Those worries are surely premature, with the intense nature of that run of games being sure to take a toll in the legs of a hard-running outfit at some point, and that aforementioned trip to Yorkshire starts off a more favourable run of fixtures the far side of the upcoming global break.
Any prolonged lay-off however would be a major blow for Liverpool as they look to keep up their flying start to the season and repeat their European heroics.
On Sunday, James Milner was withdrawn from Liverpool's contest with Manchester City after 30 minutes with a hamstring injury and James Pearce has since revealed that the midfielder will be out for a few weeks. "The boys unfortunately go away again now and have to play Nations Cup games - the most senseless competition in the world of football. I don't know. I [asked] him: 'Big one?' and he said: 'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'".
But my worry with Chelsea is where their other goals will come from if Hazard stops scoring as regularly, because their main strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are not exactly prolific. Mahrez missed a penalty which meant Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea are all level on points. The title race isn't a two horse race. After strengthening significantly in the summer, the expectation will be on Liverpool in getting a result with the hope of reclaiming the league title for the first time since the 89/90 season.
Pep Guardiola said his gameplan was to control possession and avoid losing the ball in areas where Liverpool could counterattack through Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané.
Yes it made for a drab game this time, but their real battle is only just beginning.
"I am really happy with what the boys did".
