Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

MANCH­ESTER:

Liver­pool mid­fielder Jor­dan Hen­der­son says it is too soon to talk about win­ning the ti­tle and the side must keep their feet on the ground af­ter Satur­day’s 4-2 win over Crys­tal Palace kept them hot on the heels of Premier League lead­ers Manch­ester City. Liver­pool, who won the last of their 18 English league ti­tles in 1990, are un­beaten in eight league games and trail City and sec­ond-placed Ar­se­nal only on goal dif­fer­ence af­ter 10 games. While their im­pres­sive start has raised op­ti­misim among their fans, Hen­der­son played down the ti­tle talk. “We’ve just got to con­cen­trate on our games,” the Eng­land in­ter­na­tional told BT Sport. “We’re not get­ting ahead of our­selves. We’re fo­cus­ing on the game ahead and want to keep it game to game.” Goals from Emre Can, De­jan Lovren, Joel Matip and Roberto Firmino se­cured vic­tory for Liver­pool at Sel­hurst Park in a vi­brant at­tack­ing dis­play. How­ever, con­cerns re­main over their de­fence af­ter James McArthur headed home twice to keep Palace in the game. “It’s a dif­fi­cult place to come,” said the Liver­pool skip­per.—Reuters
