There's more pressure on City. Liverpool are favourites

Klopp baffled Kompany escaped red for Salah lunge Van Dijk: Liverpool not panicked by Man City and will definitely bounce back

Liverpool would have gone 10 points clear if they had beat City, and Murphy reckons that would have been enough to clinch the title.

"I'm just happy it didn't go over the line!"

At the start of this campaign, it was expected that Manchester City would run away with the league at a canter. We have won games against them, but in these games City were better.

The leading three may have the same amount of Premier League games left but it remains to be seen how many matches they have to play in Cup competitions and most importantly in the Champions League.

Guardiola feels Thursday's performance has got City's season back on the rails after three costly defeats in the space of four games in December.

"From my point of view we were never on a level with City since I came in", said the German.

When these two sides met at Molineux just before Christmas Liverpool were [1.55] favourites to win, yet here we can back what is sure to be a strong starting line-up at [2.04] for the victory.

That's because Klopp has trained them to be a fighting force, whether they have the ball or not.

In addition, there is now very limited access to the park during peak hours via the Highway 41 entrance. Joshua Tree said it would begin closing some campgrounds for all but day use.

But perhaps that pragmatism stems from Guardiola and City knowing that substance over style is sometimes the way to win - win ugly, even - when it matters in a title race.

"But tomorrow morning, we wake up and have the opportunity to prepare for the next game".

That's according to The Sun, who say the 19-year-old may be shown the door this month.

"That's why I said last time (after the Arsenal match) 'Do we need blood?"

"A few games this season we were lucky we have scored goals, and tonight we were quite unlucky with the chances that we had".

The Brazilian said: "Not at all - we have a point to prove every game". Ole Gunnar Solksjaer became just the second United manager after the legendary Sir Matt Busby (1946) to win his first four league games in charge of the Red Devils when his side won at St James's Park midweek.

Liverpool had been unbeaten in the league before their clash against Manchester City this week. Youngster Curtis Jones is another option if Klopp wants to give the youngster a chance to impress. You may remember they finished third and sixth, respectively.
