Liverpool deal big blow to Manchester City

Jurgen Klopp Pep Guardiola Manchester City Liverpool 030119

Jurgen Klopp's side are now six points clear of last season's league champions, but will go into the global break with a nine-point cushion if they can beat them at Anfield over the weekend.

Last time City went to Anfield in the league, Pep Guardiola set his team up defensively looking to not loose and you feel that the Spanish tactician will be looking for more of the same. Klopp responded by promising not to mention the "tactical fouls" City have been accused of making under Guardiola - while, of course, mentioning them. It was a rotten game of football last time, but this is what tension does to the best of teams - City can not afford to lose it. There is a huge difference between a nine-point and a potential three-point gap if the reigning Premier League champions were to get all three points on Sunday evening.

"If nothing changes and we're nine points behind, people will say this was the decider, but we could say the same about the games against Wolves, Norwich and Tottenham".

It is a tribute to City's growth and consistency under Guardiola that it could be argued they have not had the credit they deserve for this feat.

The trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane should start up top for Liverpool against Manchester City.

Vicious, filthy, unsubstantiated rumors have been swirling around for years that for a brief time in the early 1980s, Ms. According to PEOPLE , Crawford disclosed what it was like to be by Whitney's side as she exploded into superstardom.

Guardiola revealed: "I didn't like what happened in the bus outside the stadium, but in the stadium when they support the team, it's flawless, it's lovely.right now it's one of the toughest ones - I would say right now it's the toughest stadium in Europe to go to".

In his column for The Telegraph, Carragher revealed the news that Liverpool and Man City simply don't like eachother at all, even behind the scenes. I don't think so.

"After we had won and we'd celebrated, I rang him to ask how their crowd had reacted when Brighton took the lead against us".

"It is one of these games, after the miserable feeling of the last one, which will give everyone a "wow" moment". Liverpool could extend their lead to 9 points if they win the all-important game. "That's the only way I believe we can do it, not just at Anfield but all the stadiums around the world".

And yet there is more, so much more, to add spice to this latest collision of the Premier League's superpowers.
