The Reds scored two late goals to win against Aston Villa in the Premier League last weekend.
Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum - who joined the Reds from Newcastle United in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £25 million - has admitted that it is not easy winning games that way.
Wijnaldum told Goal.com when asked if it was more physically and mentally demanding to win games by scoring late goals: “It’s hard, really hard. You have to go until the end, and you have to go even when you don’t physically see a positive outcome.
“Especially at the end of the games, you just keep going because you think you can. Your body is tired and so you battle with your body like ‘no, we have to go, we have to go on’. It’s really hard, but in the end you enjoy it more if you win that way than if it is easy.”
Premier League title challenge
Liverpool narrowly missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City last season, but this campaign, the Reds seem determined to get the job done.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are at the top of the league table at the moment with 31 points from 11 matches, as many as six points clear of second-placed and defending English champions Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp’s side will face City at Anfield in the Premier League this weekend.
