Liverpool… from a Manchester City perspective

While both sides have an outside chance of winning the title, the focus is primarily on ensuring their qualification for the Champions League next campaign.

"When I arrived here I said I wanted to play good, win games and win titles, as much as possible, definitely - but I think all colleagues in the Premier League and around the world at big clubs think the same".

Philippe Coutinho has called Liverpool's trip to Manchester City on Sunday afternoon a game they need to win as both sides aim for a second-placed finish in the Premier League. Are Man City and Tottenham out of reach?

But far from thinking his team selection in Monaco backfired or blaming poor defending, Guardiola felt the defeat was down to players not sticking to the game plan.

Harrington strikes Gold with Sizing John
He had the ideal prep when winning Newbury in February and 26% pf all stakes through the site have been on the proven stayer. Under Power's ideal stalking ride, Sizing John had both Djakadam and Native River in his sights at the second last.

It is not the first time Guardiola's methods have come into question with his desire to play out from the back and build intricate attacks coming unstuck at times.

Irrespective of the team, after Arsenal's capitulation at West Brom today, Liverpool now have a massive huge chance to consolidate a place in the top four. "The main thing is to keep performing, and if we keep performing like that things will come our way over time". Manchester City has two long-term absentees, Ilkay Gündogan and Gabriel Jesus.

"We're top between all the teams, even ahead of Chelsea".

On Origi: "Divock was off yesterday because he felt a little bit". We have shown we can beat anyone on our day, but it's about consistency and finishing the season strongly. I admire him a lot. These teams aren't good to be champions yet, but they'll be favorites in the future. In that scenario, I can all but guarantee that Klopp will play Mane or Coutinho out of position as a so-called "false 9", but what he should do (IMO) is just take the plunge and play Ben Woodburn, or Toni Gomes up-front. We knew before Burnley what everyone was saying about how we didn't manage to get results against the lower teams who play a different style of football compared to the top teams. Will Jurgen Klopp work on ideas to stop them playing?
