Liverpool remain level on points with Chelsea and City at the top of the Premier League table ahead of the global break, after a gruelling run of matches.

As for the impact of Sunday's draw on the title race, the Netherlands captain said: "I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the hard games we have against mid-table and lower teams".

Heading into the worldwide break, City, Liverpool and Chelsea are all on 20 points, with Arsenal and Tottenham two adrift.
