Alonso says the Reds must learn from last season’s mistakes.
“We have to be cautious at this stage of the season,” said Alonso.
“We started well enough in the Premier League last year but could not sustain it.
“If you want to be challenging for the title you cannot afford to have a bad month, like we did last time.
“You have to be so consistent, so strong and our first objective is to go into the Christmas programme still in contention. If you are eight or nine points adrift at that stage, you are out of it and we don’t want a repeat that.”
