Fernandinho believes Liverpool will crack as Man City close the gap

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was not happy with Vincent Kompany's first half challenge that left Mohamed Salah in agony

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.

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

"Fair play to City and congratulations to them but we just have to keep going".

Speaking on the Blackpool vs Arsenal game, Owen said: "Blackpool v Arsenal Arsenal are unbeaten in their last nine games against Blackpool and they knocked the Tangerines out of the League Cup at the Emirates earlier in the season".

The excitement at Anfield is now at fever pitch with Liverpool four points clear at the top of the Premier League and enjoying one of the best seasons in recent memory.

Wolves have won more games in this fixture (50) than the Reds (35) in their history, with the sides drawing just 17 times.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has no desire to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon this January.

But the Liverpool Echo say there is no chance of Klopp forking out for the World Cup victor this month. Guardiola has won three La Liga, three Bundesliga titles to add to his Premier League triumph.

The City boss said: "I would like to have two months' holiday right now, definitely - this month is really tough, but it is what it is". Very intense game. We were unlucky in our finishing moments.

That's according to The Sun, who say the 19-year-old may be shown the door this month. At the beginning of the second half we suffered a little bit and after that even when they get the ball possession, we defended so well and didn't concede many chances. Liverpool do not have to play City every week and, when they face less stellar opponents, the chances are that Salah and Roberto Firmino will shine again and Virgil van Dijk will return to being imperious in defence.

"Don't get me wrong, I still love to watch the way City play".

Matt Doherty has scored thrice and assisted four goals in 21 appearances in the Premier League (1851 minutes).

Silva is a terrific player, though, and along with Fernandinho was really on his game on the night.

"We have to fight a lot, but this win gives us a lot of confidence". Only Tottenham Hotspurs and Liverpool in the top-six have managed to beat them at home.
