Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk says the players should not focus on their eight-point lead over Manchester City in the Premier League

Virgil van Dijk says Liverpool are focused solely on their own performances and are not paying any attention to their eight-point lead over champions Manchester City.

A late James Milner penalty gave Liverpool a 2-1 win against Leicester, and with City suffering a shock 2-0 defeat at home to Wolves, the Reds are now eight points clear of Pep Guardiola`s side.

Liverpool can equal City`s Premier League record of 18 consecutive wins if they beat Manchester United in their first match after the international break, which is live and exclusive on Sky Sports.
