"On Thursday night I had a tablet from the doctor for my knee", said the 28-year-old, who missed the West Ham knee with his knee issue. "It was a tablet that could induce stomach pains", said Wijnaldum, was named man of the match. From Liverpool, you would have to put Virgil van Dijk in there, I think he has been vast.
"I think that really they deserved the win, they actually battered Chelsea".
"The manager called me and asked if I could play".
"I said to Jordan Henderson that I'd never seen Anfield like that at 3pm on Saturday". In the morning I was still weak and had diarrhoea. "At half-time I thought: "Oh no" but I ran inside and managed to control it!"

The 28-year-old Dutch worldwide, who scored a superb goal in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Bournemouth despite suffering from a stomach upset, admitted two successive draws had been a setback as the club chases a first league title since 1990. If that is their form between now and the end of the season, Liverpool have to win every game. Look no further than Aston Villa if you want a Championship classic because they have been part of multiple results ending 3-3 and they were part of the game of the season so far against Nottingham Forest, which finished 5-5.
"If we have a bad result we use that to put in a positive performance for the next game and that's what we've done".
"We have to see how it is going to work".
"If you see when they don't have the ball, the pressure that they make is impressive".
"I remember those first years going for titles and the weight of expectation and thinking "we have to try to get over the line" and you carry it with you every minute of every day".
Liverpool's midfield three of Wijnaldum, Fabinho and Naby Keïta impressed, with the summer signing from RB Leipzig producing one of his strongest games for the club.
