Liverpool defender Virgil van Dirk has opened up on the chance of Chelsea winning the Premier League after their 3-1 win against Manchester City on Sunday.
The European Champions has established an eight-point lead on the top of the Premier League table after the 3-1 victory against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.
Manchester City is no longer Liverpool closest rival to the title after the defeat, with Chelsea and Leicester City both above Pep Guardiola’s men.
Van Dijk was asked about the chance of Chelsea posing a threat to their title race, the Dutch defender was coy with his response.

"Can Leicester and Chelsea challenge? I don’t know, that is something for you guys to put out in the media," Van Dijk said.
"They have been doing very well and even if you look at Sheffield United, they are a very difficult team to beat so I know, everyone here as well knows as well how difficult this year will be so we shouldn’t look too much at others teams.
"We should look at the teams we face, it was the champions and we did the job. Hopefully, we can keep that focus on the next games.
Chelsea has performed above expectations so far this season, but they are in excellent form at the moment.
