City looks to halt Liverpool's march to Premier League title

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool will be prepared for Pep Guardiola’s “challenging” Man City

It sounds like we go there and we are more likely to win the game then they are.

"It depends on us", said City captain Vincent Kompany, a player never afraid to build up matches and tell it like it is.

"I have a feeling everyone can beat us but also that we can beat everyone".

"Of course if we win we will have more confidence, we will be happier than if we lose".

Klopp employs a number of the same principles, and through the "Gegenpress" has been one of the few managers who has been able to consistently trouble Guardiola's teams.

The Reds, though, won 10 of their 17 league games after the turn of the year and have taken 54 points from a possible 60 this season to match City's haul of 88 in 2018 - City hold sway on goal difference by a margin of six.

Chelsea 'in trouble' after Olivier Giroud injury - Maurizio Sarri
We have to wait for [Monday]. "Later in the evening I will see the doctor for the first results (of a scan) but it (the main scan) will be tomorrow".

Klopp and Pep Guardiola have both talked up the strength of their opposition, with the City boss returning the compliment by hailing Liverpool as the world's premier side. "I don't know [if] Milly gives lessons in how to deal with the situations - we are not at that point - but his influence on the team is massive, like it is with other players, but Milly especially". Sometimes we made it too easy for our opponents to get through and we left them too many open spaces.

Klopp's style, so similar in many ways to Guardiola's, clearly works as his kryptonite, and it accounted for City's Champions League hopes last season as they lost home and away to Liverpool in the quarter-finals.

He said: "For us, we don't go there to take Man City out of the race, we go there for a Premier League game". I know what happened after Chelsea and Leicester won the league, the year after was tough [for them]. It's the third of January, it's a very important game for both teams and I would use it as motivation for the other team'.

New Balance, the US-based sportswear manufacturer, is said to be in negotiations to extend ties with the English soccer club beyond its existing contract, which runs until the end of the 2019/20 season. It's hard with the qualities all the teams have but it's just not important what happens. I'd be shocked. I just can't see how they can stop Liverpool from scoring goals.

What caused the recent wobble of three losses in four Premier League games? He has proved a breath of fresh air to Klopp and Liverpool, providing a ideal blend of defensive solidity and attacking know-how, perfectly epitomised by his performance against Manchester United. I would absolutely love to see the current crop beat that record.

But City plan to press the Brazilian in pairs whenever he has the ball at his feet as Guardiola believes there is a mistake in Alisson if they can make him panic.
