James Milner has admitted the fact that the festive schedule of Liverpool is letting them take the much-required breather, irrespective of the players being keen on continuing with the undefeated start to the season.
Liverpool is 4 points clear at the top of the table of Premier League after they won on Friday against Wolverhampton Wanderers. It moved them forward to the record of the club with 48 points after 18 games.
The side of Jurgen Klopp will not play again till they face Newcastle United on the Boxing Day. They are going to be in action at home on Saturday to Arsenal prior to visiting Manchester City, the title rivals after 5 days. This means that the Reds will have the longest time to recover in between the first and last game during the festive period. This is a stark contrast to the present Christmas fixture list that has gotten Jurgen Klopp dismayed.
