Jurgen Klopps men have spent the international break sitting top of the table, one point ahead of Chelsea and two ahead of Manchester City and Arsenal.  Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price They rounded off their rise to the summit with a 6-1 thrashing of Watford at the start of the month, with Lucas starting at centre-back in place of the ill Dejan Lovren.  The victory at Anfield saw Liverpool extend their unbeaten run to 12 games, and Lucas believes the Reds can win the Premier League title, but he is not counting on lifting the trophy just yet after previous experiences. Yes I think we can with the title. We have had very good results and playing against some very hard teams and weve showed that if we perform the way we are at this moment, we believe we can win the title, he told Soccer Saturday.  Lucas believes Liverpool can win the Premier League title this season But it is a very early stage. I have been top of the league in other years at this stage around Christmas time and ended up not winning so we have to go game by game and it is a long season.There are times that we will be struggling as every team does and we will have to be able to cope with that, still collect as many points as we can and see where it will take us by May.  Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed Adam Lallana has had a scan on a groin injury and is not sure if he will be fit to play former club Southampton Of course we know where we are at this moment but it is something we dont really talk too much about. It is great to be there but there are still a lot of games to be played and we want to end up there.Watford was a very good result and performance. Ive been involved in other good games that we probably didnt win 6-1 but 2-1 or 3-1. I remember a few games last year as well where we had a very good performance. Watch highlights from Liverpools 6-1 win against Watford The momentum is very good, the performances have been very good so we still have a lot to improve. Thats positive because if we can be top of the league and still have a lot to improve, then thats a good sign of what we are trying to do everyday in training.Lucas is now in his 10th season with Liverpool, having joined the club in July 2007, and thinks the current side is one of the best he has been involved in while he believes his work ethic has kept him at Anfield for so long.  Premier League questions Will the Reds maintain their impressive start on the South Coast? I think it is a very strong squad. It is almost hard to compare because the teams are different, the mangers are different, he added.I can see this team now doesnt rely on only one player. Thats what has been the big factor for me. Having been in and around for many years and watching players, I think this team is becoming a very strong team, it doesnt rely on one or two players. Lucas has played under five managers in his 10 years at Anfield, including current boss Jurgen Klopp We had individual players who are doing very well at this moment but goals are coming from everywhere and results have been good so thats probably the point I would make about this team but it is very hard to say. It is probably one of the best, yes.  Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the club must create an atmosphere in which none of their star players, like Philippe Coutinho, want to leave. I think of all the critics I have, I probably have something good to offer here. Liverpool is a club where I love playing, I enjoy every minute. I know it wont be forever, so I just try to give my best all the time.Thats why Ive probably been here, playing under five mangers and thats how I have been doing over the last 10 years. There have been moments that have been very hard, very down and frustrating but you have to keep working and try to help as much as you can and thats what I try to do. Southampton manager Claude Puel believes Liverpool are one of the contenders for the Premier League this season. Next up for Lucas and Liverpool is a trip to Southampton on Saturday afternoon, where the title credentials of Klopps side will once again be put to the test. Lucas has made six appearances for Liverpool so far this season Every away game, you say these kind of games are difficult but you have to get the three points like it was against Crystal Palace and all the teams so its another hard one, Lucas said.Southampton always have very good teams and good players, some of the players are here with us now which shows how strong they can be. They probably havent had the results they wanted in the last few games but they are a very good side and it will be another big test for us.If we can get through that, it will be another sign that we are ready to challenge for everything.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!

The move comes after the Canadiens were approached by the Buffalo Sabres for permission to speak to Dudley - a former Sabres player and head coach. "The Sabres called for permission and I appreciate that, Im flattered, Dudley told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN. Nike Air Max Womens Sale 95 . Ronaldo produced a spectacular individual performance on Tuesday, scoring all three goals and guiding Portugal into the next years World Cup in Brazil with a 3-2 victory in Sweden. The Real Madrid forward has scored 66 goals in 2013, but the last three may be the boost he needs to upstage Messi after FIFA unexpectedly extended the voting period for the Ballon dOr to Nov. . Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. CLEVELAND -- Three games at Wrigley Field did to Kyle Schwarber what a shredded left knee, six grueling months of rehab and the Cleveland Indians havent: keep the Chicago Cubs slugger in check.The resilient 23-year-old completed a warp-speed recovery after tearing two ligaments in a collision with teammate Dexter Fowler on April 7. Schwarber returned for the World Series and drove in a pair of runs as the designated hitter in Chicagos 5-1 win over Cleveland in Game 2 last Wednesday.Still, doctors didnt trust his knee enough to let him play defense. The result? Three agonizing days in which Schwarber might have been the most anxious person at Wrigley Field.His only appearance during the Series first visit to the Friendly Confines since 1945 came when he popped out as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning of a 1-0 loss in Game 3.Now that its back to Cleveland for Game 6 on Tuesday night, Schwarber can resume his DH duties while the Cubs try to force a Game 7 in search of their first title in more than a century.It gives them some thunder that theyll situate right in the middle, which you have to respect, Indians manager Terry Francona said Monday. But I mean, theyve got a lot of other good bats, too. I think people can get carried away with some things.Kind of hard not to after Schwarber went 3 for 7 with two RBI and a pair of walks in Games 1 and 2. His teammates were left grasping for ways to explain how Schwarber could do that while facing big league pitching for the first time in more than 200 days.Hes a stud, Chicago second baseman Ben Zobrist said. Hes a special player.One whose mere presence provided the Cubs with an emotional jolt when he arrived on the eve of Game 1. The hulking former Indiana Hoosier needed only a weekend in the Arizona Fall League against minor leaguers to get up to speed.He could have just cashed it in and said, `Ill be ready for spring training, Zobrist said.Only Schwarber didnt. Dont let the easy smile or the wannabe hipsterr bloom of facial hair underneath his chin fool you -- below the surface, theres a work ethic that lacks an off switch. Nike Air Max Womens Sale Blue. chwarbers summer was a grind. He was early to the ballpark for physical therapy, followed by weight training or conditioning, extended time in the batting cage and then perhaps the hardest part: watching in sweatpants while Chicagos special season went on without him.It looked easy when he ripped a double off the wall against Indians ace Corey Kluber in Game 1. It wasnt.I dont know theres anybody in the league that can do that, Zobrist said. Its really, really difficult to wake up and get out of bed after six months ... and be a great hitter like he is.Yet all that momentum came to a halt in Chicago, a city that has embraced the barrel-chested masher from the Cincinnati suburbs as one of its own. On a team of preternaturally composed budding stars like Kris Bryant and Addison Russell, Schwarber is the go-for-broke kid. His swing is all swagger, menace and muscle. He doesnt step into the box looking to make contact. Thats not why the Cubs pay him, anyway.All that confidence couldnt make an impact from the bench at Wrigley, though. Chicago manager Joe Maddon tried to find spots for Schwarber, but his pinch-hit appearance in Game 3 was his only trip to the batters box. He was on deck when the Cubs made the final out of their Game 4 loss, and didnt even get that close during a Game 5 win.That wont be an issue in Cleveland, a development thats given Maddon a newfound appreciation for the DH, something that waned after he left the American League by bolting from Tampa Bay to Chicago in November 2014.Im a much bigger fan of the National League game in general, Maddon said. But under these circumstances where we are right now in the year, Ill take that American League game just to get Schwarbs involved.Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
