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.

Reigning champions City cut Liverpool's lead at the top of the Premier League to four points with a tense 2-1 victory in a frenetic clash at the Etihad Stadium.

"We want to finish the season as strongly as possible and we are still in a pretty good position".

"If I was to put my money on one club for the league, it would be Liverpool", Van Gaal told The Mirror.

With no more league meetings between the sides to come, Liverpool's destiny is still in their own hands, but they will now have the pressure of having a City side that romped to the title with a record 100 points last season on their tails.

Recency bias ensured City were underestimated by pundits on Thursday - a complete contrast to the debate a few weeks ago about whether they could go unbeaten themselves or win the quadruple this season.

"That's what the top teams do and it's what we've got to do".

Lifesavers have been forced to close a number of beaches with 476 people treated on the Gold Coast and 461 on the Sunshine Coast. But a SLSQ spokesman described the latest influx as an "epidemic", while some local media outlets labelled it an "invasion".

The competition provides an opportunity for Liverpool to secure their first trophy under Jurgen Klopp, having yet to claim any silverware since the German's arrival at Anfield in 2015. When we win or we lose, we will not look back. "It's not a free hit against Wolves".

"I know it was a huge game, and a huge win for City".

"Vincent Kompany should've been sent off really, he's out of control and he's got to go there." said Merson.

"Don't get me wrong, I still love to watch City play but the way Klopp makes Liverpool play is absolutely fantastic".

"I remember Steven Gerrard's goal against West Ham [in the 2006 final]". Confidence, not panic, should be surging through Liverpool's players, who will be determined to prove that they have the character to be champions.

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. But it is what it is. "We can only try to do our bit and add to that history".
