Roberto Firmino believes Liverpool need to maintain their hot streak this season for the rest of December to ensure they remain in a strong position to win the Premier League.
The Reds sit at the top of the table after Manchester City dropped three points against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool are the only team in the Premier League yet to lose a game and this has made the difference at the top as the Anfield outfit is only one point ahead of the Sky Blues.
“December is always a special month in the Premier League,” he said. “There are a lot of games and it is often a decisive month in terms of the championship. This is a very important month for Liverpool.
“Of course it’s very difficult to stay unbeaten in this league. We’ll only do it with hard work. That’s what we’ve been doing until now, including going back right to the start when we came back for pre-season.
“We need to keep focused and fighting until the end to reach our goals and see where that gets us by the end of the season.
“This team has lofty ambitions and aims high. We are going for titles, we are a big club, we are always fighting for trophies. We’ll continue playing well, the way we are, and we’ll see where it gets us.”
