Joe Gomez believes the Premier League now moves at a “relentless” pace and Liverpool must work constantly to keep up to speed.
The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates after a James Milner strike was cancelled-out by Alexandre Lacazette.
Liverpool remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season, taking 27 points from 11 games, and yet Jurgen Klopp’s side are still two points behind leaders Manchester City.
“The level of the Premier League now is ridiculous, it’s relentless really,” Gomez said, as quoted by LiverpoolFC.com.
“You can’t slip up at any point or teams will capitalise. We have to remember that, regardless of who we are facing. Every point is so important.
“We can’t control what other teams do so there is no point worrying about their results. We just have to focus on ourselves.”
Gomez also revealed that the Liverpool squad constantly push one another to do better and never allow themselves to coast as a team.
“We are always on top of each other as a team, demanding more from ourselves and that’s how it has to be,” explained the centre-back.
“We got dominated at times in the first half but we still got the first goal and that shows we are capable of still producing when we’ve been under pressure.
“That’s important. If you want to get to where we want to get to then you need to have those credentials. We proved that but we can always improve and that’s what we’ll be trying to do for the next game.”
Gomez has been in fine form for the Reds this season, establishing himself in the main centre-back pairing alongside Virgil van Dijk ahead of Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip.
