Test of character for Liverpool as title race takes another turn

Test of character for Liverpool as title race takes another turn

It was nearly as if City had won the Premier League trophy itself at the final whistle with the celebrations - which included the injured Benjamin Mendy running onto the pitch to embrace hero Sergio Aguero.

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. "He will be saying "that's how good we are now".

The Netherlands worldwide was part of the Liverpool FC team that failed to extend their unbeaten run to 21 games in the current campaign.

Liverpool's next game is set to see attention switched to FA Cup matters in a third round clash with Wolves on Monday. "Unluckier than City I would say".

Unlike last season, it seems we have a Premier League title race on our hands this campaign.

Both teams won an average of 2.38 points in each of their 37 games, with Tottenham the only other team in England's top four divisions to surpass two points per game (2.24).

Widely praised for their neat, precise passing, City showed they can also roll up their sleeves on Thursday, working feverishly all over the pitch to pressurise the visitors whenever they were in possession.

Manchester City have scored the most goals in the league so far this season. My assessment of the game was positive - not of the result but of the game.

"We want to become a top club and you can not deny any game, we can not drop any competition".

"Twenty-nine years now without the league, what an opportunity, you don't want to keep playing game after game after game".

"I understand Alberto's position, he has been unbelievably professional and he is a really important part of the dressing room", the manager said.

"But I don't think this will change anything".

"Liverpool lost, but Klopp will be urging them to take massive confidence from the fact that a side as big as City reacted like when beating them".

"I thought it was a great challenge, was it not? You have to prove it in every game, not just on one day". "It's a shame but that's football; it's the way things are".
