Eddie Jones has said Britain dread no one in the Six Countries title race, demanding his side are accountable for their own fate.

Triumph against Ribs on Saturday saves them in the chase after the title and, however sterner tests anticipate against Ireland and France, Jones uncovered Manu Tuilagi could be back for both matches and accepts his side are as yet fit for lifting the trophy.England sit third in the table, a point behind Ireland and four behind France, who are the scorching top picks for the title in the wake of placing Scotland to the sword on Saturday to keep up with their 100 percent winning record.

Ireland, in the mean time, returned to winning ways with a commanding 57-6 win over Italy on Sunday and keeping in mind that Britain improved of Ridges at Twickenham on Saturday they were outscored three attempts to one and were left holding tight toward the end. Ireland are next up at Twickenham after the title’s second neglected week – a match Jones depicted as a “semi-last” – before Britain close their mission in Paris.

“There are three groups that can win it now and we are one of those three groups so we have significantly more conviction than the three groups that can’t win it,” Jones said.”We’re in a decent position. We’re accountable for our own fate. We’ve recently improved, continue to work on each game. We don’t fear anybody. It doesn’t matter to us others’ thought process. All we care about is what the future holds know we’re a decent youthful crew and a group that is creating.

“All things considered we’re in a great position and we’re anticipating playing a semi-last against Ireland. We’ve gotten going the Six Countries with a thin misfortune to Scotland, we were presumably the most predominant group, a decided success against Italy and a decent intense success against the Six Countries champions. So we’re most certainly heading down the correct path.”

Britain will hold an instructional course in Bristol one week from now prior to moving forward arrangements for the visit of Ireland. Tuilagi will be missing, while Luke Cowan-Dickie supported a knee injury against Ridges which could preclude him for the rest of the competition. Tom Curry will likewise need to advance through the graduated re-visitation of play conventions after he was removed on Saturday with a head injury.

Tuilagi was a late withdrawal last Thursday with one more hamstring injury, having just barely been named to make his Britain rebound. Jones said that Tuilagi would require a 10-day restoration period however saved judgment on whether he would be accessible to confront Ireland.

“I’m not in any event, mulling over everything right now,” he said. “Wounds have their own life. We will simply keep a watch out. Whenever we pick the crew for Bristol, he’s clearly not going to be accessible for that. Then, at that point, I will pick another crew for Ireland and I will see whether or not he is accessible. On the off chance that he is accessible and he’s fit we will pick him and in the event that he’s not then we will move on.””We need to acknowledge the nature of the rival,” Tuchel said. “This is the most hazardous assaulting side in Europe right now. Protecting this way and playing like this made me extremely glad today. I had the inclination we made somewhat more however perhaps that is abstract. This game effectively might have gone in any case. You want a touch of karma. Assuming that you take a gander at the line drawn for the objective of Romelu it is somewhat of a strange line [for offside]. Yet, that is it. We can’t have any regrets.”Klopp applauded Caoimhín Kelleher subsequent to beginning Liverpool’s No 2 goalkeeper rather than Alisson Becker. “It’s been very much an excursion from the kid I initially saw to the man he is presently,” Liverpool’s chief said.

Kelleher, 23, was asked what Klopp told him after Arrizabalaga’s punishment affirmed Liverpool’s triumph. “He recently said: ‘All around good accomplished for scoring the triumphant punishment, there’s a divider with every one of the goalkeepers on who have won cups so presently you can go on that,'” the Irishman said.
