Or are all done and dusted, so his headed double is too late to influence that outcome. But, they did help Liverpool break down an impressive Brighton and get a 2-0 lead that was much-needed by the end.
